# Packets per second confusion

Posted on 2014-01-02

I have an ENET card rated for 25000 pps max. Question: I have a total of 45 devices that I am designing a LAN design for each device is using a total of 12 bytes ( 6 in 6 out) my calculation of (540 x 8) 4320 bits. Running at 100Mbps my calculation comes out to 23148 pps (100Mbps/4320)

My problem or misunderstanding is if I add more devices which increases my total bytes decreases my pps. If my card is rated for 25000 pps max. By the math I can add more devices hence decreases my pps I turn would be under my 25000 pps limit even more. Does anyone have an idea where I might be looking at this wrong.

Thanks Steve
