I need to know how many data my server transfer over a month.

I know from my control panel only my average Mbit/s daily that is: 26Mb/s.

Doing some calc:

26Mbit/s = 3.25 Mbyte/s

  • Daily usage: 86400 (seconds) * 3.25 (Mbyte/s) = 280'800 Megabyte
  • Month usage: 30*280800 = 8'424'000 Megabyte

So each month my server transfer 8000 GB (8 TB). Is it correct?

That's about right. Your monthly usage at 26Mb/s would be 8.541 terabytes.

Wolfram Alpha is very useful for calculations like these. You simply type "26Mb/s for 1 month" as the search term and get the following output:

Input interpretation:

26 Mb/s (megabits per second) × 1 month

Result

6.833×10^7 Mb (megabits)

Unit conversions

68.33 Tb (terabits)
6.833×10^13 bits
8.541 TB (terabytes)

    Just a quick tip: if you add the unit you want to convert to, it will do all the hard work for you: just input "26Mb/s for 1 month to GB" as the search term. – Diego Agulló Oct 31 '12 at 6:17
