## What is a throughput analysis?

Throughput analysis allows you to analyze a reliability block diagram (RBD) such that each component within the system is designed to process (make) something while it is in operation.

**What is a throughput graph?**

This graph shows the amount of throughput on the server during each second of the load test scenario run. Throughput is measured in bytes or megabytes and represents the amount of data that the Vusers received from the server at any given second.

**How do you analyze throughput in Wireshark?**

You can do that by using the Conversations Statistic (in the Statistics menu) and filter the conversation from the TCP tab. The use the popup menu to filter the conversation. The conversation statistic can also tell you the throughput per TCP session right away (bps A->B and bps B->A).

### How do I analyze my LoadRunner results?

For Analysis to access a LoadRunner Enterprise project, you need to perform the following: Install Analysis. You can download Standalone Analysis from the From the LoadRunner Enterprise navigation toolbar, click and selectDownload Applications > Standalone Analysis.

**How do you read the throughput chart?**

Throughput Graph axes represent:

- X-axis: This graph shows elapsed time on X-axis. The elapsed time may be relative time or actual time as per the setting of graph.
- Y-axis: It represents the amount of data received from server to client (in bytes/KB/MB)

**How do you read throughput?**

To calculate the average read throughput of each disk, the total number of bytes read is divided by the total read time during the collection interval. This data is aggregated by the disk group name to get the average read throughput of a disk group. The data is displayed for all instances that are part of the cluster.

## Can Wireshark measure throughput?

We can measure bandwidth consumption by conversations in IP, TCP, UDP or Ethernet.

**What is throughput in LoadRunner?**

Throughput represents the amount of data that the VUsers received from the server at any given second. This graph helps you to evaluate the amount of load VUsers generate, in terms of server throughput.

**What is Analysis in LoadRunner?**

LoadRunner Analysis is a software that analyses executed tests. LoadRunner Analysis takes the dump in that has been created by the controller during testing. The dump contains raw data that gets processed by LoadRunner Analysis to create different tables and diagrams.

### How do you calculate throughput in Excel?

The throughput efficiency formula can be calculated more than one way, but the general formula is I = R * T. In other words, Inventory = Rate multiplied by Time, where “rate” is the throughput.

**Is high throughput good or bad?**

Throughput is a good way to measure the performance of the network connection because it tells you how many messages are arriving at their destination successfully. If the majority of messages are delivered successfully then throughput will be considered high.

**How do you calculate throughput and response time with example?**

Throughput is calculated as requests/unit of time. The time is calculated from the start of the first sample to the end of the last sample. This includes any intervals between samples, as it is supposed to represent the load on the server. The formula is: Throughput = (number of requests) / (total time).

## How is TCP throughput calculated?

The Mathis Equation states that the maximum throughput achieved by a TCP connection can be calculated by dividing MSS by RTT and multiplying the result by 1 over the square root of p, where p represents the packet loss.

**How does Wireshark calculate throughput time?**

You can simply get the number of ICMP ping request packets through wireshark filters. Multiply it with the default ping packet size and then divide by the total time.

**What factors affect throughput?**

Factors that Affect Throughput

- Transmission Medium Limitation. Like we said above, bandwidth (or the theoretical capacity) of a particular transmission medium will limit the throughput over that medium.
- Enforced Limitation.
- Network Congestion.
- Latency.
- Packet Loss and Errors.
- Protocol Operation.

### How many types of graphs are available in LoadRunner?

There are 5 graphs on Load Runner. Based on LoadRunner Ver 8.0 there are 6 kinds of graphs available. You can get Line Graph, Point Graph, Bar Graph, Pie Graph, Area Graph and Line Graph(No points).

**How is pacing calculated in LoadRunner?**

Here RT+TT is Script Execution Time SET which you can calculate by running script once and adding up all the RT of transactions and all think times. Assume SET to be 60 seconds. Now Putting all values in Little’s Law: 50 = 16.66 (60 – Pacing) Pacing = 60 – 50/16.66 Pacing = 57 secs (approx).
