    Question Ftp Bandwith

    Hi all,
    I have just bought a OpenVZ VPS and I a question regarding FTP.
    I would like to know how VPS will reserve bandwith in case of FTP.
    In particular i would like to know if I should take care of my ftp bandwith, limiting it (in up or down), to prevent http user to see "slow down" in navigation.
    I'm not sure that's clear so will try an example.
    I will have one ftp client uploading a FTP file to a site at 50K/s, 1 user downloading another FTP file for 500K/s and 10 http users navigating the sites.
    There is some bandwithd "acting" system that will prevent saturation in the VPS machine (the fisical machine that serve for many VPS) and how it works?

    if is not clear i will try to make a better explaintion.
    Thansk!

    I don't think this is something you really need to worry about unless you plan to push a LOT of bandwidth (which will be limited somewhat by your VPS configuration ( http://wiki.vpslink.com/index.php?ti...guration_files ). In the end, I dont think this should be much of a concern, really, assuming you stay within the limits of your VPS packaged bandwidth.

    Thanks Jason.
    I have link4, so i suppose a "limit" of 2,5/5 mb/s.
    My worries are that if someone will downalod a file from ftp will "slow down" also the http server.
    I f someone will download a ftp file at 5mb/s, how will the vps react?
    I'm reading a lot in the net (im newbe in linux), and i wonder if I must limit ftp bandwith of my vps or, in the structure, there is already a system that will manage that.

    sorry for may english

    The TCP implementation handles the majority of this. You only need to worry about this if you have a *lot* of traffic or if you notice problems. At the point where you would need to worry you probably have enough traffic that you would need to move to a dedicated server.
