Server Down Due To High Bandwith

Mar 18, 2007

I have a dedicated server with godaddy. Yesterday it went down. I sent a trouble ticket to their support. In 4 hours I got reply saying that everything is fine and server is just experiencing high bandwith. I was able to login to control panel (which is available through different IP address, and I have noticed that my usual 8 gigs a day bandwidth increased to 160 a day for yesterday. I cannot SSH to my server. I cannot access my website via http. I cannot FTP to my server. I cannot do anything. I have submitted another ticket and waiting fro reply.

Any suggestions? Is this an attack? (I feel it is, but not sure) What kind of attack can bring server down, if I have CISCO firewall installed? I am little upset with godaddy, because so far, my server has been down for over a day. Any providers out there, who are more rapid in terms of helping their customers? FYI: I pay them $150 a month.

High Bandwith Hosting

Aug 18, 2007

Im currently with host gator and have nothing but amazing things to say but i have a music streaming website and its eating up bandwith like crazy but at least the cpu usage of the shared hosting is not that high but i will definitley pass my 2 terabyte mark within the month. My question is even on the dedicated hosting plans on host gator they still dont offer a lot of bandwith so does anyone know any very reliable and good companies that offer a LOT of bandwith for a moderate price. I was looking at liquid web dedicated which offers 3 terabytes as i hear their super reliable and professional

High Server Load / High Swap / Lots Of Httpd

Feb 20, 2008

I have a cPanel server with 4GB RAM

My server hangs time to time, once or twice a day. This is the last status when it happens.

Server Load 75.90 (2 cpus)
Memory Used 92 %
Swap Used 65.78 %

When I was still inside SSH when it happens, the processes I can see inside "top" are a lot of httpd processes.

So I "killall -9 httpd", I had to do it 30~40 times

#killall -9 httpd
#killall -9 httpd
#killall -9 httpd
x 30~40 times until no pid process found & the server load is back to normal.

Before that, I check httpd fullstatus, they look very normal, same goes to what I see inside WHM Apache status & cpu usage status.

At first I thought it was a memory problem after consulting with a server admin, so I replaced all 4GB new ram stick (such a waste)

Server High Load/high Mysql Usage

Jul 2, 2009

I have a site that is eating up my server resources and need to know what the best solution for this is. I'm thinking of getting another server just for mysql but do not know what specs the server should be to handle the current traffic/database load and have the site run smoothly without slowing down to a snail's pace.

An alternative is to get another server just for the videos being served and leave the database and html on the current server. This is where I'm stuck and don't know what route to take with this.

My current server stats:

Dual Xeon 5130
50 Mbit/sec
CentOS 3.9

Website traffic stats:

15,000 visitors/day
150,000 pageviews/day
Serving videos

I've attached screenshots of top and bandwidth usage per day. Hopefully with this information you could tell me if I need another server or if there are any things I can do to the current server to help things move faster.

Jul 23, 2007

I am not sure if this is a dumb question or not but here it is anyway,
if there is a website and some of the images are hosted on a third party site (ie. photobucket), does the bandwith for those loaded from the third party site count as the sites hosting bandwith?

In my opinion I do not believe it does because it is making a call to the image on the other hosting server, but a friend of mine who manages a forum said that once the users started using more animated signatures that the site bandwith went up by almost 40%, but all signatures are hosted on other sites.

Nov 22, 2007

dedicated host provider [url] and trying to determine the options from them in regards to bandwith. If I decide to go with them I will be using them to host a youtube clone site

has any body had experience with them?

Here is their deal
Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU
1 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 Ram
250 GB SATA300 Drive
Unmetered Bandwidth
I'm planning to ugrade the ram to 4gb at 300.00 one time extra.

They claim Free 24 hr On-Site Support so I called them up last night at 3:30am their time and did get a technition on the line.
They also refer to themselves as being "fully managed" and describe in detail what that means in their faq.

Their BW is unmetered and unshared
10mbps = 3,285 gigs/mo
4mbps 1,314 gigs/month burstable to 100 mbps
going over this limit the charge is 49.00 for each 328.5 gigs

So because I'm a start up and have no idea what will be required in terms of BW. here is the question

If I had a limit on uploads of 200 mb and the average size of the videos being downloaded were 20 mb how many people could be online at the same time?

I'm not even sure if that's the right way to look at it.

