In flow control, the timer used is started when the transmission of the packet starts or when the last bit of the packet is transmitted?

Any questions in flow control related to the timer?

Timeout Timer Started just after last bit of data packet being put on transmission media for transmission.

Basically what we understand with last bit, data got divided into Packet's and Packet contains Bit, so even though actually bit transfer in link but they are bundled in packet.

event though we are saying last bit conceptually but actually when packet getting transfer , timeout timer start immediately.
