file.iops.in

The number of file read operations per second. This metric is calculated by measuring the actual number of read requests made by a process. By default, this metric displays the total value for the defined scope. For example, if the scope is set to a group of machines, the metric value will be the total value for the whole group.

Note

The value of file.iops.in can differ from the value other tools show, as they are usually based on interpolating this value from the number of bytes read and written to the file system.
