[USRP-users] Data rate using usrp and grc

Hello Koyel

I think using a 10gbps nic card, a processor with 3.6GHz clockspeed, DDR4 RAM with an nvme ssd or ssd should be fine.

Hi Marcus,

I don’t know what system features would ensure a 6 gbps continuous data reception and storage from usrp. I only know we have 10 gbps servers so I was asking if that is not enough to ensure that data rate or something more is needed. I was expecting the system requirements to be outlined for the mentioned data rate.

Regards,
Koyel

Hi Koyel,

I'm sorry if I'm repeating myself. I see this seems hard to believe, but:

we really can't tell you. We don't know how well your system performs.

Best regards,
Marcus

Will there be packet drops if USRP source is set at 32 bit complex float in grc when receiving at 100 MSPS each from two channels? That makes 2*100e6*64 (32 bit I and 32 bit Q) = 12800e6 or 12.8 gbps. I am unable to set usrp source block in grc to 16 bit complex as then the usrp source block is not compatible with file sink which doesn’t have option for 16 bit complex. Please help
