Give me 1000GB or 2000GB and that's my limit that I'll try and not go over. Pretty simple.
However, I'm now dealing with a provider that has me really confused. This company is charging us based on 95th percentile and we're now being asked to commit to 8.5 MBPS while the server doesn't even go over 1500GB monthly bandwidth limit.
Is this correct:
- We're not using tons of bandwidth but we do have large bursts
- The company is ultimately charging you for the bursts
Does anyone know if it is possible to monitor bandwidth for individual virtual environments within Hyper-V? I'm looking for an economical way of doing this, not through System Center. we're looking to provision a few Windows virtual environments over the next few weeks and want to see if there is an alternative to Parallels Virtuozzo.
I am not too used to working with having to monitoring bandwidth through windows itself, but the provider doesn't provide graphs from the switch.
I tried installing MRTG on windows but got tired after trying for two hours. I really just need a program that can monitor the bandwidth and calculate the 95% usage but I cannot seem to find that anywhere!
I have a few boxes on a special setup in a rack that I want to monitor bandwidth usage on for a while. There really isn't a way at the moment to do it switch level. Some of the servers have cPanel, some are just straight Linux (CentOS). I have seen where you can setup iptables to measure/monitor bandwidth, any other easy and effective suggestions for doing this?
What's the best solution web-based that I can install on a server to monitor a group of servers, services, bandwidth etc.. I'm thinking of offering a service where for a monthly price we'll monitor your server(s) and notify the data center or client of outages. So I'm looking for something that I can create clients then under them enter servers and items to monitor. Kinda like a NOC monitoring solution?
I currently use debian and have multiple (5+) ip address all assigned for a different purpose and usage. My issue is that i need the ability to accurately monitor the traffic being generated (and potentially graph via mrtg) additionally, I want the ability to enforce priority and restrictions per ip address.
Whilst on the subject I also have an openvpn setup which i want the ability to rate limit each user....
spend too much time trying to figure this out so now i'm asking for some help! More than happy to consider offers ($) for someone to do it for me...
I have a dedicated server and i want to monitoring a lot of thing.
First; there is ~110 web site account. Here is i want to know;
* How can i monitor over all visitors for accounts ? * How can i find the account that causing hig load. I try mytop for mysql but i can't use it effectively. * How can i find which php files running slow/causing load. If possible i want to know which account using how much cpu resource.
And please me show me a route for things like these.
I have been tasked with researching the available options in software that monitor network route paths out from our network that shows latencies and packet loss, etc. We would like real time graphing of current route utilizations so we can notice and make changes on the fly should routes to China see increased latency over a certain backbone (Level(3) or Global Crossing). We need something more in-depth than Netflow as we need to watch our current outgoing paths that our customers are using.
I have a Softlayer Windows 2003 server and it comes with two Network cards. I was wondering how I can create a VPN to the server and then access internet from there on. Our local ISP has blocked Skype and I need to VPN into myu SL server to use it.
How will I assign the bandwidth for a VE in virtuozzo power panel. I could not find any fileds that corresponds to bandwidth in the steps during creation. I could find how to restrict memory(vmguarpages) and disk space. But where will I assign the bandwidth that a VE can use.
Now I keep very close tabs on my site stats. Just tonight one of my sites suddenly showed 167gb for "traffic not viewed".
That was a jump from 5gb over the course of a day.
That was done in 604877 pages and 607138 hits.
Can someone explain to me what "traffic not viewed" actually is within AWSTATS.
Next I located where most of the bw went and it appears to be http code 206 showing 159gb. My latest visitor report for the addon domain only showed one ip with an odd couple direct requests. The referring site was my own cpanel but registered to a ip in India.
How can i locate where the leak is, latest visitors isn't being much help, I have since denied the india ip which i suspect was the problem maker. How can I prevent instances such as this in the future? Being a streaming video site I have the bw to spare but it is still a bit un-nerving. Now on top of everything Virtuozzo isn't showing anything of the sort, what do i believe?
I like the LSN server company and have a server there that I plan to keep forever, they do a great job just that I am confused about their bandwidth. Also the prices aren’t exact!
Just wondering what everyone else here thinks about this:
So... LSN are doing a Q9300 server at the moment for $130 “ish” with 2TB of bandwidth. Now let’s say someone wants an extra 0.5TB of bandwidth they pay around $50 for it and if they want 1TB they pay about $95.
So you buy a server for $130 and get 2TB of bandwidth and also the costs of the hardware, space, power is covered for the hardware. Yet they charge nearly the same price for 1TB extra to a single server, which uses no extra space, hardware or power. Another thing is they charge $25 server to pool the bandwidth between your servers.
So as you can see from the above you can get twice the space, RAM, CPU and Power for only $10 more? Surely it costs them more than the $10?
Also my final point is LSN have a private network, that is not bandwidth monitored and your servers can use, I asked LSN if you could tunnel the traffic from one server to another, their answer was “yes if you have the technical knowledge to do so”... Well that would get rid of the $50 pooling costs... making it actually alot cheaper to get two servers.
I'm looking to get a VPS offshore (please look at my other threads/posts to learn why) primarily for email for 4 or 5 domain names (most of which I'd download to my desktop but would also backup on the server) as well as perhaps to run a virtual desktop through and/or store some data.
For ease of use (for ME at least), I'd install (or have installed) a CP and probably run Centos 5 or Debian as the OS on the VPS. I won't be running websites from the VPS and I'll be the only user.
I've seen offers of all types related to bandwidth but, in some countries, bandwidth is expensive and they offer little as a result. How do I determine how much bandwidth I need for what I want to do and how do I know what's too little?
I have a server with a 10Mbps connection. Is there a way to limit the connection of my VPSs?
Lets say I have 10 VPS on that server, is there a way to limit them to 1Mbps each? Or do something like: VPS_01 = 0.5Mbps VPS_02 = 0.5Mbps VPS_03 = 0.5Mbps VPS_04 = 0.5Mbps VPS_05 = 1Mbps VPS_06 = 1Mbps VPS_07 = 1Mbps VPS_08 = 1Mbps VPS_09 = 2Mbps VPS_10 = 2Mbps
And/Or is there a way to monitor the data transfer of each VPS (how many GB/month)?
I've found a colocation company that gives me as the default 1.544Mbps as the initial bandwidth. I think this is OK for me most of the time, the problem is their bandwidth isn't really 'burstable', and If I want to expand to more bandwidth, my options are something like buying another T1's worth muxed in for $250.
Is this strange? Old-fashioned? Should I be worried about this?
