This question already has an answer here:
I've recently started hosting a handful of nodes on my home internet connection and mining to a pool from these machines, it seems as though my internet connection has become a lot slower and a lot of data has been used up.
It's possible that this is simply an issue with my ISP, but I wanted to find out if anyone knows the amount of data uploaded/downloaded when hosting a full node and when mining now that RingCT has been implemented. Have bandwidth and data transfer requirements increased?
I'm aware of the 'limit' command in monerod, which I have set to 100, but sometimes it still seems like the Monero nodes and mining processes are taking up a lot of bandwidth.
