    [FEATURE REQUEST] please improve Disk Space Usage Warnings and Bandwidth Warnings

    I'd like to see enhanced configuration and reporting available in WHM for disk space usage and bandwidth quotas.

    In my current version of WHM (6.4.2), under

    server setup > tweak settings

    ... I can turn on or off the reporting for 'Disk Space Usage Warnings' using the check box.

    I'd like to see this reporting enhanced in the following ways:
    1. I can set one or more % levels where warnings I sent - eg. 80% (first warning), 95% (critical warning), and 100% (totally full warning!)
    2. On a per account basis I should have the option to decide to whom the warning gets sent
    3. For each % level where a warning is sent, I should be able to specify the default message that is sent (I'd include more advice about what to do).
    4. I'd even like to be able to specify whether or not to shut an account down when the max limit is reached.

    The same requests apply equally to bandwidth limit reporting.

    My 2c worth :)

    Hi,

    I have just had a couple of complaints about the disk space usage warning email.

    It would be nice if we could customise the email to be a little more polite, smae goes for all other automated emails sent.

    Kind Regards,

    Neil

    I'm still waiting + hoping! :)

    What really embarrasses me is when a client, or one of my clients' clients, knows before I do that, for example, their storage limit for their hosting account has been exceeded.

    So my client calls me up and say "I'm not getting any email" and it turns out that it's because his hosting account is maxed out.

    - Yes, sure, there's a space warning email sent when we're somewhere around 80-85% full.
    - Yes, sure, I could login to WHM every day and review quota limits for all clients

    But surely a better way to go is an instant notification to me the moment any account hits the maximum and things start to stop working for my client.

    I'd like WHM to help me be proactive, not reactive! :)
