on one of our collections servers, we are averaging just under 400 KB/s network bandwith utilization, with just 45 users. this is obviously using a gigabit adapter and ulaw - i never realized how much bandwidth ulaw uses until now.
on one of our other boxes, with almost 60 users, we’re averaging under 200 KB/s with GSM, with very little quality loss (to me, anyway).
there isn’t a point to this post, other than to demonstrate how quickly bandwidth is consumed on a larger system…i’d be interested in hearing what kind of numbers you guys are seeing on your systems.
(we use bmg-ng to monitor the interfaces live)
