View Full Version : monitoring clients bandwidth

03-23-2010, 04:02 PM

I want to monitor my various domains bandwidth usage and I would appreciate anyone giving me a pointer on better approach.

(a google search, for the terms I used, brought me little in the way of how to build this myself).

I suppose I could read the access log and compile what I need from that but; is there any advantage - and how - to getting the data with every db and file request form the server?

I want to compile stats of how much was used in terms of supplying file text (from the db) and how much was used for supply of images and how much was used in supply of dynamic page files.

Oh: I searched cpan too but none of the five results seemed to show how to do it directly from the usage. they all seemed to show the need to read the server logs.
