Ftp Logs Or Statistics

Recommended Posts

My request was for FTP logs or statistics. Can we get that?

So where on earth does that traffic come from?
and if you submit a helpdesk ticket they could tell you that answer. It may be useful to know.

Turns out there are raw logs for FTP access, and they can be accessed under FTP - manage accounts. Down the page there.


And there was an explanation.


Bandwidth was wrong.


I had deleted two big files. Not downloaded, not uploaded, just outright deleted. And that was counted as bandwidth.


Clearly that app needs some tweaking!


Now, my question is, let's say I had little bandwidth left (hypothetically speaking), and deleting big files would be a problem. Would I then need to use file manager to delete them instead?


Also, since Bandwidth is part of cpanel, is this a problem for all hosts using cpanel?

I guess the statistic I heard that 80% of the things people worry about never happen was correct, huh? :lol:


My guess would be that the cPanel file manager would be the best, but I also wonder if there's not something going on behind the scenes with your ftp - why would it count "delete bubba.txt" as the size of that file? That part doesn't make sense and as a professional programmer I shudder to think a fellow programmer would write such a bizarre rule. Maybe someone else has some ideas on FTP deletes.

I checked my other domain (hosted somewhere else). I couldn't make sense of the FTP traffic there at all. But then I only had the logs for one day to check, so it was a big limited (they flush logs every week, ¤(=#"¤% unfortunately).
