performance questions

By rcoolman ·
Can anyone point me to some good info on network performance? How fast should a small, switched, fast ethernet network actually transfer data? What is good, mediocre or poor performance in actual numbers? And what are some good ways to optimize sucha a network? Are there settings on the NICs, or elsewhere?
Thanks,

Well network performance is rather vauge. It all depends on how many users/computers you have in your network. 10BaseT (10 Mbits/sec) is good for small networks. 100BaseT (100 Mbits/sec) is for large networks. Hubs are good for connecting them all together because you can use regular (straight) cable. Switching hubs are better because they delegate more efficently and all users get an equal amount of bandwidth. For more info goto www.practicallynetworked.com

Sir,
I am sorry to say that your answer was so vague as to be virtually useless. However, since you are the only one who has responded and you did introduce me to an interesting website and its only 50 points, they're yours.
Thanks,
