comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
@DavidSchwartz, thank you for your feedback. I'll take that into consideration. I'm more likely to find that even at peak, I'm not using all I have, and therefor these tests should be "good enough". Is that logic sound?

Change question to be more specific to the answer I actually needed. Make it less like the vague duplicate question.

comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
Somewhere in my searching today I found iptraf and installed it with yum (CentOS). I have it logging and running in the background. I'll check it tomorrow and see what it logs. I'm accepting this answer even thought I did not try "Monitorix" because it seems like the same concept.

comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
@Jacob, The suggested duplicate is a very vague "is it (will it be) good enough" type of question. I asked my question looking for how to find the statistics I need to make an informed decision. TomTom's answer and comment pointed me in the right direction.

comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
I ran iftop (reference here) for a while and the highest spike I have seen after several minutes is around 17Mb (It seems that the small "b" means "bits" rather than "bytes" ) So, unless there's a HUGE difference when the bots come a-calling, I think I'll be fine.

I could add this as an edit, but I think it makes sense as a comment here: Other than getting the new server at 100M and upgrading if I need it, How might I benchmark to know if I need a faster uplink?

comment NS records chicken and egg: NS in the domain it's serving
In practice, it seems to be dependent on the registrar. The company I work for uses our own name server, but when our registrar failed, all our sites were down. So then, the glue record is set by the registrar when you set up your custom name server.

Mickael, If you'll make that an answer, I'll give you credit for it.

I tried it again. I must have made a mistake when I pulled it out of the echo before. When I just did ps -ewwo args | grep -n '^[^ ]*curl' it worked

At this point, I am pretty much a copy and paste admin, so I found that online. I tried taking it out of the echo and my output was NULL (I think I got that from bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=791164 )

comment How to prove my VM is the only VM on a host? Will virtualization have a negative impact on a webserver that runs PHP and MySQL?
@joeqwerty In the past, we always had a physical box that was all our own. Our server was recently migrated to the Provo UT datacenter that was in the news recently for some really slow response times across the entire datacenter. I think that during the move over there is when they put us on a VM. They say it's a single VM on the one physical server just to help speed deployment.

I looked and found that CPU Steal Time is reported at the top of top. (Summary window) and It held steady at 0.0% so it would suggest that ours IS the only VM running, or that at least there's no competition for CPU cycles at the moment. Thanks for that suggestions.
