Throughput in NSA 5G

Dear Brothers,
I have question about the values of the throughput in NSA 5G.
It won’t show values of MAC layer throughput in the section of 5G (as from DT drive for example) right but it won’t show the true MAC layer throughput as well in LTE cause its part of the TP not all of it.
Only RLC layer TP values will show, right?
And can anyone send some throughput calculation on such a NSA structure?

You can see Throughputs at each layer regardless of LTE or NR in QXDM or QCAT or other tool such as XCAP.
You just need to know where to find it.
Even if it’s a Split bearer where data can come both on LTE and NR the tool should show Throughput levels at each layer.
You can also check Throughput and also the number of bytes at each layer.
UE log processing tools usually have this basic capabilities.

Hi, @Atbarawi.

Reusing the Figure 4.2.2-1 from 3GPP TS 37.340, you may measure throughput for each leg at RLC, MAC and PHY.

Calculation of throughput in NSA is NR RLC Throughput + LTE RLC or you can see App throughput
