hello,


an example from my computer running the dnetc-client.
it's an athlon/650


[Aug 01 18:13:49 UTC] The keyserver says: "Cow told me to change this proxy message so I did (ivo/1)"
[Aug 01 18:13:55 UTC] Retrieved 51 RC5 packets (321 work units) from server
[Aug 01 18:14:05 UTC] Sent 82 RC5 packets (652 work units) to server


16 sec ca. 22kb -> 1408 bytes/s

24 sec ca. 26kb -> 1110 bytes/s


so let's do some math.


the client needs ~25 seconds per day for update.
in this time the client will transfer ~30kb.
now we have 500 computers.


NO, that's not 500*25 seconds, thats 500*30kb, period.


the bandwith is also 15000kb/25s = 600kb/s (for about 25 seconds per day)


and now it's going to be exciting.


$415,951.49 in bandwith charges, 59 cents per second.


$415,951.49 / 0.59 = 705002,5254237 seconds


that's 28200 days a 25 seconds


that's 77 years !!!


ps: How old is the Georgia Attorney General ???
