SmarTest

Recommended Posts

Some of you may have noticed the increase in activity on this site in the past 30-45 days... lots more people.  That's because there has been about a 40% increase in traffic.  This has not yet become a problem... but bandwidth is getting up there.  I figured I would work on this soon to be problem before it became a problem.

I have made some adjustments to the SmarTest forwarding.  Main thing you all will notice is the start size is down to 97KB - This, I have found, is a good start size for the test to determine what file size to send you.  Doing this will also relieve a little bit of traffic from the server.  The forwarding has also been tweaked a little to try and save bandwidth... not by serving you smaller files necessarily, but by sending you the right file the first time, if you have a fast line you most likely know what I'm talking about... for instance

|||  you click SmarTest it starts > 386KB > 2992KB > 5983KB > Results  (9361KB to do a 5983KB test!??!!)

sometimes even

|||  you click SmarTest it starts > 386KB > 1496KB > 2992KB  > 5983KB > Results  (9361KB to do a 5983KB test!??!!)

instead of doing all that to get to the end result of sending you 5983 KB test file... it will now (more of the time) do something like this

||| you click SmarTest it starts > 97KB > 5983KB > Results  (6080KB to do a 5983KB test... more like it)

In that scenario this would save 3.2MB that saves a lot of bandwidth when you take into consideration the amount of people who frequent this site..

Also, the 12160KB (12 MB) test that was becoming a novelty has been slightly restricted.  You can't go directly to the test without the results page suggesting that you use that test.  You can still use that test... but you will need to score 9000Kbps in order to use it.  Just about everyone can agree that a line slower than that really doesn't need all that test... 6MB is quite big also.

I am not in anyway restricting the amount of tests you can perform, I am not restricting the type of tests you can perform.  I am simply trimming waste.

I understand why CA3LE did this, testing backbones over and over again steal alot of bandwidth from the server

Yes, I do make money from Google... though it would be a breach of my agreement with Google to go into details.  I pay for the current server, with proceeds from advertising.  So in essence, those who support my advertising are paying for the hosting ;-)

You know.. i have a ( friendly written; but has other features ) program that can go to any site and "click" any adds on the page using thousands of proxy servers.. Think of the money  $_$ 

(altho thats dishonest so <.<)
