I’m just wondering what you would consider to be the absolute minimum bandwidth requirements in order to run a relay server and not to choke the whole connection up. This is both in terms of upload and download bandwidth. Has anyone got some experience and/or numbers regarding the approximate amount of data that a relay server usually uses?
My own experience is limited to having previously run a relay server on a 100 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload connection, and I didn’t experience any bandwidth-related issues back then, but I’m curious what the required minimums are.
Yeah, but I’m still curious what you’d consider the minimum, below which it’s not even worth it to try running the server.
The relay we’re talking about here is likely going to be the only one in the country (and a larger geographical region actually, as there’re almost no relays there right now), so it may in fact be quite loaded.
