- 95th percentile is the the highest remaining sample after the top 5 percent of samples are discarded. Each sample consists of the average bandwidth for a 5 minute period. So discarding the top 36 hours of bandwidth use for the month, the highest remaining 5 minute average is what you get charged for.

- 95th percentile explanation
20amp feed means 16amp (80% safety rule) max. load.
If you have older models using Xeon Dempsey chips (Xeon 50xx series), chances are they will be drawing 3~4amp each server, then 20amp circuit can support only 4 servers max. if they are woodcrest (51xx series) or clovertown (53xx series) based, then you can prolly fit 5~6 servers for 20amp.
there are plenty of modern energy efficient servers with low-power CPU can draw just around 1amp with pretty good spec. thus, 20amp circuit can easily support 15 servers of this sort or at least 10 of 8-core servers with high spec (loads of RAM and HDDs)!
