    I have vps and according to my WHM all the website that I have hosted in my server has only used 32Gig bandwidth but according to my solusVM my server has used more than 900GB bandwidth and everyday it uses more than 50GB of bandwidth.

    I have switched off all the updates from Main >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences they are all set to never.

    What might be eating up all the bandwidth? Is there module for WHM to show complete bandwidth statistics with TCP/IP?

    I'm just guessing of course but are any of your accounts setup here:
    WHM > Security Center > Apache mod_userdir Tweak

    Thanks @Infopro, your solution worked. In more than 24 hours less than 3GB of bandwidth used.
