Enter the number of transactions and the total time (seconds) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Transactions Per Second. 

Transactions Per Second Formula

TPS = TR / T


  • TPS is the Transactions Per Second (transactions/sec)
  • #TR is the number of transactions
  • T is the total time (seconds)

To calculate Transactions Per Second, divide the number of transactions by the time in seconds.

How to Calculate Transactions Per Second?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Transactions Per Second.

  1. First, determine the number of transactions. 
  2. Next, determine the total time (seconds). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TPS = #TR / T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Transactions Per Second.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

number of transactions = 5000

total time (seconds) = 3
