Agreed with Ty. Tabish, think of IPs like cat's lives. We have more than just 9 of them, but they're definitely finite and the number is less than 50 blocks of IPs. If we exhaust those 50 it can take weeks, or even months, to get new blocks of IPs.
 
And these IPs are for the whole company....

Here are my thoughts on that.

A new version of Ares is released every 1-3 weeks. That version will contain our current IPs. There is always a chance AM will upgrade, because there is always a new version out. And when they do, there is an extremely high chance their new version will contain our current IPs, even if we rotate them right now based on the assumption that they should be upgrading soon.

Do you have any evidence to suggest they are about to upgrade? If not, then I think we should only rotate based on network penetration of the newer versions and our overall effectiveness on the version they are actually using to test. We will probably eat a bad week when they do upgrade, but even if we rotated every 2-3 weeks it probably wouldn't change that too much. If IPs weren't so valuable then I would be for rotating them all the time.

        Ty,

         

        Just wanted to make sure my comment below regarding the IP rotation for Ares didn't get lost in the email.

        AM should be upgrading very shortly to the latest version of Ares. Would we be prepared for that?

        5 fails.

        2 close fails w/ 6 real for Mika - Grace Kelly on Ares and Limewire.

        2 fails on eMule. 1 of them was on our server. We were having issues last week of our servers sometimes not hitting.

        1 fail on Ares for Daddy Yankee - Rompe because it's a popular PM2 project.

         

        Ty, should we look into rotating our IPs for the new version of Ares? AM is still using v1.9.1 and I'm expecting them to upgrade in the very near future. If they upgrade, they'll upgrade to the latest version, 2.0.9, where we don't hit.
