    Hi Mike,

    Can the software be improved to allow feeders to view their Total Data Usage ( Feeding into FR24 ) in their "Account" page in FR24 ?

    What is the typical download data volume per month? The box obviously is mainly uploading but there must still be download ack packets sent.
    Minimal to the point of not noticeable. I'm on a 8Mbps/1Mbps ADSL line and the max out from my Pi feeding both FA and FR is about 18kbps. I'm in Sydney and have a fairly good (reliably 200nm and up to 300nm) view in all directions. I currently am using between 60 to 80Mb per day feeding both.

    The data varies by location and amount of traffic received from aircraft.

    In a very busy area with good range, the upload maybe 30MB per 24 hours.

    Netlimiter is a useful, free utility to measure the actual data volume.

    How much data traffic is sent to FR24?

    Hi,

    I'm feeding data to FR24 via Virtual Radar Server and the Flightradar24 feeding software.

    Is there a way to find out how much data I send to Flightradar24 during a day, week or month?

    On the Flightradar24 feeding software I see this info

    Network: OK [0.00MB/0.01MB]

    What does this mean?
Working...
