Can somebody please explain what kpps mean?

It's an abreviation of kilo packets per second, but i don't understand what is refering to.

I saw that the cisco router's performance is measured in kpps...

Thank you

I have this problem too.

In simple terms kpps=kilo packets per second, and Mpps= Mega Packets Per Second.

Its actually to represent how many packets a router may be able to route in a given second, and is more meaningful than the bps terms as the bps would greatly matter depending upon the interface.

I hope that helps,

Kind Regards,
