Goodput vs. Throughput

Views: 123


Application-level throughput, i.e. the number of useful bits per unit of time forwarded by the network from source to destination, excluding protocol overhead such as retransmissions.


(networking) The rate at which data is transferred through a system.


In computer networks, goodput (a portmanteau of good and throughput) is the application-level throughput of a communication; i.e. the number of useful information bits delivered by the network to a certain destination per unit of time.


(operations) The rate of production; the rate at which something can be processed.

β€˜The factory managed a throughput of 120 units per hour.’; β€˜"if the rate of heating is substantially reduced, not only is the throughput of the apparatus diminished and the cost of the process increased, but the properties of the resultant coke are detrimentally affected."’;


(optics) lang=en.


output relative to input; the amount passing through a system from input to output (especially of a computer program over a period of time)



In general terms, throughput is the rate of production or the rate at which something is processed. When used in the context of communication networks, such as Ethernet or packet radio, throughput or network throughput is the rate of successful message delivery over a communication channel.
