    Is there any way I can see the peak bandwidth usage? I'm interested in finding out if it's worth having my current 1Gbps or if I should save some pennies and downgrade to 100Mbps.

    Hello,


    While not specifically peak bandwidth usage you can view your current and historic bandwidth usage within WHM at

    Home>>Account Information>>View Bandwidth Usage

    We also have documentation on this interface here: View Bandwidth Usage

    Thanks, but that shows the data transferred not the bandwidth usage (even though you call it that way).

    Maybe I should say network card usage? As I said in my first post, I'm interested in finding out if it's worth paying for the 1GBps connection I currently have or if I would do alright with 100Mbps.

    I would assume you have a Dedicated server ? doesn't your provider provide you BW graphs ??
    munin should do the trick

    Hello

    @dalem is correct, munin is one of the suggestions in the link provided as well.


    Thank you,
