The server will automatically generate an email to clients regarding their bandwidth usage when certain criteria have been triggered. The triggers for the bandwidth usage email are set at 80%, 85%, 90%, 93%, 95, 97%, 99% and finally 100% over disk usage quota.
The emails serve as a guide for clients to be aware of their bandwidth usage and to take action before it becomes a problem or to investigate issues which may be responsible for higher bandwidth usage.
If a clients bandwidth usage reaches 100%, the client site will display a bandwidth exceeded page and will require the client to either upgrade their account or wait until the start of the next month when the bandwidth limits are reset.
An example of the Bandwidth Usage Warning email is below.
The domain yourdomain.com.au (account name) is about to exceed their bandwidth limit (4000.00/5000.00 Megs)
yourdomain.com.au (account name) has reached 80% of their bandwidth limit (4000.00/5000.00 Megs).
