The bandwidth interface uses graphical representations to showcase the bandwidth usage. Details of bandwidth usage over a particular period of time is displayed in each graph. In six different categories, information about the bandwidth is displayed in every graph:-
In bandwidth calculation, only bandwidth of sent messages is recorded, not the POP3 or IMAP (received) messages. With this information, one can monitor the heaviest traffic times for his or her website. It also helps to make the decision about purchasing additional bandwidth.
The allotted bandwidth for an account can be changed by this particular interface. The amount of data transferred by a certain server is measured by the bandwidth. For every account on the server, one must set a certain bandwidth limit as per requirement. For example, more bandwidth is necessary for hosting a video that only hosting a blog, so it should be set accordingly.
Often we can notice differences between information about bandwidth which is provided by WHM and the information which is provided by some log processing programs such as AWStats, Webalizer or Analog Stats).
In order to change the bandwidth limit for an account, first, the account which is desired to be modified has to be selected. After the selection of the account, details about that particular account is displayed by WHM:
|Start Date||10 Jan 18 08:30|
Information that displays when an account is selected from the Account Selection List[The account’s quota, determined by the account’s package is referred by the ‘Disk Limit’ setting.]
Only for once in a day, that is between midnight and 6:00 am, the bandwidth is checked by the system. As a result, changes made in the bandwidth limit during other time of the day may not get into effect immediately.
Although we should keep it in mind that suspension and limiting bandwidth are two different things altogether. While the system automatically initiates limits if it exceeds the bandwidth limit an automatically removes it at the beginning of the month, by suspending an account one allows the system to impose certain limitations and it remains like that unless the account is unsuspended by that person. The suspension is not an automatic process.
