    Default Monthly Quotas

    Do you ever see bandwidth control having monthly quotas?

    I think this would be a great feature, as I have a few clients that are stuck on 3g or 4g cell cards and it would be nice to slow them down just below there monthly cap to avoid overages.

    Thanks

    It would really suck for those customers if they filled their quota only half way through the month. You might consider daily quotas for 1/30th of the monthly allotment instead, to help them pace themselves.

    Unlikely to have longer quotas soon as that would require changing quota accounting to be on disk that would persist through a reboot.
