Fun fact. Since the last restart of the server, about a month ago:
Description Incoming Outgoing
Packets Transfered 14252117 17447061
Bytes Transfered 1.19GiB 1.54GiB
Average per Second 936Bytes /s 5KiB /s
Average per Minute 1.15KiB /s 3.25KiB /s
(sorry for the bad "table".... this was the only way to make it look a bit usable
Note the Average... This is actual averages... because there are some "low crowd" times... but at highest, I've seen over 1MB/minute! That's pretty awesome, for a sysadmin like me, to see
To give you an idea of how this compares to a website:
An average website (not battlefield, google, whatever, but say... a simple user-blog) transfers about 500MB/month.
That is, including images, data, scripts, programs, downloads etc.
This is JUST YOU GUYS TALKING!
(You really don't know how to shut up, do you?
There goes my bandwidth!
(No, it's ok, the server should easily be able to handle more data)
