Wakes latencies unknown,
Whose impulse may precipitate
A life-long leap. The hour was late,
And there was the Jersey boat with its funnel agroan.

In science:

On the other hand, we also observe that past a moderate generation size (∼ 50 − 100 coded packets for N = 1000), the decrease in decoding latency becomes slower by further increasing the encoding/decoding complexity.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
Recall that we measure throughput by decoding latency (Section II-F).
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
In both cases the decoding latency would increase if we neglected the effect of overlaps during the decoding process.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
If we make use of the overlap in decoding, on the other hand, the larger the overlap size, the more help the generations can lend to each other in decoding and, hence, reducing the decoding latency.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
User-perceived performance, on the other hand, describes the impact of information flow on the network to the user. Latency and completion time are two sample measures in this category. Our approach primarily combines the network performance with user-perceived performance.
