I am trying to determine how much bandwidth I use when someone downloads a file from my site. This may be simple but I am ??? on this issue.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks,
Tom

If you mean in terms of monthly server bandwidth limits, it's......err, the size of the file?
Sir Isaac Newton said "If I have seen farther, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants". But it is not recorded as to whether he said it before or after he was hit on the head by a falling apple.

Well not really because they could cancel the download in the middle, resulting in inaccurate bandwidth usage reports on your end. I dont think PHP can track this directly =/

Bandwidth or Data Transfer?
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.
