IOPS is specifically for storage (Input / Output).

Do you mean network bandwidth? That would be bits per second. (bps)

packets/s or kbytes/s - you can use SAR to monitor:

sar -n DEV

The normal measures for a network are bits per (eg 1Gb/s) for most parts of the infrastructure and packets per second for things like switches etc

I agree with Gerwin's first answer, the closest analogous measurement would be packets/s (pps).  Switch, router and firewall performance often includes a maximum pps value.  Ultimately though it would depend on why you want to know.

Can you give us some context?  Why do you want to know?
