Meaning of LEAF SITE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A machine that merely originates and reads usenet news or mail, and does not relay any third-party traffic. Often uttered in a critical tone; when the ratio of leaf sites to backbone, rib, and other relay sites gets too high, the network tends to develop bottlenecks. Compare backbone site, rib site.
