Well, when you say bandwidth cap are you asking how much total circuit 
capacity I have or how much I'm willing to allocate to the mirror? 
Total capacity is >2Gbps, but 30Mbps is what I was wanting to cap the 
mirror at.  I operated a tier 1 mirror two years ago at a previous 
employer and the transit never exceeded 10Mbps.  That being the case I 
figured a cap of 30Mbps was reasonable.  If that's not the case, then I 
withdraw my request.
