We are using AWS hosts.
I noticed that their KV selected EBS with a speed limit of 120MB for 3 TiKV. If there are a lot of read and write operations, will the speed be throttled?

It feels too low for TiKV.

This speed is like a mechanical hard drive.

| username: tidb狂热爱好者 | Original post link

The mechanical disk has a write speed of 250MB/s.

Not even as good as a mechanical drive :grin:

This configuration cannot bring out the performance of the database.

If the TiKV memory is large enough, it should be able to manage.

If you don’t use high-performance disks for TiKV nodes in TiDB, it will be very problematic later on…

In a production environment, TiKV machines should all be NVMe, right? If it’s a small system with low concurrency, just use a regular MySQL.

Performance is even worse than a mechanical disk, probably fatal.

This disk latency configuration is quite eye-catching.

| username: redgame | Original post link

Too low.

| username: TiDBer_vfJBUcxl | Original post link

Low, poor performance.

| username: DBAER | Original post link

This performance definitely won’t cut it, it might even be worse than a laptop.

It should be very slow, TiDB has high IO requirements.
