Adding servers to the China zone


#85

Done! Thank you.

I’d like to add a feature to the site so you can self-add to a special “extra overflow” zone; or alternatively - as discussed elsewhere - just make the system “figure it out” based on which zones have extra capacity and which needs help (and then add from servers with a net speed above some number).


#86

Thanks… Would be nice to be able to edit it.


#87

That’s a good idea in theory, but it would be pretty rough for some people if their traffic goes way up as the system adjusts…


#88

Could perhaps be an “opt-in” model?

You didnt even make a dent in the server by adding .br, .cn and .tr. - it only took a hit of 5-20Mbit :slight_smile:

It is one of Leo’s NTP servers and it has a dedicated 100mbit fiber connection. There is still capacity left, so if there is a need you can add it to other countries as well. What about eg. India? They seem to have only 5 NTP servers.

Hi @ask

Is there other countries in need of additional servers? I was thinking about India.

If so, please feel free to add to this one.

Br,

I would like to mention that the China zone would still benefit from new servers. One of my servers is in Singapore and also serves the China zone. Singapore itself seems to be a fairly busy zone as well. The server used to have a 2TB/month transfer limit, but seeing that the demand is much higher than that, I upgraded to a 4TB/month plan a few weeks ago. I switched my netspeed setting in the pool to 1000Mbit, and for the last week I have been sending 200+GB of NTP traffic per day. That would mean 6+TB/month, so I’ll need to adjust my netspeed setting a bit lower to stay below 4TB/month.

I would not mind if others took a slice of this traffic.


#92

This one can be added to .cn

#93

Done! I added it to in, too.

Any suggestions for what to name the “I volunteer my server to extra busy underserved zones”-zone? “overflow”? “overflow-optin”? (It will show up on the website next to the country/continent ones).


#94

It was 5.103.139.163 I volunteered to serve in the .in pool :blush:, 77.213.68.1821 should only be in .cn - it is an ordinary consumer ADSL router that cannot cope with this amount of traffic, so it is thrown out of the pool every time is has gained “10+”.

I am not sure overflow-optin is descriptive, what about “Assist underserved regions”.

Re naming. If you are looking for a short term to complement the current europe, north-america, oceania etc zones, perhaps just plain “extra”? overflow would also work. relief-valve? superhero? reserve? boost? servers-without-borders? reinforcement?

I know this is difficult, sorry I can’t help you here.
