Average Size of an RSS/Feed file, for Data Storage and Bandwidth Calculation

2009-10-26T21:43:58Z

Doing a back of the envelope calculation to determine network bandwidth and data storage needed to monitor approx 10,00,000 feeds every 20 minutes.

Any idea what could be the average size of an rss file ?

I remember reading somewhere the guys from technorati revealing the avg size of an rss file.

If feeds are served properly, you don't need to download them in order to check for changes.

Just send appropriate If-Modified-Since or If-None-Match header, and if feed hasn't changed, you'll receive only HTTP status 304 response, with no body.
