IOPS limits restrict the total number of read/write operations per second. When the limit is reached the read/write operations stop until current second expires.
I'm looking for how to properly configure this new setting. For example, let's say we currently have an IO limit of 4MBps (thus a setting of 4096, since it's in KB)... what is a reasonable IOPS setting?
If each IO is 4KB (pretty common with most Linux File systems), you are also setting the throughput, or io limit covered in the section below. 1000 IOPS @ 4KB block size per request equals about 4000KB/s or 4MB/s
Unfortunately, when trying to set IOPS to 1024, the customer sees something VERY strange in cPanel:
Thus... my question... how do we use this feature properly?
Bogdan, the question is really... how do we use the feature? There is no documentation. Is IOPS set as bytes or kilobytes? What is a realistic number to use, for whatever setting you currently have as a Disk IO limit?
Any type of information would be good. I just find it hard to believe the feature was released, but there is no documentation as to how to use it.
I have this same issue on my servers with it showing /1024. It is quite misleading to the customers and I have fairly often tickets about this asking if they are exceeding a limit. Maybe we could have an option to hide this in Cpanel?
