Dear All

I have a shared web server on windows 2000 with IIS 5.0 the question .

Is there any way to make a limitation on the bandwidth like the shared web hosting around the world for example

I need web site XYZ to use only 1 GB during the month

If there is a 3rd party solution please let me know

Regards

You can try bandwidth-throttling options in the IIS property sheet

Thank you for your reply

I think bandwidth-throttling will limit the bandwidth per second not the total bandwidth used on these services

I need to limit the total bandwidth used on this URL during a period of time as I explain on my example

www.xyz.com he have a hosting on shared web server and this hosting is limited by 1 GB Transfer per month visitor 1 download from my web site 500 MB then visitor 2 download 300 MB then visitor 3 download 200 MB and other visitor browse the web site after all this visit I utilize my 1 GB within a week the new site visitor will got the message

The page you have requested,
Is unavailable because "Bandwidth Limit Exceeded"

Regards

IIS doesn't support this functionality out of the box. However try this link.

I can't personally vouch for it, but this is what came back from google for "quota enforcement IIS".

Cheers

Yes, understood..    James' solution looks like it may work for you though...

And perhaps a combination of the two would provide you with the proper solution..  Just thinking here, but if you hit the total limitation you set  before the month is out, then you will essentially be 'down' for the rest of the month.  If you use James' solution, and also throttle your total dnloads, then you can spread the totals out throughout the month, and keep your service intact.  For example, if this is being used for customers, the worst thing that could happen is that they cannot use the service half way through the month...  Again..  just considering the consequences here...
