Throughput

Throughput is a computing term that measures the number of units a network processes within a specific period of time, typically an hour. SMBs can use this calculation to determine the volume of work or information that flows through a computer system and how much data transfers from one location to another.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Throughput

Low throughput can mean poor network performance, which can slow down applications and web services. That's why it's essential a small to midsize business measures throughput regularly. It can solve any network-related problems before these issues impact its organization.
