I was planning to buy a VPS for my Counter Strike 1.6 Servers running on it.
How much bandwidth do I need for my VPS Server?
I was trying to know what will be the requirements for my server.
Likewise I am really curious to know.
Any guesses? I see on some website that 25kb/s bandwidth is needed for single player.
PS: I would be running multiple servers on it, or say 32 slot in total.
There are tools online to calculate everything for you or do the math. Check with your provider what they will let you do. VPS provider will pkill your server if it is dedicated and especially if you have several maxed out. Order a 'Dedicated' server otherwise you might lose your money from abusing their rules on resource use like no long running processes over 20 sec, etc.
Tool I use to fudge it with GoldSrc: Variable timing sys_ticrate
to use a hibernate at least when nobody is online.
So our limiting factor in today's real world with VPS is CPU % not bandwidth typically.
