Lets suppose that I have a server connected to a public 100mbps network switch. This server serves a webpage of 1mbps for example. So, how do I estimate the connection's saturation point?
Is this correct: 100mbps/1mb (page size) = 100 per sec. Which means, the saturation point is 100 simultaneous connections to the server at an instant (asking for 1mb each)??
That's one part of the question. Now lets consider a real-life example. A blog, for example thenextweb.com, serves it's static content (1520KB) via a CDN. So, what remains is the dynamically generated HTML (960KB), which should be served by the server itself.
Considering that the blog receives 50 million pageviews a month (equals to 20 pageviews per sec) and 70 page views per second during peak traffic periods, do you think the website will ever slow down due to the 100mbps connection?
EDIT NOTE: Lets only think that they are on a single web server and using no browser caching. Com'on, thenextweb is only a example. Just, please consider only what I've listed. I want to know if my theory/calculation/estimate is right.
