I/O Bound

I/O bound is used to describe a situation where the input/output of a system is limiting its performance. There are many ways in which you can increase your I/O bound, such as using a faster drive or increasing the number of drives in your system. Another option is to install more memory on your computer to have enough RAM to handle all its operations without using up too much CPU power.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About I/O Bound

It's important for SMBs to understand the I/O bound for their system. If the I/O bound is too high, it could cause problems with other systems on the network and lead to a decrease in productivity across multiple areas of the business.
