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.

Thanks

Hello Vao,

As the packages go from the top layer to the physical the size of the actual package increases for each layer with a h header
the % of the bandwidth used by the headers*layers addons will always be the same
(only the _absolute_ number of bites represented by the headers*layers addons will vary as the _absolute_ number of packages varies)


Answer: n*h/(m+(n*h))
