What is bandwidth?


Bandwidth is the network’s maximum data transfer capacity in a specific time frame. Bandwidth is typically a measure of the amount of data you can transmit in one second - e.g., megabits per second (Mbps).

In the world of NXLog

When transferring logs, the amount of log data you can send over the network in a given time frame highly depends on the available bandwidth. Not to be confused with EPS, though. For example, consider the bandwidth required to aggregate logs from thousands of computers or transfer logs from high-volume log sources over the network.

Known as

network throughput, data transfer rate
