    One of our clients is nearly maxing out our connection, making all other sites take up to 5 minutes to load a webpage.

    I don't know much about bandwidth with Linux. In Windows you can limit bandwidth per second, but all I can find on our Linux boxes w/ CPanel is per month limits.

    I have suspended this account many times, sometimes for days straight, and as soon as I unsuspend it the bandwidth shoots up to almost 1.5 Mb/s (we're temporarily only running off of a T1).

    What can I do to keep their site up but limit their bandwidth? Thanks.

    What is maxing out the bandwidth? Apache, FTP, etc?

    How can I check that?

    I quick check of the server status just revealed that the load was 70.21 (1 cpu). We have 2 CPUs, so it's actuall 35.something, but oh my god!

    So I looked into it and it's been trying to process that same client's log for a very logn time now and that's maxing out the CPU.

    I finally got emails from the server telling me about the high server load because of the logs but I'm not sure what to do about it. Thanks.

    Restarting the server took care of the load problem, but I still need some kidn of way to limit th ebandwidth of this client's site so ti doesnt' eat up our whole connection. How can I tell if it's apache/ftp/mysql/something else?

    hello

    You will probably be looking for something like sar

    i am not even positive what it stands for ( system account accounting report maybe )

    man sar

    something like sar -A will produce accounting stats over last 24 hrs or so.

    Of course you can use top or a similar tool, but that means you have to watch the server.

    Could it be that your client has simply out-grown shared hosting? Maybe you should talk to the client about a dedicated server?
