dsTest TPS-to-PPS Multiplier

The table below contains the Transactions Per Second (TPS) to Packets Per Second (PPS) Multipliers for use with dsTest interface applications and user plane traffic.  One transaction is defined as one request message and one response message.

TCP control packets  and data packets without payload are not counted as part of the Packets/Transaction multiplier.

Use the appropriate multiplier when determining the TPS to be licensed and when configuring resources/capacity of data links.

 

Application PPS/Transaction
Default PPS 2
Diameter 2
GTP-C 2
GTP SMARTFLOW 100
Data Verification 100
Basic Data
(including Non-IP Data over User Plane)
100
Data Pass Thru 100
HTTP/HTML 50
HTTP/JSON (ReST) 2
ReSTFUL Network APIs 2
SIP 2
RTP 50
DNS 10
Data over NAS (Non-IP Data) 2

For example, 100 GTP-U packets with TCP = 1 TPS.  If the Device Under Test (DUT) is surrounded by dsTest,  sending 50 PPS and receiving 50 PPS on both sides of the DUT that would count as 2 TPS.
