About Burstable Bandwidth and 95th Percentile
WebCentrix monitors bandwidth usage in realtime via SNMP and Cacti. Bandwidth is measured (or sampled) from various servers and recorded in a log file. In most cases this is done every 5 minutes. At the end of the month, the samples are sorted from highest to lowest, and the top 5% (which equal to approximately 36 hours of a 30-day billing cycle) of data is thrown away. The next highest measurement becomes the 'billable utilization' for the month. Visit the Wikipedia page on Burstable Bandwidth for more details.
