Our site has been running slow recently and I've noticed that the RDS write IOPS can go as high as 80/sec and as low as 9/sec.
Is this something that could be causing pages to load slowly? If so what could be causing it. Our RDS is a db.m3.large with 7.5 GiB memory and 100 GB SSD storage. On average we have about 2 people using our application at once, 5 max often just 1.
Sorry if I'm not giving enough info, I'm very new to systems admin.
