    I'm curious as to how others handle the descrepancy in Data transfer usage -- between what WHM shows to actual usage.

    I have seen where WHM shows 700 MB and yet, Bandmin shows 3.2 GB.

    For me it's starting to get a bit out of hand and looking for ideas. I've thought of setting up seperate access (for each account) to their own Bandmin stats and letting them know, that's what to go by. Lotta work though and hoping there is an easier alternative.

    BTW, I'm referring here to accounts using Dedicated IPs -- Reseller accounts especially.

    We've been finding not to trust much of anything built into WHM/CP. Here's data for 12/1-12/3 for one of our servers.

    Total: 2.35G

    In: 304M
    Out: 2.65G

    SNMP from Switch
    In: 399M
    Out: 2.91G

    We tend to trust the port traffic on the Cisco switch as calculated via SNMP, which is the same way our upstream providers calculate our usage. Of course, given the discrepancies in the values above, it makes it hard to be accurate with individual accounts (there's about a 40% variance in the noted values).
