|When is OSI going to get an OC-768? Is it in the budget? :-D|
|They're currently paying for mine. Whilst you think you posted it 40 mins ago, I actually read it on here an hour ago. Ph33r my OC-768! (I just haven't bothered replying 'til now)|
|You always mention "mirrored on libexec.net" yet when i got to libexec.net it tells me i a whore. :(|
|jake_null, I don't think they're calling you a whore, I think it's a request for whores.|
|It's been some time since I saw those figures, but is this taken from Cisco Academy CCNA Semester 1, Chapter 1 ? only thing missing are E1 etc lines, thou those aren't beeing used that much anymore anyway. Nice tut, good for freshing up my old brain cells|
|glitch: You're right... It *was* a request ;P
gabbana: Perhaps those values were at one point, I don't recall. They've been sitting in my home directory for quite some time now.
1Mb = (2^20)b = 1 048 576 b not 1000 000b
3Mb = 3 * 1 048 576b
700MB = 700 * 1 048 576B
1 Mbps == 10^6, not 2^20... Remember, this is (M)ega (b)its (p)er (s)econd
Check here and here
|So when your web-host claims that you have 1000 megs of bandwidth per month, they are actually using the term incorrectly? They ought to be using "Throughput" measured by month?|
|It goes both ways, for instance... If you signed up for a shared hosting type solution, it's generally measured as X GB (GigaByte) of transfer per month. Which means you can generally 'spike' the throughput to whatever you need (though I'm sure most admins will regulate it - it'd be dumb not to :-) *until* X GB is reached. The more expensive dedicated solutions measure in X Mbps - which means you can use whatever they give you in speed, 24x7. If you were given an unmetered 10Mbps link on your dedicated box at XYZ datacenter, you could use that entire 10 Mbps pipe all day everyday.
Hopefully that made sense.
|Jonny is RIGHT !!
1 Mbps = 2^20
1 Mbps = 1 048 576 bits
To verify: Go to www.google.com and in the search bar type the following:
1 Megabit in bits
|3rd line in the previous post should read:
1 Mbps = 1 048 576 bits per sec.
|The issue is standards. What you really need to know is if you are talking about Mibi or Mega. They are different units.
Mibi = 1024
Mega = 1000
When in doubt contact the manufacturer or provider, if it not on their website already.
|Sorry, that should have been
Mebi = 1024
|I've always used this :
Tranfer Time In (Seconds) = File Size (MB) / Throughput (Kbps) X 9600
Throughput (Kbps) = File Size (MB) / Transfer Time (Seconds) X 9600
Works For Me
|Thanks so much for exaplaining it so well! and even showing the examples, you explained it much better than all my network teachers in 2 years!|
|Very extraordinary article. I merely stumbled on your blog post along with planned to declare i get genuinely liked looking at your notions. However I shall be ever coming back i we imagine you article yet again before long.
