    If you have colo from a provider that says you have a 300GB allowance, then you are usually on a 10Mbit or 100Mbit port.

    Forget about 1-2Mbits because by what you're saying, you don't get billed like that.

    Sound right?
    It's Scott!

    Look.

    You have 300GB of allowed data transfer, but you have a port speed of 100mbps. Once you reach 300GB of data transfer you need to pay overages for extra bandwidth.

    Depends on the type of gaming server, how many players, how often it's filled, etc.

    Anyone knows any good MRTG auto installer that shows like how much total bandwidth I have been using or shows like CPU usage with spike on the graph?

    That's kinda like calling your local NOAA office for a weather report when the information is readily available via local TV news, local news papers, or on a million other websites. The information about bandwidth monitoring is readily available by just doing a few quick searches of these forums.

    Try the key words:

    Ask your provider, your 300 GB of bandwith is your allowed data transfer per month, it appears as though you have a 1-2 meg commit and a burst ability up to 100 meg, yet remember that bursts over your commit do cost an arm and a leg. Definitely ask your provider for the specifics as to what your speeds are, what your burst is and what the burst rate per meg is.
