System and disk alert conditions can indicate IOPS issues.
System: CPU (User) % is measures the CPU usage of the
processes on the node, normalized by the number of CPUs. This value is
scaled to a range of 0-100%.
A few common events may trigger these alerts:
Consider the following resolutions:
Review Indexing Strategies for possible further indexing improvements.
A temporary spike in disk utilization may result when creating new indexes.
Analyze Query Performance to review how your queries are using your indexes.
Use a faster disk drive with more hardware resources.
Move operations from disks with large workloads to different disks.
To observe high disk utilization, open the Hardware Metrics section of the Metrics tab and find the following metrics:
IOPS value greater than the provisioned IOPS value
Normalized System CPU
High IOWait curve
IOWait measures the percentage of time the CPU runs idle waiting for an I/O operation to complete.
