It's been under pretty light use. About 20 users. A bunch of DIDs coming
in and some outbound campaigns. A couple hundred calls a day. (we also did
a test for an outbound campaign with 8 telemarketers making 1000s of calls
in a day -- worked great!)
The AMI is based on Ubuntu 8.04. We're using the smallest instance at this
point, so it's $70/mo + bandwidth/storage ~~ maybe $80/mo.
The loadavg is always at 0.00.
