Enter the number of queries and the total time (hours) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Queries Per Second. 

Queries Per Second Formula

QPS = Q / T /3600


  • QPS is the Queries Per Second (queries/sec)
  • Q is the number of queries
  • T is the total time (hours)

To calculate Queries Per Second, divide the total queries by the total time in hours, then divide by 3600.

How to Calculate Queries Per Second?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Queries Per Second.

  1. First, determine the number of queries. 
  2. Next, determine the total time (hours). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = QPS = Q / T /3600.
  4. Finally, calculate the Queries Per Second.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

number of queries = 503

total time (hours) = 234
