I know you're all aware of the deal, and I'm quite aware that they are overselling, but I have to ask this. I've looked at their Resource Usage Policy, and it seems practical that I could use 4-5TB of bandwidth a month without violating their terms with the right tools. There are four main things that stick out here....
- Consume more than 16 MBs of RAM.
- Utilize in excess of 15 seconds of CPU time.
- Simultaneous Apache connections in excess of 50.
- Number of simultaneous processes should not exceed 5.
I just recently ordered an unmetered 20Mbps server to handle my media downloads, but I'd like a mirror. I would only use it to host files, everything else would be hosted on a dedicated server. So, with that in mind, could one write a script to limit the amount of connections so they didn't exceed 45? Also I'd need to stop all connections if I got close the the bandwidth limit. Considering the price, I figure it's worth a try if it's possible. So... is it?
