measuring bandwidth without control panel

Posted by cws_mm, 01-03-2008, 04:01 PM
Hi All, I have DirectAdmin on my server but my customers have no need for it. My customers have no need to create databases, new email accounts, new users etc. etc. so I don't see the advantage of having this on my server. Is not having Directadmin worth the extra performance and administrative chores? Is there any way to measure and limit bandwidth on a shared hosting server without using a control panel? How much resources does DirectAdmin use? I heard it is not as much as CPanel but doesn't it slow down the server a little? Thanks.

DirectAdmin really doesn't use much, you won't have too much of a difference between running DA and running Apache, exim, bind, mysql by itself. You can use the Apache byte logs to measure bandwidth, it's fairly simple, limiting them to that bandwidth is where the challenge comes.

Yes, you can use iptables to measure bandwidth Check this article for more ref: http://www.linux.com/articles/50649
