Calucating IOPS - Whats tools do people use on Windows 2003 Sp1/SQL Server 2000.

I have a Windows 2003 SP1 server running SQL Server 2000 Enterprise w/ SP4. I have been tasked with calcultating:

1. The current IOPS used by our server at peak periods.

2. The maximum IOPS the installed 16 drive array can reach.

This is to help us determine what to purchase as replacement server hardware.

The vendors we are dealing with are asking for IOPS.

I have tried to use IOmeter to determine the array speed but it uses port 1066 which conflicts with LSASS on our server and it will not launch.  There seems to be no easy way to change the port it uses.

Anyone been down this road? What tools have you used?

Thanks.

Ok, I found a patch which allows IOMeter to change ports. Problem solved.
