I'm doing benchmark test of Linux server using netperf. According to information at networksecuritytoolkit the theoretical max throughput rate for 1514-bytes packets is 117.35 Mbp/s.
However I'm getting 957 Mbp/s for UDP traffic of 1514 packets. I generate the traffic with netperf.

I am not sure how this can be possible. Does netperf return udp/tcp or Ethernet throughput?


That image says that the maximum UDP transfer rate over 1gbps ethernet is 119635891 Bytes per second.

Multiple 119635891 with 8 (one byte is 8 bits) and you get 957087128 == 957,08mbps
