Latency, Throughput and NO NO NO NO.
Are you guys on crack?
Latency is network based. Host to host. It takes 45ms for my packet to get from my computer to your computer.
Throughput is network based. Host to host. I can achieve from my computer to your computer 1000 kilobits per second in throughput.
Server level "latency" is some other crap, I'm sorry but us networkers REFUSE to accept your junky server problems as either latency or throughput, find new words server monkeys! Make em up! Here are some suggestions, processor bound response time, PBRT (latency for server geeks), processor bound data transfer PBDT (throughput for server geeks).
Damn it server monkeys, get off my network! And stop blaming it for your latency and throughput whines! *Shakes cane*
