Does anyone know what the IOPS requirements are for using Open Dental with 10 users?

It varies greatly with how Open Dental is used. Are you concerned about IOPS for any particular reason as to where you would need to monitor or control the amount? Keep in mind that Open Dental has the potential to be doing lots of IO operations without anyone being present. We give the ability to shut these things off if needed but you then have to ask yourself "how important is it that I see an appointment added to the schedule by the front desk within 10 seconds?" and other questions like that if you start turning these features off.
The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.
