    On my cpanel server the /var/cpanel/bandwidth directory is taking up 7.4G

    The largest files are .hour files, the largest of those is 2mb, with many more about 1.2mb
    there are around 3,200 .hour files and about 61,549 files total.

    I have already removed all accounts suspended for more than a year and removed all bandwidth logs associated with those accounts (and all bandwidth logs with nouser or nogroup)

    There are about 2100 users on this server (with a disk quota of about 100mb a piece). Even with that many users I feel this directory is rather large.

    Anyone have any ideas how to reduce the size down?

    Hello :)

    The following guide was provided back when cPanel 11.25 was released but it should be helpful in this case:

    cPanel Bandwidth Tracking Update

    Thank you.
