These numbers have been generated by Hewlett-Packard, using testers from Ixia Communications. Ixia testers are used by a
number of network testing houses and the press to determine performance numbers for networking equipment. In these tests,
32 ports were used for Gigabit testing, 192 ports for 100 Mb testing. All ports were full duplex. Numbers presented here are
condensed from Ixia reports in order to save space.
Testing done on the HP ProCurve Switch 5308xl. Maximum rate of throughput (100%) would be the
same for the 5304xl but at one-half the number of packets since the 5304xl has one-half the possible
number of ports of the 5308xl.

3.1.3 Throughput Test Comments

A fully meshed performance test sends packets from each port to every other port during the test. This
test exercises both the modules and the backplane. These tests show the HP ProCurve Switch 5300xl
Series to be wire-speed on all ports simultaneously. The 5300 is the only chassis in its price range that
is wire-speed on all ports simultaneously at Layer 2 or Layer 3.
