I have a dedicated server with a 10mb connection at a server complex:

Does ethernet etc handle 10mb/s regardless of packet size ( assuming udp )

i.e does it handle 100,000 udp packets a second ( 8 byte header + 2 byte payload )
just the same as 1,000 udp packets a second ( 8 byte header + 1000 byte payload ) ,

( nb, i didnt take into consideration 20byte ip header and ethernet header, just to simplify my question ).

No there is a per packet overhead.
Also, the risk of collision will be different.
