n-Layer theroy question.... Wanted to check i am understanding the question
A system has an n-layer protocol hierarchy. Applications generate messages of length M bytes. At each of the layers, an h-byte header is added. Explain what fraction of the network bandwidth is filled with headers?
Am i correct in saying that the fraction of bandwith used depends on the amount of messages sent. As a header is added to each message that is sent & a header is added to every layer until it gets to physical transmission.
