I am in the need of a good bandwidth monitoring graph that will alert me via email when I go over, say, 200GB of bandwidth, and maybe shut off my server.
I would prefer something free, but something that I have to pay for would probably do the trick as well.
Umm there isn't a script I know of but I'm sure with some custom programming you could do it. I'd have a simple bandwidth graphing utility (cricket, mrtg, whatever) graph the server and collect the monthly total, then you have a seperate script to check the data file and look to see if $monthlytotalgb is over 200, if it is do a shutdown -h now.
However it seems like a bad way of doing things.....
Haha, Yes, I am sure you are thinking this is on a server where I have clients.
Rest assured, this is on my personal server with nothing but Counterstrike: Source maps and my personal website.
Thanks, I'll try your suggestion out.
Then either run the conf file via screen or as a cron job. We use RTG for bandwidth graphing and a cron job runs every 5 minutes to tell clients if they are at or over a certain bandwidth level. Works. ;-)
