comment Is it viable to run very lightweight services straight off a Raspberry Pi 2?
As well as problems related to heat, apparently corruption when writing to the SD card is common when the power supply is not able to provide as much current as the rPi wants at the time. This is especially common when powering several rPis of the same power adaptor or hub.

comment Transfer 15TB of tiny files
To verify the data run the compression step on both sides and compare the result on one side or the other. You'd need to make sure that the files are all in the archive in the same order which might not be possible. In that case you could (assuming enough space is available repeat the transfer in reverse to a different location and compare the result using a standard file compare utility. Or if space is short, transfer to a third (spacious) location from both source and target servers, and do the compare there.

comment Why is it good practice to compare checksums when downloading a file?
To add to add to the comment by @0xC0000022L SHA1 is best avoided if security is a major concern already too, though both it and MD5 are perfectly adequate to defend against accidental corruption.

comment How to get the maximum details from a remote host and forcefully get a particular IP?
If the address was given out by dhcp them your dhcp service's logs will probably contain the machine's network card's MAC. You then might be able to find clues using nmap or similar to scan for that MAC and if found looking at what is running on that interface.

comment Monitor server / website load of bandwith
That would only monitor web server input+output, not any other sort of traffic (SSH, database calls if the web server accesses a database on another host, FTP connections, and so forth). Also it won't take into account TCP/IP overheads.
