Science DMZ Backplane Limits

A common performance problem can be related to the design of a network device. In some cases, larger capacities are offered via the combining of smaller speed components. E.g. the aggregate performance of a device could be listed as 100Gbps, but is really limited to a single stream of 10Gbps due to the fact that it is combination of 10 10Gbps capable channels. This video explores ways to test the performance of network devices, to determine if there are internal bottlenecks.
