Paper Usage--- The amount of waste paper and toner
usage seems to be increased this year, so IT wanted to calculate how much these
resources are utilized. According
to the PaperCut software,151,000 pages were printed in about 22 days, that is
lot and is really not environmentally friendly. Sam wants to work with ECC to reduce the amount of
printing. This research was not
done to prompt a switch to paying to print.
Suggestion to switch to having all printers
automatically set to duplex and you have to opt out to print single sided. This has not worked in the past because
several faculty members did not want to accept double-sided papers.
Bandwidth--- Upgraded from about 10 meg, last year went
to 70 meg, which is what we currently have. We have the capability to “burst” to 100 meg during high
usage times. High usage starts at
about 6 pm and goes until about 2 am.
We usually never fall below about 20 meg usage. IT has investigated a number of options
to fix the problem . This is
difficult because regardless of how much we increase, it will undoubtedly be
used. Also, 100 meg is the limit
that most of our current hardware can handle, so this would cause additional
problems with further upgrades. Compared to the 12 schools in the ACS, we are
about 4th or 5th, so the Hendrix internet is ok compared
to the other schools.
When you use an Ethernet cord, you have up to
100 meg. When you are on wireless
you have 54 meg, but that is shared among all of the people on the wireless
network. So wireless should not be
your primary internet source, buy an Ethernet cord.
Problem of “bandwidth hogs.” There are ways to run programs that
allow you to take more bandwidth than one computer necessarily needs. IT hasn’t looked into this/ doesn’t
track the internet usage of individual IP addresses, but it is a violation of
the college’s computer use policy.
This means that if you are caught, you would be blocked from the Hendrix
if you have a question. Do not
assume that they know about the problem.
