throughput

[′thrü‚pu̇t]
(chemical engineering)
The volume of feedstock charged to a process equipment unit during a specified time.
(communications)
A measure of the effective rate of transmission of data by a communications system.
(computer science)

(mining engineering)
The quantity of ore or other material passed through a mill or a section of a mill in a given time or at a given rate.

throughput

(1)
The rate at which a processor can work expressed in instructions per second or jobs per hour or some other unit of performance.

throughput

The amount of work performed by a computer within a given time. It is a combination of internal processing speed (32-bit vs. 64-bit, etc.), peripheral speeds (I/O) and the efficiency of the operating system, other system software and applications all working together. Transactions processed per second (TPS) is one metric commonly used to gauge throughput. See 32-bit computing and 64-bit computing.

It periodically scans all available Wi-Fi channels and constructs a channel information map, which contains the signal strength value of each AP and the channel utilization value.
Thus, the channel utilization can be optimized by exploiting the OpenFlow based WBN.
Equation (8) shows that channel utilization is reduced if numbers of collided slots are increased and the numbers of slots used are reduced.
Consequently, the channel utilization (u(t)) for a time period (t - w, t) is given by the area under the channel activity function (f (t)) curve [27]:
3% ([approximately or equal to]100*NENT TxOps*7/1024*S/) of the channel utilization when NENT TxOps = 4.
Most importantly, managers should keep in mind that the firm's strategy is the starting point for all development, including electronic channel utilization.
When compared to the indexes of the channel utilization in Table 1, it shows that the spectrum prediction can improve the channel utilization.
6, we observe that the channel utilization of the OSS system [eta] increases with the increase of [[rho].
Another set of simulations demonstrates how channel utilization influences the delay spread.
The first two objectives are to minimize the channel utilization, interference level and contention throughout the network.
In this section, we present the cross-layer measurement of channel utilization to determine collisions due to network congestion.
QoS parameters in our models are expressed in the following parameters: data packet losses, channel utilization parameters, probabilities of channel and system failures, mean value of waiting time, average number of data packets in the buffer.
