    how to check my bandwidth

    Hi all..
    this is my 1st time at wht.
    right now i have dedicated with 10mbp, how to check it wheter it has hit 10mbps?
    my visitors never increase again right now, i am afraid server has pushed to 10mbps, do i need to upgrade it to 100mbps?
    if i upgrade to 100mbps how to limit user bandwidth so each one only has 10kbps??

    Please advice.
    Thanks

    Are we talking several thousand visitors at the same time?

    10mb is an awful lot of visitors...

    I am assuming he has a 10mbit machine and is wondering if he can get that kind of speed... Create a test file and have the WHT crowd download it and you will see if you are reaching that speed. Another way (better way for that matter) would be to setup trafffic monitoring with something like rrdtool, mrtg, or rtg and it will tell you your usuage. Some providers have this setup for you already (layered tech for example).

    If you were to upgrade to a 100mbit line, and waned to limit peopl to 10kilobytes/second you could do so with mod_throttle (apache module) quite easily.

    1 mbit is like 120 kbps
    10 mbit is about 1 Megabyte per sec. If you have have a 10 mbit server and the graph only reaches that as a cap and can not exceed that line, then you should upgrade.

    As far as limiting user bandwidth goes... what exactly do you mean? What are you using the server for? Who are your customer and what are they using the server for? You can limit bandwidth in particular appliations such as HTTP, FTP, etc. But as far as limiting bandwidth on a per user basis?! Is this a linux server or windows?

    10mbit = 1.25MB/s so you may think about seeing if you can get 2 10mbit for cheaper or if its cost effective you can upgrade to 100mbit. With 100mbit (12.5MB/s) you should not reach the maximum unless your going server to server plus you would probably need a SCSI HDD.

    I prefer to have a server with 2000 Gb included per month and be able to peak to 50mb/sec if I needed. It's my opinion!

    thanks for all answers..
    it's better for me to get 2000gb /100mbps.
    i found ezzi offers 4000gb 2000out/2000in so it means i only have 2000gb for outcome traffic??

    Thanks in advance

    Install bwm-ng and mrtg on the server, they will give you good usage stats.
