how much bandwidth is used when mining?
do any of you have an idea?


Let's say 200 mhash/s uses 20kb/s or maybe more?

~650MH/s here, maybe 3kb/s being used on average.

ETA: Probably very relevant to note how many mining "threads" are active on the rig. 2, in my case, but Phoenix 2 dumps all the work in the same work queue.

ETA2: After reading TRL's post below -- noticed something was wrong with my numbers. Realized I'm running Skype + the BTC daemon which probably contributed to higher bandwidth use in my guesstimate (just looked at total bandwidth consumption on computer over 10 seconds or so). 140/24 = 2.333MB/hr, /60=.0388/min, /60=.00064814/second, *1000=.65KB/s -- Either way, it's probably insignificant consumption for most.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

thanks a lot for the quick reply.

I was thinking about this because I have a slow internet connection. only 1mbit Sad
i guess its all right to browse and download while mining if it uses less than 10kb/s

  Hi Eda,

  Made a thread about that exact same issue here Smiley  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61353.0
 
  Basically if I did my math right, you'd be looking at about 140MB/day (counting both uploads and downloads) for two 5970s (4 miner instances going so ~1.5GH/sec).  You can probably extrapolate your #s from there.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits
