With having multiple accounts on your WHM Server, you may want to keep track of the bandwidth usage of each of the cPanel accounts in case you see that a large amount is originating from your server. This can easily be checked within WHM's View Bandwidth Usage tool.
Step One: Log into your WHM Administrative dashboard for the server.
Step Two: While logged into WHM, enter into the Search box 'Account Information and press Enter in the upper left.
Step Three: From the available options, select View Bandwidth Usage. This will bring you to a page where you get a brief overview of each cPanel Account's bandwidth usage for the month.
While you are on the View Bandwidth Usage page in WHM, you will see a list similar to the following that will cover the bandwidth usage per cPanel account.
Below the list of cPanel accounts and their bandwidth usage, a legend describes some of the icons and color-coding presented in the list.
For the cPanel accounts that are reseller account (with the ability to create cPanel accounts), you can click the little Checkmark next to the user to show only the accounts created under that reseller.
If there are subdomains or additional domains on the cPanel account, you can click the Plus icon next to the domain name to view only those domains and their bandwidth usage.
While using the Best Fit option for the Units shows a more human-readable value, you can also change the units to be displayed in Strict Megabytes. This can make it easier to compare all of the bandwidth usages on the server if the Best Fit option changes some options to be different. This can be done by clicking the Show Units in Megabytes using Best Fit and Show Units with Best Fit if you are currently viewing in Megabytes.
To view all of the bandwidth usages on the server as a whole, there will be a box with the Total Bandwidth Usage for the server towards the bottom of the View Bandwidth Usage page.
You also have the ability to change the month that you are viewing the bandwidth usage for. This can be helpful if you are looking for historical increases in bandwidth usages on an account. To do this, from the top of the page, there will be links to view either the Last Month or the Next Month (if viewing a month before the current month)
