When I have to move resources.pichimney.com (and its older predecessor openelec.thestateofme.com) to a new VPS I was using a little over 1TB of bandwidth per month. I found a plan with 3TB to give me a little head room. Christmas has obviously been busy with people getting new Pis and playing with OpenELEC – this is a screen grab from my VPS management console taken a moment ago: We might just squeeze through December without blowing the bandwidth limit, but it’s going to be tight. If the site goes down on New Years Eve then this will be why. It looks like I need to clear up some older stuff to free up some disk space too. I’ll start by getting rid of the r11xxx builds.
Update 1 (30 Dec 2012) – The other VPS that I use as part of the image building process has 1TB of bandwidth, so I’ve cut openelec.thestateofme.com over that that (as that URL still seems to get most of the traffic). If the main VPS gets really close to the limit then I’ll cut over resources.pichimney.com. I should also point out that it’s gratifying to note that I estimate there has been over 32,000 downloads of OpenELEC from my site over the past month.
