What Is

What is throughput?

In IT, throughput refers to the amount of data that enters and goes through a system.

Throughput can be used to refer to how quickly a computer sends data through its components, including processor, buses and storage devices.

It is used in analysing internet performance to describe the number of data requests handled in a given period by a website server.

This means it is effectively synonymous with digital bandwidth consumption.
