AD Replication Traffic.  How much is there?

If no changes have been made to AD how much traffic is generated with the regular chatter of domain controllers?  Also, if I make a change, does just the change replicate or does it replicate more than just the change?  I'm nearly sure it replicates just the change but just want to be 100% sure.

In brief, the reason I ask is that we have a client that wants to have nearly immediate (or as nearly as possible) AD replication.  However, they are a multi-site single domain and as such are connected via various speed WAN links.  I know how much bandwidth they have, and as long as they have plenty compaired to the extra load of configuring them as a single site, I may just do that to increase their speed.  Or, at the very least I can reduce the default cross site replication time.

The question is rather urgent thus the high point value.

Thanks for you help,

Brian

I'm sorry I havn't gotten back to this yet.  This is actually one of multiple problems at this client.

I haven't forgotten.  I just want to make sure the comments work before I award points.
