Has anyone else noticed throttled speeds on their servers? I confirmed it on 1 of my boxes, transfer 1200MB file to an OVH server never went past 4.2MB/s and dropped as low as 600KB/s. It took 18 minutes and 30 seconds to transfer.
Same server upload to another server.lu box got 7-9MB/s and was done in 2:39 so much better, reliable speed.
I've had other people show me their vnstat & MRTG, showing speeds never going above 3-4MB/s 24 hours a day for the last 3 days or so.
FAQ says "100 MBIT/s unmetered servers on average can transfer between 10-15TB per month outbound and 20-25TB inbound. The bandwidth allocation is not guaranteed/dedicated, and is supplied on a best-effort basis, which may result in some slowdowns during peak traffic times."
Is peak time 24 hours a day? There's no mention that intentional bandwidth shaping will be implemented but based on the tests and speeds, it seems to be the case.
Unrelated but the FAQ above that is about unavailability and knowing the facts. Several M servers have lost connectivity over the past few days, sometimes for a few hours & atleast 3 people reported faults. Still, nobody knows why it's happening, what the solution is or if one has been found yet. There isn't any disclosure or finding the truths that are passed on to the customer.
So is there throttling in place that nobody knows about or something else happening? Further up in the FAQ "...and similar are not covered by our unmetered services and that misuse will automatically incur a connectivity restriction after prior notification." If there is restrictions in place, nobody has been notified prior by any means.
