I recently purchased a new Dedi server, and got 100 MBPS Uplink. Now, I'm uploading 16GB size of files into this server, and I have a suspicious feeling that this upload speed is not what they told me. For the very 1st day, I opened a ticket and they said that they upgraded it to 100 mbps. I saw this speed was faster immediately. On 2nd day, it went down to around same slow speed before. Since then, I kept opening a new ticket and they said it was done, or sometimes I am under DDos attack..? What? I don't even have the site up yet! How come there is DDos attack?
Anyway, today I was told that I'm getting billed for this 100 mbps uplink, because it's a new service. What a crazy thing going on here... I am so tired of this ticket game and just don't understand why they don't commit what they told me initially.
Can anyone please tell me how I can verify and prove that I am having this 100 MBPS Uplink speed? The only thing I can tell with my eyes is that I can see those FTP upload progress bar. When it's very fast to upload one file, I assume that I have right speed.
But is there any tool or command that I can execute on the server shell, and tell them what I get as a proof?
I am curious if anyone knows what 1and1.com's uplink speed is for their shared accounts? A shared developer account get's 3TB of bandwidth. But I am wondering what type of bandwidth that is. How fast is it?
ive got a one of my personal sites - (a fairly mysql heavy chat community that works on mobile phones aswell) and its running on a cheap dedicated server
the specs of the server at the moment are -
celeron 2.0GHz 512mb ram 120gb ide disk 1500gb bandwidth linux centos 4 no control panel
now i never come close to using my bandwidth so thats fine. but ive noticed when i had around 30 members online last night the server load spiked at about 3.5 so im wondering if anyone can suggest what would be the best thing to upgrade to reduce load.
im currently running apache serving the dynamic files and lighttpd hosting images on a different port. using php 4.4.7 with eaccellerator. mod_gzip is enabled in apache due to a need to reduce the size of pages as much as possible.
BURSTNET Network Maintenance Advisory - Saturday, September 20th, 2008 - 2AM-4AM EST WINDOW
BurstNET™ Network Engineering will be performing maintenance in our Scranton facility during the hours of 2AM and 4AM EST on Saturday, September 20th, 2008. At this time, BurstNET™ Network Engineering will be performing a significant upgrade/replacement of our existing network infrastructure. This upgrade will involve removing/replacing our older/out-dated core Cisco™ GSR & Extreme Summit™ routing/switching equipment, with newer state-of-the-art Cisco™ 6500-series routing/switching equipment, and implementing a new network design---allowing for easier upgrade, higher fault-tolerance, additional capacity, and extra redundancy.
This maintenance will be service affecting, however, we expect the overall network downtime to be 30 minutes or less, during the 2-hour maintenance window, with the majority of that occurring at the start of the work...as equipment and cabling is changed. There will also be momentary periods of higher than normal latency while circuits are re-routed, BGP updated/reloaded, and cabling switched, throughout the 2-hour maintenance window. Proper planning, configuration, and testing has been completed in advance of this maintenance period, in order to minimize as much as possible the overall time that will be service affecting.
This maintenance is necessary in order for further growth of the BurstNET™ network, as well as to implement additional redundancy into the network. This should also help resolve any latency and packet loss issues our clientele may have been experiencing in recent weeks. BurstNET™ has recently hired new Network Engineering staff, and this is the first step in several upgrades/modifications they will be making to the BurstNET™ network over the next 60-90 days, to expand reliability, increase capacity, install further redundancy, and increase performance network-wide.
We thank you for your patience and understanding with this necessary maintenance, as well as for your continued business!
Sounds like a pretty major upgrade (they've been upgrading a lot recently). Here's to more uptime and redundancy at BurstNET!
Lastly, a quick point to the army of Burst-haters out there: go check outages, BurstNET has had two great months for us (99.9%+ uptime). Stop hating .
