    About Rackforce

    Yesterday I call tech support and tell them I am getting bad bandwidth(20k a second). He told me it was because I was using all of the ram in my server....... I told him it was a linux server and linux will never release ram it will continue to cache it until it is all gone. He said that wasn't true I believe the exact words is "well you're wrong" ( http://www.linuxvalley.it/encycloped...sag/x1565.html ). Then He said my resources were being heavily utilized

    2:26pm up 20:03, 1 user, load average: 0.20, 0.24, 0.18
    124 processes: 123 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
    CPU states: 0.3% user, 0.9% system, 0.0% nice, 98.6% idle
    Mem: 481088K av, 473756K used, 7332K free, 152K shrd, 74212K buff
    Swap: 2048184K av, 0K used, 2048184K free 190140K cached


    It was a little higher last night but no reason to effect my bandwidth.

    He then claimed it was a problem between me and the server.

    Perhaps the problem lies in the fact that when they sold me the server they said it would be a dedicated 1.5 pipe. Then about two months later they tell me they switched it to a shared 1.5 pipe with an undisclosed amount of other servers on it. Without prior notification. And now someone is sucking up that wee little line.

    This is just a warning for all the people out there that you get what you pay for.

    thanks Abaddon for the warning. i was just about to buy smth on rackforce. their prices for the servers are good, but their network suck.

    they`ve setupped a test server: test.rackforce.com
    ive tried to download 5MB file to my RS box and my average d/l speed was 50Kbps! (100 Kbps was the most)
