IOPS Recommendation for Dgraph Zero instances

According to the production checklist, a minimum of 1000 IOPS is required for Dgraph, while 3000 is recommend for medium/large data sets. I can see this being the case for Alpha nodes, but would this apply to Zero instances as well, and why?

Thanks in advance!


Shouldn’t be needed. Zero’s need a fraction of the resources of alphas, which do the heavy lifting.


Thanks - that’s what I thought as well. From your experience, what’s a reasonable IOPS rate for Zero instances supporting a high-throughput system?

Thanks again!
