Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Artemis IOPS Limiter strategy

The TimedBuffer actually had this functionality. I didn't realize this
semantic change on the timed waits. I'm strongly thinking about
reverting to the previous functionality.

This could even be the case of -1 the current releases, as this will
just keep writing bursts beyond the disk capacity.

That's why we calculate the IOPs the disk can perform when we create a
journal, but the TimedBuffer is just ignoring such setting after your
