Request for some "typical" numbers for benchmarking with realistic data:

In the situation where an unloaded Ethernet-like access LAN is used to 
connect to the Internet over a T1 or greater link to the Internet, does 
anyone know of "typical" traffic statistics, by application?  Ideally, I'd 
like a table like the following, with ranges, where the server and Internet 
are not congested (good case, not average or worst case).

           IP d'grams/Bytes client->gateway   IP d'grams/Bytes gateway->client
                    per second                   per second
