Calculating IOPS per user in an Asp.net MSSQL System

by Jon 11. May 2010 09:52

I just had a customer contact me asking for read/write IOPS per user so they could correctly specify a SAN.  IOPS means I/O Operations per second, so they want to know how many disk operations occur under normal usage on a server.  

How do we find this out for a dotnet based system?  Well basic really when you think about it.  I logged into our development server and Started performance monitor and logged the background Disk Read/Write /Sec and wrote down the average values when our system wasnt being used.  I cleared the display and then started to use our web based system in anger, flipped back over to performance monitor and wrote down the new average Disk Read/Write /Sec values.  Subtracting the values I had just written down from the background usage of the server gives you the IOPS per user.

Nanos gigantium humeris insidentes

I have got round to getting a website and blog up and running the day after the Oscars, and although I haven't won any awards I still feel the need to thank everyone that have made it possible.  I am a developer at heart and just 5 or 10 years ago I would have been looking to chop the giant down at the waist and develop my own Blog software or develop a web app and using that instead of using else’s software.  Over the years I have come to the conclusion that what is the point, it is better to short circuit the development cycle, as long as the short circuit is worthy.  Software development is all about the customer or consumer and getting something developed as quickly as possible, which will exceed the customer’s requirements, this is the same for a simple blog.  If you can install a piece of software on a server you have saved yourself many hours which you can then dedicate to getting something else more productive done.  Of course I still need to be a dwarf, and the shoulder needs to be a good base; tweakable to exceed all my needs.  It’s all about getting things done, and that’s what this blog is about.I will be standing on the shoulders of many giants explaining how I get things done. It would be great to get and keep some readers but I don’t mind it only ends up being a simple brain dump of what is in my head, and things I get up to as a dotnet Developer/Manager.
