bandwidth monitoring
« on: October 05, 2006, 03:44:46 AM »
We own a dedicated server on Lunar Pages, and want to monitor the bandwidth usage on our server. We have looked at the Bandwidth Monitoring under Webmin -> Networking, but that is showing reports of only 2 days, which are incomplete as well. Also, the Logwatch reports don't have any information about bandwidth usage.

Thanks, Sharad

Are you on a Linux machine? Do you have Cpanel? Let me know and I'll see what I can do  :D

Hi Sharad,

Webmin uses unreliable method of bandwidth accounting and usually fails to monitor even small amounts of traffic. I don't recommend to use it. Please take a look on other sollutions to monitor the bandwith usage. For example, you can do that using iptables.

I hope this helps.

I have good news for you. All dedicated customers now have live bandwidth graphs via their CAP.  Please try this and let us know how it is.

Have a good one!

That's funny. I never heard of this before. I guess I just overlooked it? Thanks.

I don't see any bandwidth monitoring page on my CAP... What should be the path to it?

Are you on a dedicated plan? The link to the bandwith stats is available from the front page in the CAP for dedicated plans.

I hope this helps.

Ah sorry, I'm on a VPS plan. I'll head over to the correct forum. Sorry about that.
