Zoner would like to know what it means when a provider says "10GBe unmetered", or whatever the bandwidth limit might be. What does it mean to the provider, and what does it mean to the customer? He suggests that it could mean that the provider will place usage limits somewhere in the fine print of their terms and conditions opr acceptable use policy, or it could mean that the provider will provide "as is" networking which might potentially be over subscribed or too saturated at different times of the day or week to provide quality bandwidth. What does quality bandwidth actually mean to you? To Zoner it means that he can actually use the bandwidth he requires without added latency, be it for a single stream or his aggregate streams. He goes on to ask how he should monitor these latencies in order to figure out at which point, and when exactly, his "unmetered" connection is actually choked and or overloaded/oversubscribed? There's several questions posed here and he's looking for any input, tools or know-how/experience from our members.

It's a quick question posed by Haviv that leads to some saying how they have the combination of LSCache and Cloudflare's caching working fine, some questioning why you would want both, and others explaining how to get the combination working and what to watch out for. Is this something that you use or would try, or are there alternative caching mechanisms and combinations out there that would do a better job? What sort of traffic levels can this setup handle? Do we need to be cautious about resource usage? Are there other features in Cloudflare that might conflict? Share your expertise in the thread.
