This paper surveys various literatures on network performance with main focus on three main issues: its meaning, quantification and measurement. The essence of performance in communication systems is discussed and its meaning explored. Further, we look at relationship between network performance and its characteristics. The weaknesses in literature are disclosed with respect to how performance is conceptualized and applied in networks. The study reveals that there is need to carry out further research to redefine and quantify network performance with intent to get rid of existing misconception and ambiguity.

 

Key words: Network performance, performance characteristics, quantification, measurement.
