Hi Greg,
From my own experience here in Clouvider (UK), you can expect more than 6Mbps of traffic (95 percentle) going through your mirror.

With Kind Regards,

Subject: [CentOS-mirror] Clarification on new mirror reqs

Good day,

I've gotten my company to tentatively agree to hosting a couple mirrors of repositories for software that we use and need to make sure that the requirements for new mirrors at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/CreatePublicMirrors are within our allowances. The portion I'm looking for clarification on is the very last NOTE block at the bottom of the page which states:

"If you have a data cap which is lower than 15 Tb (depending on region), please don't try to add that machine as a mirror."

Is the unit there in teraBITS (little b) or teraBYTES (big b)? I'm not working with a data cap but do have a 95th percentile bandwidth allotment that I must keep mirrors under and if that 15 Tb is representative of the traffic I could expect over a month then 15 Tb of traffic would be right around 6 Mbps and acceptable while 15 TB of traffic would be over my allotment.

Anyone have some bandwidth graphs they can share for their public mirrors?
