In general terms, overhead means anything extra that shouldn’ t be. So what is overhead in networking or how it’s affecting the entire network performance? It does not seem irrelevant for us to know something that most of us deal in everyday life knowingly or unknowingly. The technology like Ethernet that we use most to transfer data over the network is the main focus on this paper to measure the overhead. We all know the bandwidth we get from ISP, that’s what we …show more content…

of data transmission. Bandwidth limitations cause network throughput issues because the entire network can only run as fast as its slowest link. These bottlenecks create reduced network performance. Another great factor is the asymmetry which offers higher bandwidth in one direction then other for internet access. This was developed in terms of common user internet uses behavior that people download more than they upload to the internet. From the better network design perspective it’s important to
