Update: WotLK mirror going down

My Wrath of the Lich King mirror will be shut down on November 13th. On that day, the new World of Warcraft add-on will be released and the beta ends, making a beta patch mirror obsolete.

I got quite a bit of experience about running a high traffic HTTP download site. Some funny stats:

Size: 7.2 GiB files (And Logfiles up to 2.4 GiB uncompressed)

Aug: 994.43 GiB (In: 49.56 GiB, Out: 944.87 iGB)
Sep: 1.62 TiB (In: 66.68 GiB, Out: 1.55 TiB)
Oct: 1.09 TiB (In: 46.11 GiB, Out: 1.04 TiB)
Nov: 224.69 GiB (In: 7.48 GiB, Out: 217.21 GiB)

That's about 55 GiB/Day in September. Because that was way to much, I had to enable bandwith limiting.

Most hits were also during September. The site received 14 million hits that month, or about 5 hits every second. Most hits came from CoBlitzProxy fetching chunks of a file.

Since Coldara is already offline, I have also taken down my WotLK mirror.
