Bandwidth

This function shows the monthly bandwidth usage, traffic for the day the function is accessed, and traffic information for the entire year. The function is intended to allow you to monitor the heaviest traffic times for your site as well as to help you to decide whether you should purchase more bandwidth for your website.

The information is displayed over 3 sets of graphs and a status bar. The status bar shows the percentage of monthly bandwidth that has been used. The graph below displays the traffic for today while the next graph shows the bandwidth usage for the entire year.

The bandwidth information is divided into six categories:

• HTTP (web traffic)

• POP (receiving email)

• IMAP (receiving email)

• FTP (file transfer)

• SMTP (sending email)

• All

Note: The All category, displayed in green, provides the combined total of all the aforementioned categories.

The next area displays pie graphs showing bandwidth usage by domain on a monthly basis. The pie charts show the proportion of monthly bandwidth used by each domain.

° When you click the domain name on the left side of the screen, cPanel displays a series of graphs showing the amount of bandwidth used by each type of traffic: HTTP, POP, IMAP, FTP, and SMTP.

Note: You may notice discrepancies between information WHM provides and the information log processing program (such as AWStats, Webalizer, or Analog) provide. To learn more about this, read our documentation about bandwidth discrepancies.

Below these graphs is a chart showing the proportion of bandwidth used by each type of traffic for each day of the month.

° To see a graphic representation of this data, click the day number on the left side of the chart.

Note: In certain circumstances, you may notice discrepancies between the data in bandwidth graphs and that displayed in other areas of cPanel. To learn more about this, read our documentation about how bandwidth graphs are generated.
