    Question about rackshack 10mbps deal

    Well I'm looking around for a dedicated server that can puch alot of data transfere each month.

    I came across rackshacks 10mpbs deal, my question is: Is it really possible for a Celeron 1.3 GHz with 512 in ram to use that bandwidth? I will be mainly hosting wmv files around 1mb a piece so it's the file downloads that will take up the bandwidth.`

    How many gigs of data transfere can i expect to get from that kind of deal?

    Plus do you know of any other places that sell alot of data transfere cheap 3000gig+ a month.

    I think they have limit 400GB/mo anyway on 10mbps deal?

    ps. for that cheap bandwidth you may look into deals from companies that use Cogent bandwidth.....

    Hey is it the 10 Mb/s ( True - cogent backbone ) you will get like 3.330 Gb/s per month.. if you make than 1-2 MB files will be a good choce if you are looking to fill up that baby


    I think they have limit 400GB/mo anyway on 10mbps deal?
    How can a person it +800 post give this bad info ? The 400Gb/s a mo are the other servers there are two servers it the 10MB/s a celeron and a pentium 3 1.0 Gz all the other server in RS it's 400 Gb true a 100 MB/s cap. network.

    ps. for that cheap bandwidth you may look into deals from companies that use Cogent bandwidth
    10 mb/s RS server it's only true congent backbones.. only there other server ( all server except 10MB/s ) good true there other backbone providers..


    Hope i helped you

    We have a Pentium III 933MHz which pushes between 20-30Mbps per month. So yes, it is possible.

    if its running thttpd instead of apache it could push that much with 512 easy, imho.

    yeah more ram would be adviseable. it can saturate the 10 mbps with simple file serving. esp if the number of files is limited, it will just cache the popular ones. there is no 400gb cap on the 10mbps deal, not sure where that came from but we all have off days and 10mbps = 3.356 ish Terabytes a month .however you may want to wait for the p4 10mbps deals.

    thttpd ?
    where's the difference, the advantages and the disadvantages compared to apache?
    as i'm running into troubles on my
    p3 1ghz with 512mb ram, 1gb swap, and up to 450 apache processes running ... (though there's also mysql running, which is eating up much of the RAM ...)
    and i'm searching for some config tweaking or sth.
    any hints?

    greets,

    thttpd is perfect for file serving video clips etc. Uses hardly any ram compared to apache, and cpu usage is the same way.

    The server has 1GB of RAM, however, only utilizes between 256 and 512. This server is doing video streaming.

    thttpd uses a different model. apache forks (or pre-forks) children to deal with requests, whereas thttpd uses non-blocking io (select) to handle requests within one process. the latter model is advantageous for everything except php - since there is only one thread (the main process) and the php module runs within it, all php calls block (only one php call can be processed at a time).

    if you are experiencing high loads and high memory consumption with apache, try using thttpd to serve your static content. we are currently using it to successfully serve images as part of our media archive specialty solution - it does an amazing amount of requests per second and everyone seems very pleased with its performance.

    good luck,
    paul

    10 Mb/s on a P4 ? hmmmm... cold be a nicer plan like 15-20 MB/s ?

    lol 20mbit would be a bit expensive,bandwidth costs alot thats a stupid amount lol plus if you want to keep bandwidth per server in a decent ratio with the hdd space.
    20mb/sec would run to at least 600 dollars a month at cost from cogent. god knows what it would be bgp4 multihomed from decent providers.

    you could check out the nocster 10mbps deals.

    http://www.nocster.net/10mbps.shtml

    probably a bit more expensive , but as far as I know their 10mbps deals are cogentco & sprint , not just cogentco.

    They also have cheap scsi deals :-)
    Also no 1gb ram limit like at rackshack , u can add as much ram as your server can handle.
    God save me from my friends, I can protect myself from my enemies

    rackshack i believe can run to 1.5gb on some machines, our xp certainly can and i believe the new p4s can also.

    its also a hell of a lot of eggs in one basket, theres a lot to be said for the chain of thought that goes something like, that much bandwidth is either dynamic or static, dynamic would push server loads very high, leaving you better off having many servers, static would tend to suggest filesharing for that much or at least make it easier to ditribute it over several servers using roundrobin dns, a few 400gb servers is a far better idea, either way you get redundancy or lower server loads.

    Why are you going with RS?

    FDCservers.net

    Much better prices, Yipes bandwidth. You don't even need the 10mbps deal. I'm on a shared 100mbps and I'm transferring at over 20mbps.

    Perhaps a search on FDCserver on the forum archive would answer why RS would be better than FDCserver (as of now).

    It's good that they have Yipes bandwidth now. However, given their history of support and network connectivity, it would be wise to wait until they stable down.

    I'm an FDC client. I love their service. Nobody matches their prices. BANDWIDTH IS UNMETERED. My site serves big files, so I need a lot of bandwidth. You might not.

    If you could max out a 10Mbps connection 60/60/24/31 at 10Mbps you could theoretically transfer more than 3 terabytes a month, but this would be impossible to achieve due to the overhead on ethernet and the fact that you would need constant requests on your server.

    Most dedicated hosts offer 100Mbps connections and charge by GB of transfer. This is better if you want your site(s) to be able to handle large spikes in traffic, since a 10 Mbps connection will be throttled and can become saturated (and users turned away, etc.)

    10 Mbps is basically for people who want a lot of cheap bandwidth, and want to be able to control their bandwidth to make sure they don't get charged for huge transfer overages.

    If file serving is your thing then offload the handling of it to vsftpd and ease the load on your web server...

    Tons of configurable options to make your life easier - check it out.

    Redhat.com / gnu.org use it for their ftp daemon.

    probably a bit more expensive , but as far as I know their 10mbps deals are cogentco & sprint , not just cogentco.
    Right now, it uses all of Burst.net's providers, but soon, it will only use Sprint, Cogent, and another provider (not detirmined yet), but Level3 and a few others are possibilities.
