SFTP/SCP traffic should be measured too.

    For as far as i know, only HTTP,FTP and POP3/IMAP/SMTP traffic is measured in Plesk.

    I have a lot of clients for which FTP traffic is (on request) blocked and only SFTP is allowed (with the help of chrooted Bash shell).

    But this traffic is not measured. So clients can circumvent their limits here.

    Can anyone also tell me how traffic IS measured ?

    For that to happen, openssh would have to support decent sftp logging, which doesn't. SW-SOFT would need to patch openssh, integrate and distribute psa-openssh package with the software.


    You can patch it yourself, and have those logs translated and apended to proftpd's xferlog that psa processes... A shell script and a cron task. A bit hackish, but could do the trick!
