I hope I'm in the right stackexchange subsite (can't seem to find a networking related subsite..).
I've got 2 questions concerning the CSMA/CD network protocol:
Before sending some (say 5) messages over the bus, is there some kind of formula how long it will take to transmit all messages succesfully (so without collisions)? Or is the time unknown when starting to transmit?
If (1) is no -> Is it possible to calculate the maximum time of the transmitting? So for example -> 'it'll take max. 10ms before all the messages are transmitted succesfully'.
I hope my questions are clear to you! If not, I'm glad to clearify when needed!
Thanks for your time!
