After a look at an intrusion detection system, I saw the following statement :
"The IDS is able to analyse 10.000 characters (from packets) in 0.17ms" and I wanted to know the throughput in Gbps.
So I came up with the following solution but I would like someone to tell me if I do something wrong here. (the 8 comes from the fact that 1char = 8 bit)
This actually gives me :
So, I have 0.438269447 in Gbps ? but I was confused looking at this website, does that mean my answer is in Gbps or GB/s
(and does this mean, that the IDS is able to analyse almost half of the packets sent on a 1Gbps NIC)
