In WHM - List Accounts - Fetch CSV, you can see the account data, but where can I find this file on the server? Thank you.

/var/cpanel/users

Most of these data are taken from the files in the /var/cpanel/users directory. There is one file for each cPanel account, and the data are stored in the file in plain-text format.

Quota information is taken directly from the operating system's quota system. You can use the quota command to see quota information. For example:

Code:
# quota -v someacct
Replace "someacct" with a valid cPanel account name. This command will show you the quota that is set and the current usage.

The WebHost Manager actually caches the quota data, in order to avoid having to update it for every account every time you view the list of accounts, and the cache is updated every four hours, so changes may not appear instantly.

Also, normally you should not need to manually edit the files in /var/cpanel/users, but if you ever do, make sure to run the following command afterward:

Code:
# /scripts/updateuserdomains
This command reads the /var/cpanel/users files and updates the users cache.

Actually, I want to find the cPanel ID which over 10GB disk space or 100GB bandwidth on a server. Is there a command to do this? Where is the quota data cache stored?

Thank you.

I'm unclear on what you're after. Is the List Accounts page not working as expected?
6 links below List Accounts link in the Account Information section of your WHM, is the link to View Bandwidth Usage.

Between the two you should be able to see who's using what.

Sorry. Everything on cPanel works great. :cool:

I just want to create a script to monitor user accounts and sent email to me everyday. Thanks.
