    Hello, everyone.

    There are a lot of performance indicators in datasheet, such as switching bandwidth, switching capacity, forwarding rate, backplane...

    But there is no description of each indicator.
    So I don't understand what it means, just plausible guessing.

    Please let me know about definition of indicators and how to calculate it.
    Here is the list.

    - Throughput
    - Switching Bandwidth
    - Switching Capacity
    - Forwarding Rate
    - Backplane
    - Switch Fabric
