In a previous topic someone asked for a bandwidth control, see http://forum.nginx.org/read.php?10,8050.

The topic had a good point, because tracking bandwidth is difficult when running nginx alone as webserver. The reason is we can log bytes sent back to the user but not log the receiving bytes, while apache can.

If this feature will be implemented then it would make bandwidth control of nginx a whole lot easier, without making nginx do the bandwidth control, because it can be outsourced via the logs.

I thank you for reading,

I don't know if anyone has taking some consideration for this feature, but if it ain't possible to implement for the forseeable future then I would like to know.

Thanks for reading.

Hi everyone,

First of all happy new year, hope that everyone had a good year transition.

Anyways it has been 2 months ago since I posted my request, however I haven't seen any reaction towards it. Is my request even possible with nginx if not I really need to look to other alternatives, because this features is really what I need. I even checked the code myself to do it, however I do not have the time to gain another project.

I hope someone can relieve me of my long wait with an answer I like or don't like. ;)

Greetings,
Misthafalls

Hi everyone,

I find it a shame that my request is being ignored, maybe your all to busy because I can understand that you are. At this moment I dropped nginx for apache mpm-event until the support for bandwidth usage is there.

I tried doing it with iptables, but the extra steps when running a public server is too much. Even though everything is automated a easier solution is ++ in performance ;)

I hope someone will respond or give their support for this feature

You can log the $request_length variable using log_format directive in nginx. This will log the value of the Content-Length header, indicating the size of POST data including uploaded files.

This is the inverse of the $body_bytes_sent variable (which indicates the number of bytes sent to client minus headers).

Hi,

Thanks for your reaction, however it is not what I meant, because it excludes the header itself and this isn't how apache responds to the bytes received parameter. If I wasn't clear with my question, then I hope it is clear now ;)

I hope someone can answer this sometime, because now I am using apache with mpm-event, which works remarkably well.
