What Is Throughput?
Throughput is a measure of the amount of data that can be processed in a given period of time. It is typically measured in bits per second (bps) or bytes per second (Bps). Throughput measures how quickly data can be sent from one point to another, such as between two computers on a network. The higher the throughput, the faster and more efficient communication will be between these points.
In networking terms, throughput refers to the rate at which packets are successfully delivered over an internet connection. This includes both uploads and downloads; however, it does not take into account any latency or packet loss that may occur during transmission. Network administrators use this metric to determine if their networks are performing optimally and identify areas where improvements need to be made for better performance.
