Definitions for "Bursty"
A communications term describing data transmission that occurs in uneven spurts.
Data transmission across a communications network is described as a 'bursty' if, rather than a steady flow of data, periods of inactivity are followed by a big burst of traffic. Modern networks can be designed to handle this pattern of traffic in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Computer activity which generates bursts of high-speed data traffic, rather than constant data traffic.
