Answer

It is possible to limit the IO of a volume through a QoS policy at the volume level.

Note:

  • It should be noted that limiting the IO rate of a volume may affect performance.
  • Therefore, when configuring QoS policies, a balance should be struck based on the requirements of the application to ensure that there is no adverse impact on performance.
