How to convert IOPS to Throughput
This tool converts IOPS to Throughput. The formula used for the conversion of IOPS to throughput is:
Throughput = (IOPS * IO Block Size) / 1024
The steps to convert IOPS to Throughput are:
- Multiply the IOPS by the IO Block Size in kilobytes (KB).
- Divide the result by 1024 to convert it to MB/s.
For example, if you have an application that generates 1,000 IOPS with a block size of 8KB, then the throughput can be calculated as follows:
- 1,000 * 8 KB = 8000 KB
- 8,000 KB / 1024 = 7.8125 MB/s
Let's simplify the calculation:
Throughput = (1000 * 8) / 1024 = 7.8125 MB/s
Therefore for 1,000 IOPS with an I/O block size of 8 KB, the throughput would be 7.8125 MB/s.
Note: IOPS to Throughput calculations use Base 2 standards, 1 GB = 1024 MB, 1 MB = 1024 KB.
