bandwidth notice using grlevel3 script
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:22:10 PM »
Has anyone else seen excessive ftp traffic to their website provider using the grlevel3 program and script lately?  Iím only uploading br1 screens and Iíve changed nothing in years with the script. My site provider mddhosting shut my site down stating I went over 10gig for the month and I needed to upgrade to an unlimited plan. Not really a big deal as now itís $5.99 a month but it was grandfathered at $3.50 a month.

When I went into mddhosting cpanel it showed all of a sudden in the last 3 days I sent over 10gig of ftp traffic. Cpanel continues to show Iím ftping over 3gig a day.   I shut off the grlevel3 program and it went to zero so clearly this is the app causing the excessive usage.

This ones weird :)

GRLevel3 does upload the entire set of sequence images for each view you selected.  Your br1 image is 198770, so 1.9MB per upload cycle (every 10 minutes).

Thats about 274MB/day per image set.  To get to 3GB/day, there must be other views open (beside the br1 view) in the GRLevel3 that is submitting in order for those extra sequences to cause that much traffic.
