Bandwidth limitation on the Ethernet Backplane

Goals and Symptoms
What is the specification on the Ethernet Backplane?
Facts and Changes
Causes and Fixes
The maximum throughput is 100 Mbits, full-duplex. So in theory, it's possible to push 100 Mbits in each direction (into the backplane and out of backplane).
However, to protect the backplane, the amount of traffic each module on the backplane can generate (CPU, NOC, etc.) is limited…see the user manual for each module. For instance the limitation is 7.6% for the NOC
