means that there were 675 write requests per second over the last one minute.
As Other Chris (tm) mentioned this is exp decaying reservoir.
Uses an exponentially decaying sample of 1028 elements, which offers a 99.9% confidence
level with a 5% margin of error assuming a normal distribution, and an alpha factor
of 0.015
which heavily biases the sample to the past 5 minutes of measurements.
