Hi,

Is there any way to see the traffic that is generated on the server per month?
I have a limit of 250 GB per month and I'd like to see how much I'm using.
I got a call that I was using more than I was supposed to. Maybe it has to do with the backup files that I have been downloading to store it on a external disk at home.

If there is a way to see an overview of each user and what the system used for traffic, that we be even better.
Something like:
user1 10 GB
user2 5 GB
user3 14 Gb
system 30 GB
Total: 59 GB

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.
It's great that we can see the total bandwidth used for the users.
I didn't know it was possible. Thanks for that!!!

Is it possible to see how much bandwidth was used by the system itself.
Like when I downloaded the backups locally with the root user through ftp.

That way, if I count what the users used and what the system used. I should have the amount used for everything.
It's because my dedicated server may only download 250 GB/month.


Thanks!!!

Hello :)

You could utilize third-party utilities such as iptraf to help monitor the total incoming/outgoing traffic to the server. You can search "iptraf" on our forums for more discussions about it.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks I will definitely check iptraf.

I still don't understand how the hosting firm can now how much traffic is being used in total (accounts + system)?

So for now I can assume that there is no way within WHM (without third-party tools) to see how much traffic has been used, even without details (just a total number)?

Thanks guys
