Internal traffic levels for report servers

The amount of measurement data that NAM Probes may generate depends on NAM Probe and report server performance limits.

Note: This is part of the Capacity planning guide

Estimated size of NAM Server measurement data

130 MB of raw data every five minutes, compressed to not more than 20 MB every five minutes (600 kbps) before transmission from the NAM Probe to the NAM Server. This calculation depends on the license used; more decodes provide more samples, creating additional files and data to exchange.

Estimated size of ADS measurement data

Applies to DC RUM 2017

300 MB of raw data every five minutes, compressed to not more than 50 MB every five minutes (1.5 Mbps) before transmission from the NAM Probe (old AMD) to the ADS.

These are maximum numbers. Typically, one monitoring device that monitors 500 Mbps of steady traffic produces a 200 kbps stream of data that is consumed by the report server. Full-detail monitoring of every single HTTP hit for a site of the same size may increase this bandwidth to 1.5 Mbps.
