Well i just had a look at the bandwidth my gpu client used when sending results and receiving work (task manager.) It sent 72KB, and received 31KB. I of course shut down all other internet accessing programs before it sent. The comp was using about 1KB bandwidth every 30 seconds before and after this test.
The gpu takes usually 1.5h to complete a WU, so 16times a day X 103KB = 1648KB per day. Thats around 50 megs a month. Of course, I just did this spur of the moment, its not an average of several wu upload/downloads.
Does anyone think 50 megs a month sound about right?
