Week 2 iLab:

Performance Management 10Mbps

Required questions from the Report section of the lab (75%)

 1. How many total bits/sec for the network would you expect to be sent for the frame size of 256 bytes?

For 256 bytes, total traffic, 4.096 Mbps

 2. How many total bits/sec for the network would you expect to be sent for the frame size of 512 bytes?

For 512 bytes, total traffic, 8.192 Mbps

 3. How many total bits/sec for the network would you expect to be sent for the frame size of 1,024 bytes?

For 1024 bytes, total traffic, 16.384 Mbps

 4. Compare the simulation results for the PK256_10Mbps run with your calculations from Question 1 part (a). Are they about the same?

With the amount that I came up with (4.096 Mbps) it is very close to what the graph states. It does vary a little above and a little below 4 Mb. However, the average of the bits sent do equal on average 4 Mb per a second.

 5. Compare the simulation results for the PK512_10Mbps run with your calculations from Question 1 part (a). Are they about the same?

From the graph above, the traffic throughput is roughly the same as the answer I came to. Like stated above, the traffic does vary however, the average is around 8 Mbps.

 6. Compare the simulation results for the PK1024_10Mbps run with your calculations from Question 1 part (a). Are they about the same?

The answer for the previous question was 16.384 Mbps. The traffic spiked through 18 Mbps and went down to almost 14 Mbps. This is the only one that had such difference with my answer. It does average roughly 16 Mbps, but there were several different spikes that might need more investigation.

 7. For the PK256_10Mbps run, compare the total traffic sent to the total traffic received. Are they the same? Would you expect them to be about the same? Why or why not?

With the PK256_10Mbps, it seems to be about the same but with a few differences. In the traffic received did not have...
