Suppose an application generates chunks of 40 bytes of data every 20 msec, and each chunk gets encapsulated in a TCP segment and then an IP datagram. What percentage of each datagram will be overhead, and what percentage will be application data?

Best answer

Consider the data,

The size of chunks generated = 40 bytes

The time is taken to generate a chunk = 

The size of the TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) header = 20 bytes

The size of the IP header = 20 bytes

Calculate the total size of the header by using the below formula:

Calculate the total segment size by using the below formula:

Calculate the percentage of the datagram is as following:

Therefore, the percentage of overhead is  and application data is .