How Much Bandwith Can You Really Push Through FDC's VPS

Dec 6, 2008

i see that there is 84/month and a 119/month VPS, which offer burstable 100mbps unmetered...i also heard they use shared line.

so what is the max bandwith that i can really push in a month ? i am okay with users loading the site @ 100kb/s, especially because the site has lot of videos through flash player, and 100kb/s or even 50kb/s sounds good.

if there are anyone that can beat FDC than please refer me to them!

moving away from PRTG, and go to something that is equivalent on a unix* distro. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm looking for something nearly identical to Paessler's product with mutiple sensors, and assigned users, coupled with 95th and GB billing via snmp. This needs to an independent system, preferably with Bandwith Graphing the sole purpose.

Clarification On Port Speeds And Bandwith

Apr 11, 2008

I am going to be having a site where users upload and view videos so i need fast streaming.

soft layer offers this

0Mbps Public / Private Port Upgrade $0.00
100Mbps Public / Private Port Upgrade $10.00
1000Mbps Public / Private Port Upgrade $20.00

Can someone breifly describe to me the difference in having more MBPS and how this would affect the performance of a site like mine and its function?

Also can someone ellaborate on these 2 and the differences between metered bandwith and unmetered. They offer 100 dollars per extra TB and then following below so im lost as to what unmetered means, because their is no way it means unlimited right?

10Mbps Unmetered Public Bandwidth $100.00
100Mpbs Unmetered Public Bandwidth $2000.00

What Should Be The Avg. Price Of 100mbps Unmetered Bandwith

Apr 26, 2008

i was just roaming around the websites of different server providers, coz i was willing to start cheap ftp backup services so for me bandwith prices would be more of an issue than the actual server prices coz what i've noted down from all these providers there server prices vary b/w plus minus $100 or less but their bandwith my GOD it varies like STOCK EXCHANGE! offers for less than $1400 and some like others even for $1000 but TO MY SURPRISE LIMESTONE OFFERS IT FOR A WHOPPING 2K YA $2000 and server beach offers 10mbps unmetered for $80-100 so for $2000 i can buy 150mbps unmetered rather than 100mbps from LIMSTONE means rather than 33000gb i can get 33k+16.5k gb = approx 50,000gb
so i can earn more!

We currently throttle using rate-limit but wan't to dedicate 2mb of our 10mb leased line to 1 client.

We are using a cisco 3600 running IOS 12.0.

Has anyone got any ideas as to how we can go about this?

Consuming Heavy Bandwith Upto 2000 US$+ Per Month

Jun 14, 2008

We are facing a very problematic situation since last several months due to accessive bandwith usage. But we are sure this is only local traffic.

We have 2 Servers with our hosting provider
Server A - this is a VPS
all our webfiles/domains/dns/nameservers reside on this server

Server B - this is a dedicated server
contains only databases

(we are actively running vbulletin based forums on this servers)

Since last several months we are facing huge bandwith increase since we have transferred only our databases to Server B. (earlier database + everything was on Server A) We never ever consumed even 50% of the entire allocated bandwith in past when we were on Server A.

But only after moving the database from Server A to Server B we have found this tremendous increase,

Can we do something about same ? as both the servers belong to same hosting provider.
We are not sure but expect that this is only local network traffic between 2 servers.

Alternative To RAPIDSWITCH - Or Any Provider With Burst Bandwith Beyond 100mbit

Mar 27, 2008

I have specific request.

I have client that use around 6-8 TB per month of traffic (nothing unusual really).

The issue is that, at some short hours per week (twice or less per week) - burst goes to 90 Mbit. So basicly, I need a solution, where in near future, if need it - burst can go all the way up to 130-150 Mbit when need it.
Any Gbit providers I seen, they usual say like speed will be around 80mbit or so - and that makes no difference.

I did check RAPIDSWITCH, and in all aspect they ar great (nothing
to complain) - but the offer they have with 10TB data, is good only unless you pass 10TB at some point.

After that, 1 TB of data is $200 or so (depens on exchange rate of $).

At the moment, 10TB of data transfer should be enough but if by some chance, it goes beyond that, it will incresse the cost alot.

Hosted content is pure FLV files, normal videos, nothing special.

My budget is in normal range, but still the less is better.

I will take any suggestion on this, or if someone can push me in some direction (company or point of contat).

Bandwith Quota Maxed With 24k Page Views In 9 Days

May 7, 2008

Its been about 9 days since I launch new site.

75gb BW (bandwith) is used up. 24,000 page views so far.

Now I check and I am over the BW limit by at least 30gb.

I have to pay 50 cents additional for each gb.

Continuing the increasing bw spikes I realize it is not economically viable continuing for now, considering what I pay for original package.

The site has been down for at least 24 hours. My budget is rather tight at the moment being a student with full time loan. I did not realize VPS would continue even though bandwith limit has been reached.
