VPS usage when tunneling to a Dedicated Server
I found a couple DDoS-Protected VPS's, but am curious how much do they eat up for GRE tunneling?
For example, BuyVM has a plan of 128mb for only $15/yr. If I find a dedicated server in the same vicinity and do a tunnel, the latency would should be fine, thus the tunnel would be ideal. The problem I have is I am not sure if 128mb is enough. Does this all depend on the amount of data being pass through the server? Would it most likely increase CPU usage instead of ram? I'm just not sure what kind of specs to look for, for a GRE tunneling only VPS.
Sorry for the all the questions, just trying to grasp what would work the best.
If it helps, the dedicated server will host a multiplayer
nodejs game with around 1000 players (Websocket connections, 3-5 messages per 20 seconds or so) -- and run a small forum.
Appreciate any insight, thank you
