You have to determine the rate of change of the data. How much data do you have and what is the rate of change? The size of incremental backups will give you an indication.

OK.

You're weekly full backup is 100GB. You're daily incremental backup is 3GB, so file rate of change is 3%. You can now estimate your block rate as it will be less than the file rate of change at one third of the file rate of change, so block rate of change is 1%. !5 of 100GB is 1GB. Most of that change occurs over an 8 hour window during production hours, so:

1000MB / 8 hours = 125MB/hr
125MB / 3600 = .03472 MB/second, or 34KB/sec
34KB/sec x 8 = 277Kb/sec (note change from Bytes to bits). If you want to be conservative, change the factor from 8 to 10 to allow for Ethernet and IP overheads.
So, if you have to replicate 1GB per working day, you need a serial link that can handle 277Kb/sec. I would typically increase this number to allow for the peaky nature of replication workloads, and the fact that you can't really purchase a 277Kb serial link. You'd want a 1Mb/sec link at a minimum. This will allow you to maintain the RPO.

The formula scales to any data size.
