Please read my prior statement below, but I must not have been clear. I'll restate: 1.85% of our TOTAL OUTPUT goes to BBN. We estimate that to be between 1030% of BBN's TOTAL INPUT. I have no idea what our total input from BBN is, but I'd imagine it to be the same percentage, but a hell of a lot lower bandwidth (as our aggregate input is extremely low). If I was a larger input from BBN, supposedly we woulldn't be in this mess.. The 1030% range is a pure estimate based upon the number of top web sites that use our network, the relative percentage of input we are with other ISPs, and some guessing work. Hence, the wide range and the "estimate" disclaimer. BBN is the only one that can tell us what percentage of the total input traffic is Exodus. Of course, you should probably take into the consideration the amount of bits dropped into /dev/null because of the rateshaping BBN instituted on the pxs. We did.
