BYOND is only using about 10% of the available network speeds on my server. I have done some testing, and the server does seem quite capable of its supposed speeds on both upload and download.
BYOND itself, on the other hand, seems to inconsistently limit itself. Even when I was downloading resources, the speed never exceeded what is shown in the screen-shots. And takes me about 5x longer than it should. Meaning I'm only downloading at about 200kbps, instead of my possible 1,000kpbs.
However, in previous months, I have seen that monitor program report BYOND as high as 2,500+, so the limit is rather odd. I have also seen various BYOND resources download at ~1,000kpbs, so I can't say BYOND is at fault. It may also be possible that those other resources were hosted on a web-server with high speeds, and not downloaded directly from a BYOND server.
I have multiple DD instances hosting multiple servers of various games, several of the same game, about 14 servers in total. The DD numbers shown in those screen-shots are the combined total for all servers.
I'm wondering how all this works on BYOND's end, if its linked to the website in any way? or if anyone knows of a limit within windows itself, which may be slowing certain programs?
