    HI,

    Is there anything built into cpanel WHM that can warn me when my server transfer reaches a certain amount? I have a limited amount of bandwidth each month through my collocation center and overages are expensive. I'm hoping there is way the server can warn me when approaching x amount of transfer or if there is a sudden huge burst of bandwidth use.

    Other linux options are fine too, but I have not found anything yet and would hate to install something if cpanel already does this and I am missing it. I can of course login and look at total bandwidth, but I am lazy and want the server to tell me stuff :)

    Cheers,
    TR

    you should look into vnstat monitor, once installed you can have a page to view and also set it up to email you daily reports of usage (daily, weekly, monthly and overall usage).

    Then you'd just have to read your email. Might also have an option to warn after it hits X amount, haven't really dug into it that deep, I just use it for a quick command line check once in awhile.

    thanks! It was super easy to setup compared to MRTG which does not give me data in as useful of a format either. Haven't looked into warnings yet, but I am sure I can hack something in there.

    you're welcome, and if you can't get what you need from that just PM me, I'm sure I can custom code something for you there (although I'm pretty sure you can get what you need from vnstat itself).

    Can I install Munin in one domain hosting account and use it to monitor all our servers in our racks at the same data center?

    Thanks,
    John
