round-trip time

(RTT) A measure of the current delay on a network, found by timing a packet bounced off some remote host. This can be done with ping -s.

* Round-trip time (measured in milliseconds) is the time required for a signal packet to travel from a specific source to a specific destination and back again.
However the net effect is to measure round-trip time and throughput, then use that core KPI measurement to derive latency, time to first byte, time to last byte, availability, and more.
"The problem," Rosenbluh says, "is that the randomness repeats itself every round-trip time."
An unintended consequence of this behavior is that latency in the network will trigger such a slowdown, even if the latency is simply caused by a long round-trip time (RTT) for the packet and its acknowledgement.
If we look for a time--short--compared to the round-trip time of flight, the input impedance of a transmission line is the characteristic impedance of the line.
Due to the warping of space-time by the Sun's gravitational field, the round-trip time to the spacecraft was a trace longer than it would have been without this relativistic curvature.
Upon receiving the probe-reply packet, the source node determines the round-trip time, RTT, and then normalizes RTT with respect to the distance between the source and destination.
