    Hi. My server used to be able to send files at like 300kbps, now i can only download anywhere from 25-25k from the server, same with my customers, 2 of them have already complained, i'm guessing an account is whoring all the bandwidth, is there a way to check which account it is (speedwise, not data transfer wise), and then do something about it? please help. thanks.

    Maybe this is a stupid question...

    But isn't that like saying "You can use 500gigs a month! But only up to 50k at one time"? If the customer is abusing, then there alloted bandwidth would fill up quick and it would be obvious...

    Seems a bit stupid from a customer standpoint...I think I would look elsewhere, where I can use what I pay for?

    Just a q?

    sounds like an oversold server to me, but I don't know nothing :D

    I would only limit them to 100k/s
    Plenty fast for almost anything.

    But, you do have a good point, well even if I don't limit it, how can I check which users are using most of it? Thanks.

    It should be really easy...

    Log in to WHM, and look on the menu

    See the one that says "View Bandwidth Usage"...

    That shows amt of data transfer, I want to be able to see who is using the most CURRENT bandwidth (throughput).
    Not to mention that I have another ticket open because the view bandwidth usage on my server shows NOTHING.

    I've seen some posts of yours on other forums advertising nearly 200 GB bandwidth for $30/month. If you cannot provide that amount and need to cap someone so that they will not be able to use that much, then you might want to think about lowering the amount of bandwidth you offer.

    Anyways, with home broadband speeds today, 100k download speed for each site hosted is not really that fast to most people - Just a thought ;).

    Hi,

    I don’t believe there is a clear way of doing this… The only ways I can easily think of is:

    a) Look at peoples bandwidth, they should stick out like a soar thumb. Also check out www.yourdomain.com/bandwidth/
    b) Also in WHM you have “Apache Status” this should give you some sort of insight to who is hogging the server at the time.
