Excessive use makes A.M. Costa Rica unavailable

Excessive bandwidth kept some readers from seeing A.M. Costa Rica Monday.

Bandwidth is the electronic signals that bring the newspaper to the home computer or tablet. When the limit is exceeded the company that owns the server declines to serve up any more pages.

There was a similar problem last week.

A handful of Internet sites are responsible for capturing vast amount of bandwidth. These sites are in Costa Rica, California and even Germany.

Technicians at the server said that they have used about 100 gigabytes of bandwidth this month.

Typically the newspaper uses about 250 gigbytes each month, and it is hard to say what the sites were doing in the newspaper.

There also were lengthy sessions with users from China, India and the Ukraine.
