I agree on this, new look does look nice but it is unusable if you have like +100 domains on a server.

yes, the old one is better.. with the new "View Bandwidth Usage" you must scroll a long page to check all accounts bandwidth usage.

it's better if user can have option which interface/design of "View Bandwidth Usage" they want to use.

or

for the first page show the old "View Bandwidth Usage" page, then if user want to know more detail about an account bandwidth usage, user just click on the domain/username then (s)he will redirected to the new "View Bandwidth Usage" page with that domain/username bandwidth usage info.

I too vote to put in the OLD "VIEW BANDWIDTH". Please put it back in, the new one looks very nice but not useful in detecting heavy users..... :mad:

What would you like to see done with this in cPanel 10.0 ... please be specific. Html examples are always appricated.
I personally like the new idea with the bar graph showing bandwidth used as a percentage of what's allowed rather than just a fixed figure, but the bar color is too close to the color around it. I just changed the bg.gif in my custom skin to red which makes it easy to just scroll down the page for a quick view of usages, but the bg.gif is used for more than just that bar. It would be better if the bar had it's own image in a color easier to see.

The new method does have a lot more scrolling, but it is easier to quickly check bandwidth used based on percentage.

I posted here ---> http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1377

As a design, NEW one is very nice, however what if you have 400-500 accounts or more?
You have to scroll up/down, and it's very hard to view/compare all accounts. <--- Right now, sorry to say... but useless/can't use it.
*Old one is much much better and practical.

Maybe option for choosing display styles.

::Addition::

Creating a New Account with MegaBytes Bandwidth Limit.
Bandwidth Usage shows with Gig display. It's contradicting.

It should be calculated with MegaBytes.
*I mean both Meg & Gig display needed.

Thanks.

### One account = One line. 1 line/account without space between accounts ###

For example:
500 accounts/server::

1 line/account ---> 500 lines

2 lines/account ---> 1,000 lines

3 lines/account ---> 1,500 lines

6 lines/account(spaces included) ---> 3,000 lines <--- Right now!

In addition: If the accounts have subdomains...you know...

It's clear that it was designed on less accounts test server. :D :D :D
New design is for 5 accounts!

:eek: Oh,

1). main page ---> /http://whm.jp/showbw.jpg <--- Please click...
(Old one: you can add new style table with 4 Corners ---> customers will feel like new... :D )

2). detail page ---> Details
(here, you can put New style one. :D )
Maybe, if you click on domains, you'll see the details.

One way to reduce the scrolling would be to put the limit and total usage on the same line as the bar graph, like /http://www.premierwebsitesolutions.ca/cpforum/proposed.gif.
That looks good to me :) Maybe with a little bit of the space removed to condense the display even more.

I like the idea of being able to sort the results as well.

It would also be nice if you could show/hide columns as well. For example, I don't really need the GB total when I already see the MB totals. Same with total Bandwidth and % bandwidth used. This way I can view the results without having to scroll laterally on a small display.

And if we are going to return to the days of colored lines in this report (which is a fine idea) there NEEDS to be a legend about what the colors mean. In the old style, I got questions all the time about what Orange and Yellow highlighting meant since it wasn't immediately obvious.

Many of the comments in this thread could also be applied to the Disk Quota screen, too.

Nice. Me like :)
Yes.. this, along with a slight addition of perhaps a changing color bar?

In the percentage used, instead of having a single color bar, I would have that bar
break into 2 or 3 bars, with green, yellow and red signifying the level of usage
and thus giving a very clear and immediate warning.

Yes! you captured my exact thoughts on this one!
It would be interesting if cPanel will pull that design in. It will certainly be an improvement.
