What's excessive disk IO?
I’m kinda new to DO. I have a project that will involve writing a very large number of small files. The smallest droplet outperforms my own hardware, so I’d like to use that with an attached volume. I’m single-threaded right now, and a small test run suggests that I’m generating a sustained 55-60MB/s write. I can tolerate a slower write. My hardware seems to complete the workload at about half the speed of a droplet.
I’m not seeing any separate IOPS charges in the billing data. I don’t see an official limit. Every question I can find on this topic is old.
Before I go any further, is it generally safe for me to have an application that writes like this for a longer period?
Thanks in advance.
