To calculate high volume of internet traffic - do I combine HTTP posts from both client to server, plus server to client?
Posted on 2009-02-16
I'm tasked to review a high volume of internet activity in a one week time period and I am not well versed in this topic. I am focusing today on one client application installed on thousands of the customer's systems and it makes a daily call to a 3rd party server.
The average call includes:
- 775 Packets
- 300 HTTP POSTs from Client to the server
- 300 HTTP responses from Server to Client
- 287 Kilobytes of data transfer
Here is my uneducated question: based on the call statistics above, would just one of these average calls account for a total 600 hits of internet traffic to that 3rd party server (300 HTTP posts client to server, plus 300 more server to client)?
