DC Saying Actual Usage Is More Than Average Reports
Nov 4, 2007
I have some small colo in an a DC that I have actual transfer basis on each server. Now they give me MRTG graphs and they say they go by what the switch reports for when they bill me. I haven't had an issue until this month when one of my servers which I only have one TB with was reported using 1372GB on their switch.
Now on my MRTG graphs it reported the monthly graph as the following:
Average In: 2360.8 kb/s (2.4%) 763.855996 GB
Average Out: 471.7 kb/s (0.5%) 152.6205485 GB
This reports under 1TB, so I thought that I was okay on my usage. Am I wrong in thinking that the average usage and actual usage should be very similar? I figured since MRTG takes how much you transfer every 5 minutes and averages that over 300 seconds to find the rate that it would report basically the same average usage as my actual usage.
One friend I host sites for is reporting 492MB in WHM, but running DU reports 5.4GB for just one site!!! I've had the DC run Quotafix, but it's still not correct. The site is drupal and DC said they can't even list the tmp folder for that account. Any suggestions so I don't loose $45/month in extra charges? I have no clue how many months this is been going on, but it's costing me allot it seems.
I would like to know what are the kernel values for an RPM kernel.. I mean, I have the latest 2.6.x kernel running on a RHE 4 system, my question.. Is there any way to know the actual kernel values (drivers, options, etc)?
Same as when we write a phpinfo file (that shows libraries, etc) to know php values..
i have to reload a page several times. at least once. the templates show up fine, but the actual images and contents do not show up unless i reload the page....this is evident during peak hours but not during normal hours.....
I host a website for a customer that performs accounting functions for a variety of clients and produces daily/weekly reports for these clients. He wants to be able to provide a link on his website with the customer number and password for customers to be able to access their reports but doesn't want anyone else to be able to access these reports. What is the best method for doing this and can anyone point me to sample code.
He writes the reports with his software then prints them as a PDF file and sends them to www.hisdomain.com/reports and this is where the customer picks them up from.
small query about Analog stats for which I can't find the answer anywhere.
A customer has asked why on the 'Failed referral reports' it is showing various URLs that do exist. From Analogs website they describe it as basically a missing link report. These links are not missing so how come it's still reporting them, could they be false positives?
The only thing I can think of is that perhaps when somebody clicks on the web page but then very quickly cancels the request by clicking another link or the stop button.
I just installed Nginx. It seems it works well, but watchdog reports it as "stopped".I restarted watchdog several times, and it always says the service has stopped.What shall I do to make watchdog see Nginx as a working service?
Following this KB [URL] ...., I can confirm that command "/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/nginxmng -s" return "Enabled".
In plesk9 my customers had the option to send daily usage reports by e-mail. Only certain clients like this option. Using plesk11 I cannot find this option if I log in as a client. Has this feature been removed? And if so, can the administrator enable this option only for 1 or 2 clients?
If everyone can take a look at this (while all domains were turned off) and give me any advice to what is eating up resources so badly? The load averages are at 1.3+ with only yum trying to run on the box and it has already been running to nearly two hours were this would typically take 10-15 minutes max prior.

I have a VPS, and i wanted to know if the CPU / Load Average that shows at my Plesk control panel reports only the usage of my part of the server cpu, or if it is the real/complete cpu usage for the entire server?
So in a simple way, is another user with a vps at the same server is doing a high cpu task at is vps, will it show at my plesk cpu load average?
Having a reseller account(didn't need it, but was talked into it originally), on the average how many domains should I expect to be hosted on one IP? Right now I show 466 for my IP. This is more for curiosity at this point than anything.
I am considering adding offsite secondary backup servers in house on a full T1 (multiple? or a fractional T3?). Servers will be located in Ontario Canada. Does anyone know the average, upper, and lower cost for a full or even partial T1? I am trying to go as cheap as possible since the line probably wont be used unless the datacenter looses service.
If anyones had any experience with T1, as far as price, reliability, best providers etc
