Tracking usage per client

Post by TommyKL » Mon Sep 27, 2021 9:39 pm

I maintain an openvpn service for a few people and am finding that some really go wild with usage.
I need some way to keep track of the amount of bandwidth and data that each user is using say daily, weekly, monthly, etc.

Does anyone have any leads, an article, howto, something that talks about how this could be accomplished.

The OS is an older Centos 7.

For some reason, there is no edit pencil available to edit my above post but wanted to add that the user name is always the same, even if their VIP potentially changes.

Hard to believe that no one else is facing this challenge.

What you want is a fully managed system. Well, in the real world, systems like that cost money.
