In our drive test,RLC throughput is low (very low) in most of the area, but application throughput is very good in those area. Is it normal? 1st November 2009 at 11:27 #59401 PixGuest Hi, It is impossible ! The application data is trasferred over RLC protocol… so : RLC throughput = Application throughput + RLC “signalling” (I say signalling, but as said earlier, it is a bit more than that) You can see that both throughput should be linked. Check your throughput over a bigger time average, don’t look at instantaneous throughput. Cheers, pix 5th November 2009 at 08:54 #59402 silenceGuest ksa, In any case application throughput can never be more than RLC. In ideal case it may be same as RLC but never same. You will have applicationlayer packet drops/retransmissions above the RLC so it will always be less. As you go up the stack throughput will reduce. 20th October 2010 at 22:18 #59403 Gordana StojkovicGuest in 3g drive test we experienced there was a very small RLC throughput (it almost didn’t existed) 20th October 2010 at 23:10 #59404 Gordana StojkovicGuest n 3g drive test we experienced there was a very small RLC throughput (it almost didn’t exist) and higher application throughput. How? 13th July 2020 at 15:35 #73421 Fco. ArceGuest In LTE, I am having low levels in the Throughput app, what situations could cause it?
