I'm setting up a public mirror (ftp only so far) on one of our servers 
and was wondering what kind of bandwidth usage to plan for. We have 
about 100M overall at this site, but I want to make sure that I can 
limit the rate appropriately. I had planned on doing this using the ftp 
server's configuration (vsftpd).

Anyone have any notes on a good ballpark figure for maximum number of 
connections and maximum bandwidth per connection? Any horror stories, 
grim warnings or sage advice appreciated.
