Bandwidth and application session recording file size

Resolution

How much bandwidth Awingu uses and how large the file size of application session recordings is, determines a lot on the use case.

For instance, the bandwidth or file size of a recording will be rather small for a user who uses a typical office application (Microsoft Excel, Word, ...); while it would be on the high end for a user who does a lot of graphical work. 
On average we would assume that the screen recording size would be between 40 to 100mb per hour for a normal workload.

Another important factor is the screen resolution (and number of screens).

Therefore, the below metrics are just an indication.
