We do too - it's just a composite of the 5 minute interval samples taken
at the switch/router.

Hello Fellow NANOG'ers,
I was just thinking about this - tell me if it sounds reasonable? The
company that I work for developed a piece of technology which, through
rate-limit statements, allow customers to buy/sell bandwidth "on
demand". Now, I was thinking: "Why can't we take this technology that
we've tested successfully in a colo environment and adapt it a little
bit for personal/buisness-class ISP's to allow them to bill for the
bandwidth that a customer uses, and only that with the exception of a
base monthly fee (to cover the DSL/T1 loop, e-mail services, support,
etc.) of a few dollars.
Personally, I would like to see a senario where everyone just pays for
what they use - it would be a much better system for allowing people
who don't neccessarily need to get on the Internet at high-speed, get
on high-speed which will not only increase revenue for the ISP's, but
also for the customer who can now use DSL/T1 access in a much more
Questions? Comments? Suggestions?
