    CPU: CELERON-D 347 3.06GHZ
    Ram: 2GB
    Hard Drive: 80GB
    Bandwidth: 2000GB/MONTH


    For proxy sites. I was getting about 10k in traffic on my other proxies without even trying... and I was using a VPS with 512 megs and it constantly was restarting lighttpd

    I'm assuming you are referring to web proxies as opposed to HTTP/SOCKS. Do you know what the bottleneck was on your VPS (CPU, RAM, Disk I/O)? If you still have your VPS you can execute "vmstat -S M 2" and it will show your resource usage every two seconds. You should either read up on vmstat or you can post the output here and I'd be happy to explain it to you. It's easier to find bottlenecks with this command than "top", IME. My post assumes you are using Linux. If you are using Windows, my post is completely useless and you can ignore it.

    "vmstat" has been around for a while. I just looked at its man pages and it's all the way from 1994. "top" is good but I think for bottlenecks "vmstat" is a better choice.

    How many proxy sites are you running? Also, if you don't mind me asking, which host offers that plan? I'm currently with techentrance but I think the RAM is throttled somehow, if that makes any sense. My sites got a hell of a lot more traffic on previous (yet unreliable) hosts. When I moved to this host, I get great uptime and all but the sites aren't doing well at all, even though I'm promoting them more than I ever have in the past.
