Calculate the bandwidth utilization from the RMON data

Latest reply: Jul 17, 2019 14:59:38 729 17 18 5

RMON data is a performance platforms to monitor a packet transmit and receive. It captures a number of packet in a type of frame size, a total packet, bad packet, oversize packet, FCS (aka CRC), Jitter, broadcast, unicast, and so on. Some RMON data not showing a bandwidth utilization. Well, we can can calculate the bandwidth utilization through the number of packet provided.

To calculate the bandwidth, get the number of packet in aGood Octet Receive (byte)andGood Octet Transmitted (byte). Some RMON shows aReceived BytesandTransmitted Bytesinstead. And then, get the value of the capturesampling period(in a value of second). If there is no capture sampling period provided, we can consider the capture sampling period is per second (1 second).

Below is the example:

Here is the formula:

• Good Octet Receive = we take from the value of packet in the Good Octet Received / Receive Bytes
• Good Octet Transmit = we take from the value of packet in the Good Octet Transmitted / Transmiited Bytes.

• Sampling Period = we take from the value of sampling period. If there is no sampling period provided, we can consider it as 1 second sampling period.

• Configured bandwidth = we take from the port bandwidth (10Gbps, 1Gbps, 100Mbps, 10Mbps)

Sometimes customer/user want to know the traffic flow in each second, in this condition, need to uncheck the checkbox to show the traffic in seconds. x convention：

Yes indeed. But it will be no huge differ. The standard capture is per 5 seconds. x convention：
