Bandwidth @mac.com?
Authored by: russh on May 09, '02 06:20:22AM

I was not aware that Apple restricted bandwidth. Is this something new? I know that *many* software developers use mac.com to distribute updates, etc.

Good luck finding a new home, Rob. In my view, the guidebook should be included on iDisk!

Fuzzy guidelines...

I read all the guidelines before I moved the Guidebook there, and there's nothing definitive about bandwidth usage. They just make some statement that gives them the rights to suspend the page if usage is too high.

I notice this morning, of course, that the site is back online!

Do you have a means of seeing if there was a huge spike in downloads in the last 48 hours or something.. I'm just trying to figure out the "meter".. is it clocking bandwidth cumulatively over a long period of time, or does it react to spikes of activity, etc. Hmmm.

Last year I posted 18MB Gaming video my Mac.com website and according to the counter on that page it had over 13K people visit in two days. Received a lot of responses from people thanking me for the file.
There was no way to monitor the downloading but figure many did download it.
Apple's guidelines didn't specify a limit. But maybe it's some kind of govenor.

iTools Police
Authored by: Maran on May 09, '02 10:31:26PM

It may be a newer thing -- I have long predicted Apple starting to get more strict about iTools resources use. I know some people who have several accounts (as opposed to buying more disk space from them). With the economy the way it is, if they can afford to police things, they probably will start doing it.
