It's better to look at latency, if you suspect a performance issues.

and use esxtop, to look at disk performance latency (read and write) values above 10ms, indicate slow storage.

using esxtop, select d - disk mode, and then look at CMD/s shows current IOPS.

If you want to look at IOPS on your datastore, you can download VMTurbo for IOPS analysis http://www.vmturbo.com/

also see this Guide, which shows how you can view IOPS in vCenter Server
