Increased Bandwidth

Recommended Posts

Was sitting here wondering what affect this topic has on the bandwidth in different areas.

 

The TCH servers must be going crazy with usage.

 

Customers may need to keep an eye on their individual limits.

 

What I see is a lot of folks have uploaded their pictures to their web sites at TCH and placed the img on the board. What I believe this does is downloads all the images each time someone visits this topic.

 

Right now I see 70 replies and 2500+ views. And the views are climbing every time someone goes back to view the new pictures.

 

Is this correct or am I way off base here :goof:

Bob, you are correct. They should be attaching the images to the posts to save their bandwidth. :goof:

I think there's a way to exclude visits from TCH in your webstats, tho, so you won't get skewed results. Or am I confused in the point of this topic?

 

lemme know :angry:

 

Cuz i remember one time asking if I could exclude the sig file (which use to be a gif) from my AWStats cuz I believed it would give skewed results... ah, found the post of an answer here: Skipping files in AWStats

The concern isn't the AWStats reporting. It's that some people could go over their bandwidth allocation for the month, because of the big graphics frequently being called.

as the big g says, I was pointing out the possibility that some folks may have a surprise in store for them concerning their bandwidth usage.

 

At first it looked like everyone was placing their picture on THEIR websites and then inserting an image link to it so it displays on the board. What happens is that everytime someone views the topic each and every one of these pictures is downloaded, if someone refreshes the page it is downloaded again.

 

This can be problem for folks who are reaching the end of their bandwidth limits here toward the end of the month. I saw a few pictures that were way up in the 700-900k range, and with the "views" of the topic reaching 2000 that could quickly push you over the limit.

 

This post may have done some good, I see a lot of the pictures have been changed to attachments which will reside on TCH side of the house.
