RE: WhatPulse on my server
Sure, thanks for clarifying that. I won't install the client on my server.

Servers are not condoned, as whatpulse is a desktop application as it stands. I also tend to delete/contact the owners when I see them.

Maybe the rules need to be clarified somehow.

Generating traffic is kind of a grey area. What if people are serving things from their desktop PC? What about a p2p program such as bitcoin-qt? Most of the traffic is generated from network peers, and it can be used as both a desktop app for managing your bitcoin wallet, and a server utility. What if your mother-in-law is spamming you with video messages on Skype while you're not home? Tongue

RE: WhatPulse on my server
Hi,

I just installed WhatPulse on one of my PCs' but I run my own servers and on one of them that emails to my website subscribers I need to measure the bandwidth that that particular server uses when doing a large emailing. I don't want to monitor anything else and doing it as a onetime event would also work for me.

I didn't quite follow WHY servers aren't condoned?

Would WhatPulse do this for me? And/or does anyone have any other suggestions for bandwidth measurement?

Server is CentOS.

Thanks all,

Nat

RE: WhatPulse on my server
Nat: There are things like munin and vnstat that are designed for exactly what you're trying to do.

Bloopy: Are those all running on a persons desktop computer? Okay, that's fine. If it became a problem we'd look into it. The point is, servers are a no-no.

WhatPulse was not designed to be ran on servers, and is purposely not. The fact it requires the GUI to really do anything should be pretty clear that it's made only for desktop computers.

It's not going to be clear to users of Windows servers. Also, I can see why SearchBuzz thought that if he personally hosts the website, then it's his traffic to record. I suggest writing something about servers in the rules on the knowledge base.

I do agree, we should have something about no servers in the rules. We'll look into that.
