    Hi @adslr3

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    What's your intended action if the quota is met? Are you looking for a warning, or for the connection to be throttled/cut off?

    Previous requests of this nature simply wanted to keep track of usage, as completely cutting it off is counterproductive in most cases.

    We do already include bandwidth reporting in Dimension. If that fits your need, I'd suggest looking at

  • the scenario is when we set quota for day, if a person does not use it in that day the allocated quota is lost for that person. if we assign person a monthly quota they can use it when they needed. no quota will be lost. when monthly quota limit exceeded user needed to blocked from using the internet.
