Monitoring your disk usage and bandwidth

Information about your mailboxes, disk space and bandwidth use is easily accessible in a display window that appears when you log in to the WebsiteOS. This display also includes a link to your website. If you click on this link, your website will open in a new window.

If you open an application group from the main menu, it will replace the Account Information display. You can return to the Account Information display by clicking the blue "i" for Information.

Note that the bandwidth does not show in real time. It is updated every 15 minutes.

Determining your disk space usage

To access the "Disk Usage" function, select "Statistics" from the main menu, and select "Disk Usage" from the Statistics menu.

The "Disk Usage" function reports the disk space usage of your website. It provides a listing of each directory and the amount of space used.

The report is in plain text and can be cut and pasted for printing.

Using the Log Manager

To access the Log Manager function, select "Statistics" from the main menu, and select "Log Manager" from the Statistics menu.

The Log Manager allows you to obtain raw server logs about your site activity and traffic. You can view and/or delete, print, download, and date your log files. You may disable logging altogether to conserve your disk space.

Your server logs can also be downloaded for use with other statistics packages.

You can use the Web Stats function to analyze and view your log files in an easy-to-read, graphical display. While Log Manager allows you to manage your log files and view them in their raw state, Web Stats makes them human readable.

Rotating and dating log files

If you would like to have your server logs stored according to a specific date, use the Rotate Activity Logs function. This function creates a text file from the activity log, and resets the log. The name of this text file is a combination of the date it is created and words "access log" appended in front of it separated by an underscore.

Example: The activity logs rotated on January 5, 2001 will be saved in a file named: access_log_Jan5_2001

If you rotate your activity log more than once a day, the log's information will be appended to the present day's dated text file.

The dated text files, along with the activity log are displayed in a scrollable panel under the "Options" tab.

To rotate your activity log, click the "Rotate Activity Logs" button under the "Options" tab.
