Bandwidth utilization comparison thread

I think you’re looking for this.


Thanks for the correction, but I’m not SGC :grin:

sowwy… can’t find my glasses today LOL :sob:


i think you might be referring to this… if not then please specify what exactly you are talking about… the SNOboard?

did a scrub… the effects of the disk latency is also much more clear in this new log… duno if other stuff than upload was inaccurate before… just haven’t really noticed this clear a difference before

near max utilization array / pool

low utilization of the pool / array

Did some calcs on your Nodes - at least for those “full” (for other nodes impossible - not enough data)
Node 1 - ~99.8 kb/s / TB stored - that’s what I would like to see on all my nodes - this kind of utilization if it is average - this node is quite efficient in utilization
but comparing to node 3
Node 3 - has like 32 kb/s /TB stored - not too much cash from it

What is the difference between those two nodes? age? hardware? anything else?

Also do you have more detailed info about nodes that are not full? - because you cannot do those calculations on “not full” info - the kb/s /TB stored needs a number on used space.

Also - if you like to do something like this table below:

value1 value2
a b

You can export your data in this format:

  • it would be much easier to read through your data (thanx! if you will change, no pressure - if you don’t care :wink: )

Are you sure that it is only ~2 weeks old? - my 3 weeks old (since 23rd) only gathered ~200GB your node gathered 600+GB - wondering why the difference - is my location that bad? :frowning:

@dragonhogan nice numbers!
Node 1 - 71 kb/s /TB stored - that I like - can you remind me how old is it?
Node 2 - only 51 - also great, I like the first one better :wink:

My node is doing much lower…
~25 2 weeks ago
~40 since the egress pick up (excluding the day with satellite fail - 8th) - got bunch of ping errors about that in the log.

My numbers:

Nice 65kb/s / TB stored I wish it would be at least average for all

Difference between Node 1 & Node 3: other ISP; Node 1 is 4 month older than Node 3.
What detailed info do you need? - The current space used?

Current space used would be great - it helps us to compare our bandwidth utilization in terms of used space per node.

i duno i haven’t done my summery of all the data on the thread yet…

my egress was for like the first week of monitoring bandwidth the lowest… if that trend continued i am about to find out… new node numbers are bad… they will always be bad…

think of it a bit like this… if you upload something… then do you download it right away?

it takes time, before people end up downloading their uploads again… and until one passes the avg time it takes for somebody to start downloading their stuff, then egress will be going up… and then when the node reaches a certain age, egress avg over many months will become stable… maybe drop a bit until we get into the years ranges and start hitting major backup restoration events…

those are going to be good… even if not as common, but i’m sure it happens more often than people will like to admit… especially for super massive data sets…

but yeah… unless if something changed then my egress is weak and will continue to be so until the node passes the avg download time… and since it’s mostly test data then might be after the 9 month mark or so…

Now with corrected node sizes. I have nodes on 2 locations, with 3 ISPs, these are now visible in the table.
