Termination
A method of matching transmission impedance of a bus to eliminate signal reflections from the physical ends of the bus.

Throughput
The number of I/O requests satisfied per unit of time (usually per second).

TPC-C, Tpm-C

The Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) is a standards organization that measures transaction throughput of systems. One of their benchmarks is Tpm-C, which reflects price and performance metrics. TPC-C reflects new order transaction rate, a benchmark for transaction speed. Mylex products have won consistently high TPC-C results.

Transfer Rate
The rate at which data moves between the host computer and storage, input, or output devices, usually expressed as a number of characters per second.
