    We have a client that has already used 818.867771 Megs of bandwidth this month! Is there a way to find out what script/page is causing this much BW usage? Also, what is the best way to reset this to 0?

    He's probably hosting a file for a site that can't afford to host there own files. I did that one time just out of curiosity, 200 meg file, I could barely reach cpanel the network was flooded so bad. I would check the diskusage of the account and see what the largest file is, plus awstats is an excelent way to see which file is being called the most..

    My website is a fairly simple affair and I have at least that amount of bandwidth going through it.

    I am NOT hosting any 200 mg files, but I do have almost 100 users who frequesnt it.

    I don't see why 818 mgs of bandwidth is so shocking I think thats probably not all that uncommon.

    My two cents

    Well, thanks for your 2 cents but he does not get that many visitors & his bandwidth jumped from 500 to over 800 megs in one day which is weird & not common for his site. That is why I asked the question. But seriously, thanks for the input.

    800 megs is nothing.

    Hey you never know maybe a link to his site was posted on slashdot or something.

    I was just trying to point out a option that had not been mentioned thus far.

    good luck on your hunt.

    Cheers
