tx/load and rx/load value

Hi, newbie here, working as network support now.

Just want to ask what factor cause the tx/load and rx/load value become increase like this

"""

MTU 1514 bytes, BW 9 Kbit, DLY 500000 usec,

reliability 255/255, txload 209/255, rxload 253/255

"""

is it related to the bandwidth setting to less (only 9 kbit), or because of too many of users using the line. or others reason.

thanks.

Re: tx/load and rx/load value

Hi,

The loads will be worked out as:

(average interface utilisation over the load-interval)/(interface bandwidth, as configured by the bandwidth command).

In your case, the bandwidth is really low which is why the load is so high. Based on your output, you would have had a transmit rate of 209/255*9k (7.3k) and a receive rate of almost 9k on that interface when you issued the command.

Hope that helps.
