I work for an internet radio show. We rent a dedicated server with a limit of 2tb of bandwidth. For the past two months our host has been telling us we have been going over our bandwidth limit...when i checked we still had a lot left. I replied to the host explaining that they where wrong (a friend who rents servers is my host) However this month we are 100 gigs away from our limit and as we host podcast and do a live stream this will not do.

I viewed the raw logs and i can't really decipher them.

I would be willing to privately share the logs with someone if they believe they can help.

Thanks!

does your host not allow you to purchase more bandwidth?

Of course they do. The problem is that i do not believe the bandwidth ussage is real. The bandwidth usage went up 120% in a month, we didn't get that popular.

Why do you not use a remote bandwidth checker, That way you can see if your host is correct :P

I might.

I have a question we are currently on managed hosting and i was considering going to dedicated unmanaged, is it extremely hard to manage your own server? I do a lot hardware and I'm a very fast leaner.

If you are experienced enough in the server management, then yes, it'd be better and cheaper for you.

Do you have any server management skills? server admin skills ect ect...

It's hard if you do not know anything about it, You could learn fast. But you know the cost would be a lot cheaper :P

I work for a high school as the system admin, but that is a windows server and all i do is run the network.

Is it hard to learn or could it easily be done?

In my opinion it is not hard to learn, You already have some skills on servers so you should be ok.

You can always ask for help here if you need it my friend :P
