I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find the thread -- it might be from pre-forum crash ... anyway the answer is really simple: it depends how popular the tracker is.

Check ScaryWater for an example of a popular, high-bandwidth, tracker... Can't think of a low bandwidth example that shows stats right off the top of my head... really the best way to find out is "trial and error" -- try it and see.

yeah, but those stats show how much data is being transferred over the torrents the tracker hosts, not how much bandwidth is used in the actual running of the tracker

Oh, sorry, yeah you're right there arn't any graph of the server's bandwidth... However, on the index page (right hand side, "Statistics" box):

Which gives you an idea of the sort of bandwidth you could expect per announce and per scrape request. The volume is so high on that tracker the averages are probably pretty good statistically speaking... how that translates to another tracker will depend on how popular it is -- how many announces you expect, how many requests for the scrape you get.

Edit: That doesn't account for the downloads of the actual torrent files either I forgot to mention -- but then that doesn't have to be part of the tracker... and it should be easy to calculate from the file sizes.

Most trackers are highly efficient in bandwidth. If you're plannning to host a tracker with couple thousand of peers, then almost any kind of home connection is sufficient.

It depends what kind of tracker you're using. For a bnbt tracker, you can host about 5000-7000 peers on a ISDN connection. For example, a bnbt tracker with 1000 peers constantly will take about 2-3 gb per month(1-2 kb/s).

Aoi's tracker uses 100 MB per day on average... peaking at 300 or so
