I'm looking at the simple queue features in beta 11, and I'd like to address several problems, which may argue for an interface to existing software, or new software.
What I'd like to see is a web page that the customer can look at their bw consumption on a hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly biasis, (ie; cricket). I'd also like to set some params on "penality box" behavior, ie; too much bandwidth consumed over x time, or at the wrong time, both incoming and outgoing. I'd also like to be able to send the customer a automated notice that they are approaching the penality box, with a link back to the previously mentioned page detailing their useage. Perhaps, the same page could allow them to purchase more bw. and exceed the penality box params.
It appears that some of this functionality is being designed into beta 11, but I'd like to see it go further (and perhaps some preliminary documentation so we can experiment with it, P2P, flows, Total Max Limit...what does this stuff do; sounds intrigueing), and include documentation on how to hook it to third party software like Cricket OR a completely separate server-based software that we can purchase (I know I would.) for bw management.
