In this case, it was probably that clang-devel, llvm-devel, and lldb-devel were updated, and this produced many large binaries (six 900MB binaries for clang-devel; seven 750MB binaries for llvm-devel; two 275MB binaries for lldb-devel).

What would you suggest move, where?

Last I looked into moving the Xserves to a data center, colocation was extremely expensive.

My Internet connection is not consumer-class. If it were a consumer connection, it would be much faster and much cheaper, but ISPs does not allow running servers on consumer connections, so it is an expensive and slow business-class connection.

As I said, I plan to increase the speed of the connection; the ISP has changed their offering since I originally set it up and it should be possible now to get a faster connection for the same price.
