IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second)
operations per second) is the standard unit of measurement for the maximum number of reads and
writes to non-contiguous
storage locations. IOPS is pronounced EYE-OPS.
IOPs is often measured with an open source network testing tool called an Iometer. Measuring
both IOPS and latency
can help a network administrator predict how much load a network can handle without performance
being negatively affected.
