What is Utilization?
Q: "My question seems simple enough - it's about what exactly is the %Utilization dial on network analyzers (ie Sniffer) measuring? I've read it to be measuring the %utilization of the "pipe" in use. What is this 'pipe'? Is it the backplane of the switch? Is it the 100mb/s port that the sniffer is plugged into? What if you have a vlan spanned to the monitor port? Then what is this 'pipe'?"
