Hello fellow Server operators,
If you have time & are interested, could you please provide feedback to my post describing my experience running servers in the NTP Pool? Why Is My NTP Server Costing $500/Year? Part 3.
I’ll attribute all suggestions, corrections and improvements.
- It costs $750/year to run a 1Gbps NTP server in US on GCE
- 10% queries originates from AWS Cloud
- For US NTP server, the bandwidth used by the pool is 2% (e.g. on a 1Gbps connection, it’s 20Mbps). It’s much lower in Singapore and Germany.
- The Snapchat incident added ~150GiB NTP responses, and cost me $13 (AWS) and $18 (GCE)
Ask already corrected the way the pool’s DNS works (i.e. it’s not round-robin), and I’ll update the post shortly.
Thanks in advance,
