- CALCnet 2.2 Speed Benchmarking
- 06 Oct 2010 12:24:00 am Permalink
People love to hear how cool a protocol is, and EEs and CompEs are interested in the OSI model, and robustness, and collision detection, but in the end, laypeople want the answer to the question: How fast is it? I'm happy to present a fun little program that answers those questions. The CALCnet2.2 whitepaper is two sections from expanding from its current ten pages to completion, and I'm happy to have this program to help me generate graphs. It performs two-node unidirectional and bidirectional network saturation tests. In the following screenshots, I'm using 255-byte frames, the maximum per-frame size for CALCnet 2.2. The figures shown are bytes, ##/## means (data bytes)/(total bytes including headers). I will be testing with a variety of frame sizes and network members for the whitepaper, and I'll present my findings here as they progress.
