I got some data from wireshark for the conversation between the client (B) and the server (A) and I am trying to do some analysis as far as the bandwidth consumption is concerned.

The WAN link on the client side is a T1 and the link on the server side is 3MB. I have Wireshark captured on both ends.

Here it goes... This is the data from the statistic->conversation in Wireshark on the server side (3MB link). I got the A->B as 200,000 bps (0.19073 Mbps) and B->A as 50,000bps.

Questions: - Is it valid to say that the traffic from A->B (outbound of the gateway) takes ~7% (which is (0.19073/3)*100) of the 3MB? - Is it valid to say that the traffic from B->A (inbound of the gateway) takes 1.7% of the 3MB?

Yes, it 'takes' (actually it uses) 7% of the line, but only if the line offers 3 Mbit/s outbound bandwidth.

  • Is it valid to say that the traffic from B->A (inbound of the gateway) takes 1.7% of the 3MB?

Yes, it 'takes' (actually it uses) 1.7% of the line, but only if the line offers 3 Mbit/s inbound bandwidth.
