How much bandwidth does srcds use per person when it is connected? Reason being I am going through a self managed hosting provider and while I dont have a player limit I do have a monthly bandwith limit. So I'm trying to figure out what I can run on 200GB/MO.

i'd say about 4 player server for that max
i really cant see any server for css using 200GIG :/

I ran a server for my basement a long time ago for cs 1.3 at the time and it uses alot more than you would think. Full it used something like 250mb/hr but servers are not full 24/7

Is there any per player definate usage. Because right now I got a 14 person css server at most its in use 12 hrs per day. Full maybe 7 hrs a day. I got 200 gigs a mo with $0.89 overage per GB so I just need to know weather its safe for me to run this or not.

We need someone to show good stat logs for true info on this.

We run 2 CS:Source servers on one box.
1 is 18 player max
the other 28 player
18 player server is in use for about 10-14 hours a day
28 player server is in use for about 12-18 hours a day.

We used from 01/01/2005 -> 07/01/2005 (UK Dates) about 80Gb of traffic.

This averages out at about 1mb/s of traffic

Anything else just ask.
