Throughput measures the overall performance of the system. For transaction processing systems, throughput is typically measured in transactions per second (TPS) or transactions per minute (TPM).

Throughput depends on the following factors:
  • The specifications of the host computer
  • The processing overhead in the software
  • The layout of data on disk
  • The degree of parallelism that both hardware and software support
  • The types of transactions being processed
