    Hi all,

    I have a lab for practising routing protocols... One of the resourses I have read that is saying "....because your case is suspecting saturation and packet loss on the public peer's network interface facing.... ". I know the packet loss and also guessing meaning of the saturation etc....But I like to ask about what does "saturation" exactly mean? Anyone can explain nd give some examples in real-world cases?

    Hi Arix, 


    I would think that the context of this is regarding the saturation and packet loss on the interface. It probably means the interface is running around the capacity and hence may see packet loss. For example if an interface is 10Gig and you can see traffic around 9 Gig or so on that interface then it would mean it is almost saturated and may result into packet loss in case the traffic increases.


    Hope this helps.
