"The web" IS NOT "the Internet"!

I'm confused. Where is the web mentioned?

Larry Sheldon said...

(Moderation must be one--I explained that the quoted phrases are all artifacts of a browser interaction with a world wide web site).

WWW interactions use the protocols http and https.

You would never see them in DNS, FTP, smtp (except as baggage), dhcp, icmp, or a host of other protocol interactions.

http and https are quite recent additions to the traffic.

I'll have watch NANOG for a breakdown of network raffic--I don't know what the dominant the is (which would depend on just where you looked).

ARP and icmp might dominate near the edges, with smpt high on the list. Our in the middle bgp might be top, but again I'll bet smtp is near the top.
