Hey guys, hoping someone can help me to pin down my understanding of these measurements. I think i got it but i might be over thinking it
So i think of bandwidth the same way most people describe it, how wide the highway or pipe is. the wider it is (aka 10Mbps vs 100Mbps vs 1Gbps) the more bits ps second can move through at a time.
throughput being the actual number after 'x' conditions are taken into account which impact the available bandwidth. i guess pot holes or construction work on the highway . this would be the true speed/bandwidth.
latency being the 'x' conditions in throughput, measured in the time it takes for 'y' data to move from point a to point b.
then speed, in my head speed is how fast the signals are moving, which is why when thinking of bandwidth i think im getting confused. really the signals them selves on say a 100Mbps vs a 1Gbps connection are still moving at the same rate. but the reason the "speed" or bandwidth is higher is because the highway is wider.
am i "rite" or have i gone crazy
