I think I heard tje 50% rule-of-thumb originally at a Network General (now
Sniffer Technologies) sniffer class. It sounds good and it makes logical
sense. If the "average" utilization is 50% that means that there are
probably packets that get stuck waiting in line to go down the pike
(buffered in a queue). For applications that are delay-sensitive, queued
packets are a BAD THING.
Other than that, I cannot provide a published source of that figure.
