bandwidth question: when mixing SP and EG servers

I've done about 6TB once, but that was thanks to a nice script and a few sites I shouldn't share on here :lol:

Most people won't even use 4TB in a month, even I barely peak at 3TB so...

Yes their bandwith packages kind of suck if you're thinking about having more than one server (I currently have somewhere around 23 that I resell) and the bandwith on those must be crap. I think I will start reselling these servers as traffic series only, because quite a lot of people get a premium series server even after I tell them not to

anyway, you could pay for the the unlimited bandwith on each server, or just get a traffic series, which aren't bad as far as the bandwith count goes.

Yes you don't get limited on download. No matter how many servers you have it has 100Mbps per server on download.

The upload is based on the average bandwidth. If you have 5 servers, 100Mbps maximum between them, you can still use 100Mbps on a single server and 0 on the others, but no more than 100Mbps total between them.

another question: you've shown bandwidth per server decreasing as i get more servers. does OVH actually physically limit the bandwidth to those levels for each server? or is it activity based?

i.e. if i have 2 servers, one is idling and the other wants to upload - will it get 50mbps or 100mbps?

"this only affects upload bandwidth, download is not limited"--

so each of my servers, regardless of how many i have, will have 100mbps download capability regardless of how much the other machines in my infrastracture are downloading?

it's only the upload that's all grouped together as part of my 100mbit infrastracture option?

You have 100Mbps between all servers up to 5 servers, then for every server after that you get 20Mbps more, up to 2Gbps.


Servers --- Bandwidth per server --- Bandwidth on your infrastructure (Mbps)
1 ----------------- 100 ---------------------------- 100
2 ----------------- 50 ----------------------------- 100
3 ----------------- 33 ----------------------------- 100
4 ----------------- 25 ----------------------------- 100
5 ----------------- 20 ----------------------------- 100
6 ----------------- 20 ----------------------------- 120
7 ----------------- 20 ----------------------------- 140
8 ----------------- 20 ----------------------------- 160
100 -------------- 20------------------------------ 2000

This only affects upload bandwidth, download is not limited.

Unless you pay for business bandwidth (guaranteed 100,200,300 or 1000) or you go onto the traffic series.

hey guys,

ok i've gone through the OVH new bandwidth regime thread, and that's all fine and clear when I'm looking at SP servers, which i have 2 of right now.

Basically my understanding is that cause i've signed up for the premium series i get 100mbps shared between all my servers, no matter how many i have. correct?

but now what if i were to get an EG server, which has allowance of 1gbps incoming / 100mbps outgoing. does it still mean that i'm getting 100mbps shared between these 3 servers? or does my allocation increase cause of the increased bandwidth allowance for the EG server?
