OSM Tile servers

Lynn Deffenbaugh

Just thought I'd post an interesting comment from one of the OSM admin team:

The tile.openstreetmap.org CDN is at breaking point.
We now frequently push more than 3Tb per second of traffic, with over
22000 requests per second/
We are reaching the limit of what our current stack/config can handle.
So, if you're using OSM's main tile servers, please do NOT do massive downloads of tiles.  We don't want APRSISCE/32 to be blocked for everyone.

If you want to download large areas of tiles for offline use, you can set up a Configure / Map / Tile Set pointing to my current OSM tile server.  It's slow, but it'll eventually deliver your tiles.

PS.  Note that my ports 6360 and 14160 current deliver OSM tiles from b.tile.openstreetmap.org.  If you have a tileset specifying one of these ports, please consider changing it to 14171 if you can stand the lag.
