How much outbound (transmit) bandwidth is available on a typical KnownHost VPS? When backing up to Amazon AWS S3, what kind of cap should we put on the transmit to be a polite VPS neighbor? I currently limit to 1 Megabyte per second via curl --limit-rate 1M Which equals 1GB per 15 minutes. Can I go faster? Amazon supposedly has a receive limit near 8MB/s I suspect most people do not rate limit their backups and you can kind of tell when all the containers are saturating the link at once early in the morning.
