SELECT NTH(50, quantiles(numbytes)) median, NTH(75, quantiles(numbytes)) seventy_fifth, NTH(90, quantiles(numbytes)) ninetieth, NTH(95, quantiles(numbytes)) ninety_fifth FROM ( SELECT respCookieLen as numbytes FROM [httparchive:runs.latest_requests] WHERE firsthtml = true )
Based on the July 1 2013 crawl:
Not as big as I feared. But there are still some big ones out there:
select respCookieLen, pageid, url from httparchive:runs.latest_requests where firsthtml=true order by respCookieLen desc limit 10
My heart skipped a beat when I initially thought the 10th largest cookie was from “google.com”. Then I looked closer.
