Enter the throughput in MBps and the KB per IO into the calculator to determine the IPOS.

## Throughput to IOPS Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the IOPS.

IOPS = (T / (KB/IO) ) * 1024
• Where IOPS is the input output operations per second
• T is the through put (MB/s)
• KB/IO is the kilobytes per input-output operation

To calculate IOPS from throughput, divide the throughput by the kilobytes per IO, then multiply by 1024.

## What is a IOPS?

Definition:

IOPS is short for input-output operations per second. It measures the total data transfer per second in a typical input-output process.

## How to Calculate IOPS from Throughput?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate IOPS.

First, determine the total throughput. For this example problem, the total throughput is measured to be 100 MB/s.

Next, determine the KB/IO. The kilobytes per operation, in this case, is measured to be 50.

Finally, calculate the IOPOS using the formula above:

IOPS = (T / (KB/IO) ) * 1024

IOPS = (100/ 50) * 1024

IOPS = 2048 IOPS
