    I searched through old threads but found 404s on the apache mod links. One mod just limits the total bandwidth for time not the MPS.

    I added mod_bandwidth but it didn't make any difference, not sure if it's broken or just not effective.

    I added this and it says it was added:

    Added /scripts/setbwlimit --domain=domain.com --limit=25000000

    which I would think limits the account to 25 mps but they are still pushing 100 mps.

    I'm I missing something or is there a better way to do this?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, I read that. Can you explain what mod_bandwidth does?

    It's primarily used to restrict the number of simultaneous connections per VirtualHost. Some raw documentation on it is found at:

    Thank you.

    I'm so confused, so there is no solution to limit MBPS for an account? You have to do this with the switch? Most switches just have 10/100/1000 what if you need to limit it to 25 mbps for example?
