73 calculators online
  New calculla released ! Please go to calculla.com for the calculla v2. It's better, faster, more beautiful, redone for you in most modern technologies.
  Two cars related tables released today: Tire codes - speed ratings and Tire codes - load index
  This time 3 new calculators for fractions: Fractions: adding and subtracting, Fractions: 4 operations and Fractions: inverse (reciprocal). Each of them shows all sub-steps needed to compute common denominators, create improper fraction (if needed), reduce the fraction etc.

MTU table
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) values assigned to given network type.
Some facts

  • MTU is a maximum number of payload bytes in datagram.
  • MTU determines maximum datagram size, which can be transmitted without fragmentation. Attempt to send more data than defined MTU number, causes division of the original message into smaller pieces. Size of each piece is less or equal to MTU.
  • Greater MTU values allow to use bandwith more efficiently (less overhead), but causes network to be less resistant to transmit errors. This is why optimal MTU depends on environment and network conditions.
  • MTU value range (min/max) is often defined by the protocol being used. For example: The typical Ethernet Frame payload valid size is 46 - 1500 bytes (octets).
