Quake 3 Aggregate Traffic PPS/Data Rate Relationships

From the Average Data/Packet Per Second Rates graphs (Figures 27 and 28), some formulae for relationships to express the average aggregate packet per second and data rates given the number of players participating in a game were deduced.

A linear model was used to do so. That is:

PPS = L + K(Number of Players)

where L is some base rate and K is an approximate scaling factor.

PPSSC = 20N
PPSCS = 57N - 21

where N = number of clients
