almost 50tb at last check, with almost 8tb of that being 2160p content.
Usually around 250-400GB here. Nothing too crazy.
about 90GB of 1000GB total. Telstra cable.
far out man.. never ever wanna watch a video twice eh? haha!
Half way through the billing cycle and hit the 200GB limit.
Apparently shaped to 256k, Netfilx still works though (bit fuzzy) haha.
1080p Netflix does use a lot of data.
I use ~490GB of my 500GB plan each month...mostly HD Netflix, Twitch Streaming, Youtube etc.. Sometime I be a lad and help out people with shit DSL to download patches, Steam Games etc when they really need it.
Any chance of providing us some info on how you store/manage all that? Personally i'm more interested in how you've cut up your data array to store then back that up and a rough cost of $$$ input into that bulk storage.
Having said that for me its around 500-700GB/month and i'm up to 19.7TB out of 20TB so less then a months storage left for me ..... looking at 3K or so on more storage to take me up to 40TB or so.
On average I was accumulating 2.2-2.6TB a month now it's about 1.3-1.8TB @ 2Mb/s on ADSL2+. I suppose I have all the Linux ISO's I could think of so it's not so much a requirement...
Basically its broken down into so.
32gb DDR3 ECC ram
120gb ssd boot drive (i think its a samsung)
120mm fan wall using artic cooling fans
24x3tb drives (mixture of Toshiba/Hitachi drives)
Its built into 2x 12 drive raid 6 which gives a usable size of 54.4tb (27.2tb per array)
Fairly bulletproof system have had it for a number of years now.
In addition to that
16x2tb drives (Hitachi)
Connected via 8088 in a 16 drive raid 6 array (25.34tb usable)
Gigabyte i3 brix
8gb ddr3l ram
Proway 8 drive usb 3 external enclosure
8x5tb toshiba drives, individual drives, 4.54tb each so 36.32tb usable.
Now currently the main server is at 99.89% full external sas box is 99.91% full and download server is 81.40%
Currently backing up the non essentials (ive had the critical stuff backed up for awhile now via crashplan.
At home between 3 of us we use about 50-60gb a month. Our bandwidth allocation is 1TB.
At the office we use about 30-40gb out of an allocation of 1TB.
even just using cheapnews lots fail due to not enough blocks or some crap..
if i had more disk space, I'd download a lot more than I do
Around 2-3TB a month.
Most of my content is 720p episodes and 1080p movies, and then software and streaming media on top.
Between netflix, steam downloads, xbox downloads, p2p and uploading gear to youtube I use about 500 gb of my 1,000 gb quota - 2 people
Between netflix, xbox and p2p usually somewhere between 6-800 GB a month.
Average is about 100GB/month.
I'm not even sure how I tell. Unlimited plan with TPG = no stats in the my account section.
Lots of 720p content though, and Netflix which always streams in HD as well as Dolby Digital+.
Router stats? my RSP is the same but i just pull my data direct off my router.
I wonder what peoples per-person usage works out to be and if that levels things out at all.
we are 100 - 160GB / person.
I'm going off my Gargoyle (Router) stats, Optus only give you this month and no history at all on the unlimited plans.
