Latency

  • Amount of time it takes for a packet to travel from point A to point B(or round-trip).
    • ex) Data Latency: time between a query and the result displaying on the screen.

Jitter

  • Variance in latency over time
  • If every packet takes exactly the same amout of time to travle from A to B, there is no jitter.
