There has been some discussion about how the Internet will cope with possible increases in traffic. In response to this, I have compared the traffic on the Netnod-IX over the last three Mondays. As we can see below, March 2 and 9 had similar traffic patterns, but March 16 is different. The increase in peak traffic is small, but the total amount of traffic per day is larger.
