latency

listen to the pronunciation of latency
Englisch - Englisch
The delay between a stimulus and the response it triggers in an organism
A delay, a period between the initiation of something and the occurrence
the state of being dormant
Latency is the amount of time it takes for a data packet (i e , a unit of data) to move across a network connection Latency and bandwidth are the two factors that determine the speed of your connection Back to Top
The delay incurred by a switching or bridging device between receiving the frame and forwarding the frame
In networking, latency and bandwidth are the two factors that determine the speed of your connection Latency is the time it takes for a data packet to move across a network connection
Broadly, a term used to describe a delay in transmitting data between two computers Latency is the time take to transfer a packet of information from one point to another, and is often cited as one of the reasons for the sluggish performance of Internet connections
The time between initiating a request for data and the beginning of the actual data transfer Network latency is the delay introduced when a packet is momentarily stored, analyzed and then forwarded
The time taken to service a request or deliver a message which is independent of the size or nature of the operation The latency of a message passing system is the minimum time to deliver a message, even one of zero length that does not have to leave the source processor The latency of a file system is the time required to decode and execute a null operation
The time interval between a network station seeking access to a transmission channel and that access being granted or received
n The amount of time that passes before something starts to happen An important consideration in performance evaluation, where high throughput computer devices often postpone tranfers due to protocol transaction overhead, contention and other factors
The state or quality of being latent
The amount delay in the delivery of data through a network or network device
The amount of time in nanoseconds (often measured in clock cycles) between a request to read the memory, and when it is actually output SDRAMs are typically referred to as CL2 or CL3, with CL2 parts being faster
A measure of the temporal delay Typically, in xDSL, latency refers to the delay in time between the sending of a unit of data at the originating end of a connection and the reception of that unit at the destination end
The time that elapses between issuing a request for data, and actually starting the data transfer In a hard disk, this translates into the time it takes to position the disk's read/write head and rotate the disk so that the required sector or cluster is under the head Latency is just one of many factors that influence disk access speeds
(n ) The time taken to service a request or deliver a message which is independent of the size or nature of the operation The latency of a message passing system is the minimum time to deliver a message, even one of zero length that does not have to leave the source processor; the latency of a file system is the time required to decode and execute a null operation See also startup cost
the state of being not yet evident or active
Time taken to deliver a packet from the source to the receiver Includes propagation delay (the time taken for the electrical or optical signals to travel the distance between the two points) and processing delay Due to the distance to a satellite and back (over 34,000km each way), the latency when communicating via a satellite connection is at least 270 milliseconds, making interactive services difficult, compared to a delay of about 10 milliseconds across Europe via fibre
(computer science) the time it takes for a specific block of data on a data track to rotate around to the read/write head
The delay or time span between the voice being digitalized at the senders Location and then output at the receivers end is the latency of a connection Latency is influenced by the distance the data has to travel, the packet size, the number and delay time of network elements between the terminals and of course the latency generated by the terminals themselves when sending, receiving, encoding, decoding and compensating jitter
(n ) The time lapse between an SBus master's request of the bus and the completed transfer
Time it takes a packet to travel from source to destination Latency and bandwidth define the speed and capacity of a network
the time that elapses between a stimulus and the response to it
Of a computer: the time required to establish communication with a specific storage location, not including transfer time; equals access time less word time
{i} being hidden, being out of sight; latency stage (Psychology); retrieval time (Computers)
The delay time between the end of one communication and the start of another During this time, the processes associated with the communication are hung up and cannot continue Software engineers work to reduce latency to a minimum
The time between transmission and reception of data across a network On the Internet, latency is due to delays in routing equipment, collisions on the network backbone, and congestion in the exchange points between backbone service providers (amongst other things) Latency can lead to unacceptable performance across VPNs, especially for distributed database applications and multimedia protocols
being present but not evident In HIV Disease, the virus is present for years before any symptoms appear During this period of latency, the virus is still active and damaging the immune system
The time taken to start up an operation Typically message latency is the time delay incurred between one processor starting a message send operation, and the recipient processor completing the receive operation Startup latency is the constant commicationn overhead incurred in sending a zero length message Communication networks are often rated in terms of latency and bandwidth Typical values of startup latency: 1 millisec between workstations connected by Ethernet, and 40 microsec with PVM on the Cray T3D MPP computer
With computers - the time lag between a request and the action being performed Latency can reflect network time delays or MIDI and audio playback timing errors See the section on soundcard latency Back
Any delay introduced into the network that prevents packet forwarding at wire speed
Time between the initiation of the data transfer in the sending process and the arrival of the first byte in the receiving process
latence
latency period
Time from exposure to a substance such as beryllium to the onset of a related disease
latency period
The time between when an exposure occurs and when its effects are detectable as an injury or illness
latency period
The time between first exposure to an agent and manifestation or detection of a health effect of interest
latency period
an interval Sleep latency is the interval from "lights out" until sleep begins REM latency is the period from the beginning of sleep to the first appearance of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep
latency period
Time from exposure to a substance to the onset of a disease Example: time from asbestos exposure to development of mesothelioma
latency period
A period of subclinical or inapparent pathologic changes following exposure, ending with the onset of symptoms of chronic disease
latency period
(psychoanalysis) the fourth period (from about age 5 or 6 until puberty) during which sexual interests are supposed to be sublimated into other activities
latency period
stage in child development from approximately age 5 to age 12
latency period
Time that elapses between exposure and the first manifestations of disease or illness
latency period

The time between the start of penetrative vaginal intercourse and male ejaculation inside the vagina
latencies
plural of latency
rotational latency
- The delay between when the controller starts looking for a specific block of data on a track and when that block rotates around to where it can be read by the read/write head On the average, it is half of the time needed for a full rotation (about 8 ms )
rotational latency
The amount of time, in milliseconds, for a disk to rotate to a specific disk sector
rotational latency
The delay time from when a disk drive's read/write head is on-track and when the requested data rotates under it
rotational latency
The delay between when the controller starts looking for a specific block of data on a track and when that block rotates around to where it can be read by the read/write head On average, it is half of the time needed for a full rotation (which depends on the rotational speed, or rpm, of the disk)
rotational latency
(computer science) the time it takes for a specific block of data on a data track to rotate around to the read/write head
