Just got a weird case. There's a customer who has a bandwidth limit of 150GB per month and according to cPanel he's used up about 122GB of it already this month but according to awstats which has run today he's using about 100GB. Webalizer confirms this as well.

Sure - I guess he could have spent 20GB bandwidth through FTP, IMAP, POP3, but I can't see any of that in the bandwidth meter. Is there anyplace where you're able to check the logs for different protocols and bandwidth usage? I know there's the "bandwidth" in cPanel but it all looks green to me lined with red color (http).

Any idea where to look?
