    Hi,

    I would like to have better server bandwidth monitorning, and would like to know what other people use.

    When I check the bandwidth usage in WHM > Account Information > View Bandwidth usage, I can see the one server has about 2GB total bandwidth usage.

    Yet, the Cacti graphs that run on the switch port indicates 13GB bandwidth usage.

    I know WHM only shows each user's bandwidth usage, but not the server's own (i.e. cPanel updates, backups, etc) - and I need that info as well.

    I have thought of installing ntop on the cPanel box, which will even tell me where / what / who has used what bandwidth, but would rather have something which is a bit more "professional". Any suggestions?

    Hello,


    We use Munin, which is part of a default install. This may be what you are looking for, please enable it and if it not what you need let me know:

    To enable Munin:
    WHM >> cPanel >> Manage Plugins

    I hope that gets you fixed up. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    I already have munin installed, but it doesn't give me detailed stats like ntop would. and I can't get ntop installed either, so I'm looking for some alternative solutions where possible.
