speed of client's access to server; how to determine what bandwidth size do I need
re: how to determine what bandwidth size do I need
I am about to deploy my server for the first time, but am deciding which service to take.
Number of concurrent users will vary from 0 to 1000.
The biggest single webpage is of total size 200kb (includes images already).
Assumption also: my server/website does not do any time-consuming activities between requests, i.e., no search or any significant heavy server processing.
I wish to maintain response time of my website to a maximum of 1 second (1000 milliseconds).
I am considering 2 options:
1) cloud virtual machine, including internet bandwidth
> 10mbps and up; easily scaled up or down
2) my own personal server machine, buy static ip address, and business account internet bandwidth.
> 2mbps and up; expensive
How do I compute how fast or how slow is this 2mbps offer?
I prefer #2 above at this point, whereby I can run my own home server.
I will appreciate any comments.
I'd go for option 1). Option 2) is always a bad idea considering you don't have redundancy for internet, electricity and you don't have a suitable controlled environment to proper host your server.
On the other hand, 2mbps I don't think will be enough and also, you'll need to account for load balancing.
- cPanel, Linux, Virtualization tutorials, guides and more
This is some software which help to know the server speed. It might be useful to get solution. So search them in google and test speed.
