Thread: Question about noSLA mode

  1. #1

    Question about noSLA mode

    If someone has quite a few servers and most are using only a small amount of bandwidth and one is using a lot (about 50Mbit/s), is it possible to put the one server in to noSLA mode to keep the others in SLA mode?

    I was just thinking that it would be good because that way the bandwith on the others is not affected by one high usage server.

    Also, can we please clear up what exactly noSLA is? are servers capped at 20Mbit/s? or are they restricted per connection? or per carrier? - there are very mixed messages in this forum, and the definition of noSLA seems very inconsistent.

    thanks

    Re: Question about noSLA mode

    SLA = No limits
    noSLA = Limited to 20Mbps per connection per carrier.

    Thats all I can make out from what we have been told.

    To get the server put into noSLA mode you will have to contact OVH but if your overall bandwidth is less than 101Mbps then you will be fine in SLA. If you continually go over 101Mbps or sustain 101Mbps+ for long periods then they will move you to noSLA.

    noSLA = no limit on peering, limit 20Mbps per serveur per carrier
    we have 5 carriers => 100Mbps

    What if you have a 1Gbps server? Does that limit it to 100Mbps full stop? 5x20Mbps = 100Mbps?

    5x20 = 1000 ? :-)

    Re: Question about noSLA mode

    Andy, I think he is saying that 5 x 20 does not equal 1000....

    If you see Oles statement he says that noSLA is where you are limited to 20Mbit per carrier, OVH working together with a total of 5 carriers, in other words no matter what sort of server you have you will be limited to 100Mbit.

    Defeats the point of 1Gbps then doesn't it... If you use 101Mbps+ then you get put into noSLA, meaning max 100Mbps if its 20Mbps x 5 carriers. It means 1Gbps unlimited is not possible, therefore its false advertising. I suggest OVH look at this and make it clear in their terms and conditions if they are going to do this. If they don't, they could see someone take court action against them for false advertising.

    Just my 2p...

    Re: Question about noSLA mode

    Hi Andy,

    I've done some digging around on the the main OVH website and found this:-

    We will change next week our site et propose SLA bandwidth
    if you use less that 101Mbps. So there is no more trafic
    limite in OVH. If you use more that 101Mbps (for your
    projet, so you have more that 2 serveurs or you have 1
    gigabit server and you use in total > 101Mbps), you CAN
    (but not sure) be switched to noSLA trafic.

    What is SLA trafic ?
    You have 100Mbps or 1Gbps trafic include in your server.
    You can make "10Mbps per connexion" 24 hours per day.

    What is noSLA trafic ?
    You have 100Mbps or 1Gbps trafic include in your server.
    You can make "10Mbps per each connexion" during the night
    and in the day you will have 5Mbps, 3Mbps, 1Mbps or less
    PER CONNEXION.
    I think that they are covered because they will provide you with Gbit speeds however during the night you will be limited to 10Mbps per connection (not carrier) at night and during the day you will possibly receive 5 3 or 1 Mbps per connection.

    ----- between 0h y 9h -10Mbps per connection
    ----- between 9h y 15h - from 5Mbps to 500Kbps per connection
    ----- between 15h y 21h - 500Kbps per connection
    ----- between 21h y 23 - from 500Kbps to 5Mbps per connection
    ----- between 23H y 24h - 10Mbps per connection

    GBit example:-

    If for example 100 users with 10mbit decided to download at 08:00 hrs, they would all get 10mbit, however if they decided to download at 09:30 they would get 5mbit each, meaning that you would need 200 users to max out your GBit etc...

    If you can take a look at the contract you agreed to when you signed up, it should state something about it there

    I'm pretty sure this has been changed as stated in other threads. Especially as oles just posted above. Also the noSLA changes were brought in after I joined, thus they could not have been in the contract I agreed to.
