Hello.

Im a newbie in Linux operating system, and was wondering if you can tell me in simple steps or step by step tutorial that works, how can I limit to a user, let's say he can transfer 20 GB per month?

Any program, script, as long as it is working and that it doesnt eat a lot of CPU and RAM would be fine.

Please.


Best regards, Martin.

Do you want to limit a specific service, like FTP downloads from this server or do you want to limit the traffic on a gateway server?

I want to limit the users traffic.

Like user 'example' is running a website from his folder, and let's say I wan't to give him 20 GB of traffic per month.

How would this easily be done? If you can.. :o

Best regards, Martin.

You can either do traffic limits like ISPConfig is doing them by analysing the logfiles for web, ftp and email traffic and resolve the user.

Or you can limit the traffic for ports on your network card, but this is not user specific.

I dont know if this feature is really OK. I have traffic limits for 200MB for my website, and total traffic is now of 319MB and I can still get to see it through mozilla firefox without any warning. I dont know what to check. Any ideas?
Thanks for your help.

Which action have you enabled in ISPConfig? Warning or site suspension?

Are the 319 MB shown in ISPConfig traffic stats for this site or in any other monitoring software?

I have suspension, and the data is reported by ispconfig. What should I look for? Because ispconfig reports the website as "suspended" and not active, but I can reach it with no effort with mozilla firefox...
Thanks for your time.

Maybe your browser cache? :confused:
Please post the output of ls -la /var/www/web<id> (or wherever ISPConfig creates the web sites on your system).

I deleted the browser cache and still could view the webpage. This is what i get with the command:

dan@alcon:~$ ls -la /var/www/web1

The permissions should be
dr-------- 8 root root 368 2005-12-20 23:47 .

instead of

drwxr-xr-x 8 dampalacios web1 368 2005-12-20 23:47 . if your site had been suspended by ISPConfig.

Many thanks
