HELP!!! My server is getting overwhelmed with Bandwidth (Asian Tsunami Videos)


HELP!!! My server is getting overwhelmed with Bandwidth (Asian Tsunami Videos)
My site just got linked from an extremely popular site and it cant take the load.

I configured Mod_Throttle to cap the speed at 900 kBytes per second since I my server is only on a 10MB line.

I put all videos on the /Videos directory, can I just throttle that directory?

This is my mod_throttle code, is it correct?

<IfModule mod_throttle.c>
ThrottlePolicy Speed 900k 1s
<Location /traffic>
SetHandler throttle-me
</Location>
</IfModule>

I don't want the html and pictures throttled is this code correct?




BTW the site is:

Sorry I am not that familiar with it but are you worried about bandwith overage charges or just maxing out your line?

Also don't you think posting the link here wont help any?

Seems to be working, all videos are unavailable.

"Seeing how a lot of sites can't keep up with the bandwidth requirements of hosting"

How about you make them available to people who do contribute ?

I am working on project with other volunteers to give donaters hi-res photos of one of the islands that no longer exist.

datums,

I want to make the videos available to as many people as possible so that they contribute. How can I check if they contributed or not?

I need mirror site to distribute the videos. It's amazing how almost all the sites that are currently hosting the videos are bucking under the load.

Correct, BT is the best way to offset your bandwidth. In fact, it reaches more people that way

Yes I know that torrents are awesome but for some reason less techie people dont like them too much (lasiness factor) and I want as many people to see the videos as possible to scare them into contributing to the charities :-)

Also keep in mind that the filer are only a couple of megabytes in size.

Alot of people from this forum are helping mirror the files and it looks like I might be able to keep up with the bandwidth after all.

If you have some spare bandwidth on your server and want to help mirror some files please download the videos from http://www.asiantsunamivideos.com/index2.html
and contact me with the links.

My server is sending 3 Gigs per howr but a lot of requests are being denied because it's capped at 10 Mb/s.
With the mirrors that I added the problem is being aleviated.

If you don't have too much bandwidth to spare then you can just host 1 fille but unless you have your own dedicated server I do not suggest doing that.
