Aggregated Datagraphs: Colocation


Viewing Aggregated Bandwidth Graphs for a Colocated Server

The aggregated datagraph combines the bandwidth consumption of all of your colocated servers. This provides an estimate of the total bandwidth consumption of all your servers. 

Perform the following steps to view the aggregated bandwidth graphs for a colocated server:

  1. In the menu bar, under Colocation, select Aggregated Datagraphs.
    The Aggregated Graph for Colocation page displays.
  2. From this page, you can perform the following tasks:


    Field Name Description

    Select this check box to display the 95th percentile usage of this colocated server.

    For 95th percentile (burstable), you can have short bandwidth bursts, until you have reached the limits of your port speed. For example, if your commitment is 100 Mbps and you have a 1 Gbps port, for an average of 36 hours in the billing cycle, your bandwidth can go up to 1 Gbps without incurring any additional cost. 

    From the drop-down list, select one of the options provided. Based on that, you can view the bandwidth or 95th percentile usage of your colocated server on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
    Click to display this—by default it is displayed. Select a date. Based on the date you select, the bandwidth graph will display from the beginning of the that month until the day that you selected.
    Click to display this. Select the date range for which you want to view the bandwidth graph for the server.
    Click on one of the following links to download the bandwidth usage report based on the format in which you would like to view it.
    Click the Day icon to view the bandwidth usage of the colocated server for the current day.
    Click the Current Month icon to view the bandwidth usage of the server for the current month. By selecting the 95th percentile check box, the graph will also display the 95th percentile usage of the colocated server.
    Click the Last Month icon to view the bandwidth usage of the server for the previous month. By selecting the 95th percentile check box, the graph will also display the 95th percentile usage of the colocated server.
    Click the Hide Graph icon to hide the display of graphs on this page.

    If you are using a data traffic billing model, you can view the expected usage of the current month. Based on this, you can predict if your server will incur a surcharge.

  3. Click the individual nodes to view bandwidth graphs for that particular node.

    You can perform the same tasks on individual node's bandwidth graph that you can perform on the aggregated bandwidth graph. This mainly involves viewing the 95th percentile, viewing graphs based on days or months, and downloading the bandwidth graph report in several formats.
