    Hello there.

    I have some questions about the word 'bandwidth'.
    In my knowledge, simply bandwidth is a speed rate of transfering data.
    So it's unit should be bps, kb/sec or so on..
    But in WHM, it's unit is MB.

    What I want to do is below two thing.

    1. LIMIT capability of data transfering
    ex) 100Mb per day. (if exceed, it will blocked)

    2. LIMIT speed of transfering data
    ex) can transfer data by 100 kb/sec


    For first thing, should I use another apache module like mod_throttle ? --> It seems this module not installed by CPanel.

    And what's the correct meanning of the word 'bandwidth' in WHM?
    If I have a wrong definition of the workd 'bandwidth' please let me know.


    Thank you for the reading.

    God bless you!

    mod_throttle should help you accomplish what you are trying to accomplish.

    Your definition of bandwidth seems spot on to me. It is the "width" of your communication "band" (a.k.a pipe). More bandwidth equates to the capacity for higher transfer speeds.

    Thank youf for the answer, but I can't fully understand your word.

    >mod_throttle should help you accomplish what you are trying to accomplish.

    Should I must use mod_throttle ?
    I mean, Is there any other way to accomplish that with the things installed by Cpanel.

    > It is the "width" of your communication "band" (a.k.a pipe).
    Can you explain this more?
    Because I can't speak english well, this line is hard to understand for me.

    > More bandwidth equates to the capacity for higher transfer speeds.
    If it is, what is the meaning 'bandwidth exceed'?
    I think it will be helpful if you define 'bandwidth' more in detail.
    Please let me know the UNIT of the word 'bandwidth' in Cpanel.


    Thank You!

    Re: Re: Re: about the word 'bandwidth'

    There is no way I know of to limit the bandwidth and daily quota for user accounts without using mod_throttle.

    If you are talking about cPanel, I believe cPanel uses 'bandwidth exceeded' (I did not check the exact wording before replying) to represent 'transfer quota exceeded'. Your usage of the term bandwidth is more correct than cPanels usage. Maybe someone will put in a bugzilla enhancement request to have the wording changed so it is less confusing.
