I no longer have the time to support and maintain the ISP Billing Script. So, I'm offering it free of licensing and support fees to all that want to use it. If you have questions, ask away, I will try to answer them. For the love all that is good, please make sure you have read the manual! :)

Those who are interested. I have written a very good ISP Billing script for Cacti and it does not require the plugin arch. However, there is a marginal licensing fee required to in order for me to provide ongoing support in the future. If that is not a problem for you, then feel free to drop me a email.

Please only email me requests for information concerning the ISP billing script, no personal messages on the forums. Also, I must insist that you email from the institution or company that is interested in using the ISP Billing script. I will not discuss anything over free email service accounts, IE, gmail, yahoo mail, excite mail, hotmail, etc.

Documentation will be posted in this thread.

This originally came up in this thread:
Plugin for 95th Percentile reporting

Is the .csv output customizable ?

We create .csv files from an excel sheet with the traffic numbers (which I manually need to input in the sheet) and import that into our billing system.

It would really help if I could cut out the manual entry of the numbers ;)

Depends on what you consider "customizable". If you edit the script, yes, you can change the output.

I could be motivated to make an enhancement to allow custom field orders in the CSV output.

Download of the script is not available.

Please read the first post to understand why.

 Post subject: does the isp billing module work with vmware guests?

I have *not* been successful in locating a billing package that will work with my vmware virtual servers. However, and thanks to this forum, I have discovered that cacti works with VMware's ESX!

Is there a billing package that then integrates with CACTI and runs with ESX virtual dedicated servers at the same time? This would be fantastic.

If I understand the scenario correctly, I could do the following:

1) Build ESX host
2) Build my virtual servers (VMs). Each VM could be on eth0, but on a different virtual nic (vmnet0, vmnet1, vmnet2, etc.)
3) Install CACTI to monitor traffic on my VMs
4) Install a billing module (which one?) to then do the billing at 95-percentile. (I need a module which will process credit card transaction)

Does this sound reasonable. Is anyone already doing this that cares to share their experience. Which billing modules work in this scenario?

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I'm looking to use this in a personal capacity, to graph my monthly internet usage. I've already got Cacti set up to monitor my incoming/outgoing data rates, but I want to turn that into a running tally for the month (ie, monthly internet usage). Will this script do this for me?

Rony,

I sent you an email last night regarding your script. I have not seen much talk in the forums regarding your script, but I am still curious.

I do not use Cacti, nor any other SNMP polling scripts. I would like to set up a development environment to see if I can poll each port on our switch.

Thanks Rony, and I look forward to your response!

Mike
