Trying to check a document for someone and need to verify some file transfer times over 10/100 switches and Gigabit Switches. I am using this Web Utility, but it is giving me different figures to the document I am proof reading so I am not sure if it is accurate
Can anyone let me know if it is accurate or give me a link to a known reliable utility?
Don’t fall into the trap of Bits n Bytes, LAN/Comms speeds are in Bits per Second (bps) and file sizes are expressed in Bytes. Then as julians states there’s theoretical and real world to consider. Quick mental calc is use divide the speed of the link (in bits per second) by ten which will give you an idea if the figures look in the ball park. So a 100Mbps (or M/bits) link /10 gives you a thoughput of about 10Mbytes per second.
It’s giving the correct numbers if you want theoretical maximum – though as mentioned above there is overhead even if all works perfectly, so the theoretical maximum is actually an unobtainable figure.
