95th percentile
#StormWall edu

Although customers of Internet service providers (ISPs) purchase communication channels with a precisely defined bandwidth, they are often not charged for the entire port capacity, but only for the bandwidth actually consumed. For ISP providers, this method is known as burstable billing. Moreover, this actually consumed bandwidth is usually taken into account not according to the highest of the indicators recorded during traffic measurements, but by subtracting 5% of the maximum - according to the largest of 95% of the remaining values.

When and in which cases should the asymmetric filtering scheme be preferred, and when should the symmetric one be preferred?

The situation is often aggravated by the fact that the combination of several flaws increases their overall negative impact.
