how much bandwidth on average would a 30 client server user per month? i have not found an accurate way to measure this, and if anyone has a good way to measure usage i would be greatly helpful.

If I were to guess, depending on what the users are doing and how much actual traffic is on the server, anywhere from 5 to 10 Mb in 30 days. Very little.

this is with servercentral's public interface being unrouted for 6 days, having 30-50 local clients connected.
so i think it would be safe to assume that a standalone ircd with 30 clients running for a month would use less than 10 megs (depending how much these 30 clients talk)
