Hi Alan, Obviously there are many variables that come into play..keep in mind that the queue can offset some of the burstiness associated with the data i.e. model output, and you can modify the size of your queue, so this gives some leeway. The IDD propogates the NWSTG which is broadcast on a T1, so that would be your upper limit. A T1 will deliver ~540 MB/Hour. In looking at your latencies from rtstats, you seem to be humming along nicely currently. What are you planning on adding to your request? I do not know if this is enough info for you to base a decision on, please let me know what/if any other specifics you may need. Thank you, -Jeff ____________________________ _____________________ Jeff Weber address@hidden Unidata Support PH:303-497-8676 COMET Case Study Library FX:303-497-8690 University Corp for Atmospheric Research 3300 Mitchell Ln http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/jweber Boulder,Co 80307-3000 ________________________________________ ______________________ On Thu, 14 Nov 2002, Anderson, Alan C. wrote: > > Hi Jeff > > Our department has been asked about our needs for bandwidth relating > to our internet access.