On used equipment (for example, 6509s), is there any possibility of getting IOS upgrades from Cisco? Is there any sort of re-certification process? My only concern with used equipment is that often times the firmware is years old.
it looks like FDC is taking more pain than usual in terms of network upgrade, i see the network seems unstable till 5am and even now the sessions are getting lost, once in a while like once a hr, anyway this is not the reason i am writing this, but when did comcast become transit provider, i did a trace to UK for example and i see trace going through comcast and then hopping onto tiscali/level3, it looks to me like, comcast could be trying to even out (1:1) it;s carriers so that they get all inbound for free sort of and it;s upstream selling as a transit make money there. sort of, just a surprise to me at this point

I am a host reseller and the parent company is upgrading their servers to PHP5. This may break some of my clients' sites (OSCommerce, Zen). Should we fix those sites for free or should my clients pay for the upgrade?
I'm not much of a co-location expert as we do not own our own equipment but a customer we help from time to time is asking me about this. They have a cabinet at theplanet and only a pair of redundant 100mbit uplinks coming into their cisco 2924 they rent from theplanet. Theplanet wants $350/mo along with $350 setup for a pair of redundant gigabit uplinks. Then another $225/mo for a Cisco Catalyst 2960G.
Does this at all seem reasonable to anyone? The switch can just be purchased so it's not that big of a deal. The uplink cost cannot be avoided though. If it's not reasonable obviously they can go back to their account manager to discuss it but I don't know what you'd expect to pay in Dallas for that.
Also before anyone suggests any other provider not an option. Last time they looked around theplanet was the only provider in dallas capable of handling the attacks. Others would just null route the IP's rather than trying to mitigate the attacks. So no point in making suggestions as it's been explored in the past.
I was wondering how I would go about ensuring my kernel is up to date on my vps. I am running centos and I have cpanel, so I am not sure if there is anything special that has to be done or avoided when running cpanel.
Well i need for a week some provider who can setup a spare server/vps with 1000gps uplink , to maybe convince my college to get in contract and get better providers, instead of hosting the college site on our in-house machines. Since the loading speed of site is awful ! So am thinking of trying out for only a week the machine from that provider, and if am able to convince the department to maybe get into some contract with me (who in turn will be than using that provider for getting the server).
So if anyone around wht knows someone who has spare box for a week with 1000mbps uplink would be great.
Please note, no mysql is required, just simple apache, and no traffic, just 1 or 10 hits in the entire week.
I was told that there are some companies out there that provide universities free hosting, so if anyone is aware of such company do let me know please.
Like for example, recently talked to liquidweb. They have a 100mbs uplink port on their servers, but they only let you use 30% of it. But you can upgrade at anytime. Is that normal for hosts to do that?
Simple... new Plesk 12 includes this fancy feature to tell me which Wordpress plugins and themes need updating (because I obviously can't do this myself). But maybe I don't want to update some plugins (because they've been customized and changed)... how do I....
STOP Plesk 12 from sending me Wordpress update notification emails EVERY DAY!???? The auto-update is off... and EVERY day is sends me (and all of those clients) an ugly email about their Wordpress installations. How do I turn this OFF?
Does anyone know of a private Data Center with Satellite uplink/downlink connectivity in addition to Fiber?
I know the government depends on them for military purposes, but I was wondering if anyone is aware of a private, FCC liscenced data center with the capability to transmite/host data via satellite in case of disasters, remoteness etc. It seems complimentary for a data center but I haven't heard of it.
Is there any market research on this? What is a good source of information to find out about how many data centers there are, how much revenue they bring in, costs, etc? What is the data center bible?
I am having some serious speed issues with my 1Gbit server at FDC. After opening a ticket, they've simply dismissed it as a server configuration problem. However I am convinced it isn't because certain ISP's (usually universities) get good speeds, usually 700kb/sec but the vast majority of my users get between 20-50 kb/sec and it's causing a lot of complaints.
Furthermore I have other servers with FDC which are 100mbit which perform better than my 1 Gbit one. There are no server bottlenecks (CPU/RAM/HDD), since I've closely monitored them (PRTG) and they aren't even heavily utilised. So the problem is with the network at some point.

where abouts you are downloading from, your ISP and net connection. Wget's from servers are also welcome as are traceroutes.
I want ask How i know the Server Download speed from Rapidshare ?
