Indeed one of my boxes (configured at 1000mbit connectivity) shows.
Estimated active ntp pool clients: 35926
Estimated abusive ntp pool clients: 183
Estimated inactive ntp pool clients: 28551
Total ntp pool clients being tracked: 64477
Current request rate: 0.008 seconds between requests (126.31 req/sec)
Current bandwidth in: 9.374 KBytes/s 74.996 Kbits/s
Current bandwidth in: 23.173 GB/month 185.384 Gb/month
Peak traffic goes as high at 180 requests per second - this box has only
been online three weeks and I expect traffic to rise to closer to 50,000
active clients over the next couple of months.
