Andrew-et all,

You might see inflated IOPS when you use 'physical reads' or 'physical writes' in the equation. The metric 'physical reads' records the number of block requests and a block requests will always be higher than IO requests.  Use 'physical read/write IO requests' while calculating disk IOPS.

Also disk IOPS might be significantly higher than the database IOPS when you add the RAID/parity overheads.
