Quoting pics and bandwidth



Log in to see fewer ads
Does quoting posts with pics use up valuable "bandwidth", which seemed to be lacking a couple of days ago?
Anything we can do to help?

AFAIK, pics are referenced from an external site (photobucket for me) and don't pass through this site.

My favorite is when someone quotes a series of pics in one post, then only adds "Yeah, that" or "+1".

It has to affect capacity. Once I start to run into these repeat photo's for no constructive reason I just move on.

When a browser requests an image, if it was referenced prior a webserver configured to the IETF spec would say " status 304 - content not modified from last request" and so the browser would just duplicate data.

In the real world, the server may say "hey here it is" hte first time around, and the browser would say "i'm not even gonna ask for that again" and simply display the same data again. Sometimes the browser says "oh, hey, you want this file here it is but don't cache it or repeat it" and the browser will need to redownload the file again. This typically only happens on secure sites, where you don't want the browser to cache any of the data... not an issue here on RFC

This all happens at the application layer of the OSI model - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_mo...lication_Layer and has nothing to do wtith the bad gateway/502 errors folks have been experiencing. These errors are due to a network configuration issue at the edge of the RFC provider's setup with the actual RFC webserver/db server/etc just on the other side of it from the rest of us. That all happens at the Network Layer (layer 3) of the OSI model.



And this has been your Networking 101 lesson for the day. Happy Christmas.
