How to calculate web site's WAN bandwidt


If you're just talking about a website and visitors on that you could count the number of files on your website then the diskspace your site take up and calculate an average size of one hit.

Now you calculate average number of hits per webpage often.

Multiply hit's per page with hit size and you'll get a size for every page.

Now you need to know number of visitors a day and avg number of pages each visitor visit.

Then you can calculate bandwith.

Formula something like this.

(Total web size/Total files)*(Avg Hits Page)*(Number of pages avg users sees)*(Daily Visitors)/12/3600

In this way you'll get a kb/sec number.
This is minimum bandwith needed for a website.

Now if your companys users also surf through the router only way to get a correct number is by monitoring network traffic for a few weeks and establish a baseline from that.
