what is latency? What is the latency considered according to Industrial standard? MIn/MAX/AVG?

Give me the reasons? Also provide me a documentation if any for further study?

Thank you

latency means delay.

I assume your question means 'network latency'??

I have never heard of any standards related to latency. In general, most applications and users can tolerate anything under 100ms, but local LAN latency is typically under 10ms.

For a network such as the Internet, typical latency values between client and host are in the 40ms range, slower hosts farther from the client typically hit 50-60ms, and more than 100ms latency means that clients stop trying because it's too slow.

Latency: In networking, the amount of time it takes a packet to travel from source to destination. Together, latency and bandwidth define the speed and capacity of a network.

Network Latency

Network Latency is defined as the average round-trip delay between the ingress and egress router port at core nodes. DNS Made Easy monitors the round trip network latency between core nodes using 64-byte ICMP Ping messages every five (5) minute interval. The measurements are recorded and the results are averaged on a monthly basis. The network latency standard is as follows:
Average latency within the European backbone will not exceed 65ms
Average latency within the North American backbone will not exceed 65ms
Average latency between North America and Europe will not exceed 120ms
Average latency between North America and Asia will not exceed 250ms

But, I think does not exists any standard for latency, i mean depends what you have on your network, like equipments, switches,routers, how many computer you have, etc.

I found this, maybe will be helpful for you
