Bandwidth

Hi,

I was wondering how much bandwidth do Animesuki uses in a month since it is such a popular site?

Depends what you mean by uses. We have a number of front end mirrors, some back end servers (torrent spider, etc.) and the forum. Each uses different amounts of bandwidth... and each is run by a different person so no one person has a complete picture of the bandwidth usage. It would be interesting if they all posted here with some usage statistics though

So that's the case. Yup, I agree with you NightWish. I'd love to see those amazing statistics!

Lol, the moment we see a "please donate some $" add on the main site we know we have passed the budget

There is a publicly available site that shows the stastics for this server, as well as others. I forget where its at but I remember seeing it a really long time ago. I'd like to see it again if anyone remembers the address.

Hmm, 1-3 Tb sounds a bit much... but, the main site is using at least 20-25 Gb per day.

And as that kind of bandwidth doesn't come for free, you see why there are ads on the site...

Yes, well... that we don't. AnimeSuki spends 1-3 Tb on PLAIN TEXT (well, html) and little graphics.

Note: Mb81 informed me that the 1-3 Tb count IS accurate when you look at the overal picture:
Webalizer (webstats software) doesn't show everything (headers overhead, etc)

ok, no one unless you have your own server can take "1-3 terrabytes" and make any knowledge with it. so stop pretending like "wow I know what I'm talking about when I say that's alot.

Sure it SOUNDS like alot, but who knows if it is for this situation.

anwyays- what I'd like to know is,

How do you guys keep up with those expenses?

do you get enough donations? Fill the gap with your own pockets? Or maybe I shouldn't ask this?

How much do you end up paying monthly?

Well, considering my website gets about 1.5GB of bandwidth per month (it's almost entirely just text), in my opinion 1-3 terabytes is a LOT of bandwidth. Then again, I'm only getting about 200-250 unique visitors per day at this point. I can't even imagine how many visitors AnimeSuki must get to pull in 25GB per day.

The admins must get a lot of money from advertising to be able to pay for all of that...

I believe a large portion of the cost is covered by the advertisements that appear on the main site and the banners in the forums.

But what's more interesting is that how Scarywater can handle all peers! Animesuki can have 1-3TB bandwidth per month, how about Scarywater? Most of Animesuki's "torrent" are directed to them.

I'm really amazed as what Scarywater can do to support such a large amount of peers. Just by Naruto alone, whenever a new episode is released, you can see how much the peers is! We can't see what tracker they run on, unlike others. I guess they must have powerful servers?
