    Hi i have 120GB bandwidth per month and i have some website that doesn't have lot visitors but my bandwidth finish and it's strange also i have installed vnstat and i get this for only one day:
    but i think ispconfig doesn't show correct bandwidth for websites:
    it shows total 1655 MB that is wrong absolutely my total transfer was 908 MB for a few hours but how does it possible total transfer of websites from setup ispconfig be 1656 MB
    and it doesn't reset bandwidth per month?
    so how can i see real bandwidth of each website?
    and it seems it doesn't block website when use more than limit

    Maybe you used the most bandwith for mail or os-updates?

    Mail server has separate server
    also database has separate server
    and i didn't any update
    is there any module for apache to calculate all bandwidth and it be online?
    for example if i download 10MB from my website it doesn't show in ispconfig

    The traffic is calculated using the apache/nginx log once a day during the cron_daily-job (00:30).

    vnstats shows you counters on your network interface, which as Florian indicated may very well not be website traffic, and hence would not show on your web server/websites stats. 2/3 of your 908MiB was RX, ie. received by your server, which could be it downloading something (eg. OS updates), receiving unwanted traffic (eg. ping flood), or it could simply reside on a chatty shared network.

    To identify the traffic, if you have an ip firewall in place you might be able to get a little more info from your counters (iptables -L -n -v) and/or logs; or you could install tools to monitor it (google will find more, but a quick search shows: http://www.slashroot.in/find-network-traffic-and-bandwidth-usage-process-linux).
