Email,SMS notification

Post by splinter02 »

Hi all,

I was wondering if the email notification could be coded for the quota management? Here is what I would like to accomplish, I have a guest account for a airbnb style rental (Monthly). I include 40 Go a month, which of course shuts off by quota management, but would like to send notification via sms when user reaches 50%, 90%, ect... like the major cell phone providers do. This would be a very nice feature which would put less stress to my life when the phone rings at midnight because they lost internet... Thanks

You can roll your own script for this which checks the quote values and then triggers an email if needed.
You can use the "print_quotas" command on a cron schedule, and the email notifications plugin to provide you with the email sending utility.

A few suggestions without writing a script
1) Simply ask them to check the usage from the router page, login not required
2) Throttle their speed, not cut it off when limited is reached
3) Consider changing your quota limit to reset per day/hour/week rather than per month

I have written such a script. Just a few lines really. It emails only when >=99%. I set it to run every 10 min in cron. I dont think the Priority works but left it in there.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

current_date_time=$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S")

print_quotas | grep quotaPercents |grep -v "\= \[\];"|grep -v " 0.000," |grep -v "var quotaPercents" |awk '/\]\[/{sub(/.*\]\[ /, "");print}' |awk '{print $1, $5}'| cut -c 2- |sed 's/.$//'|sed 's/"//'| sed 's/"//' | awk '{ if($2 >= 99) { print } }' > quota_email_output.txt

if [ -s quota_email_output.txt ]
then
  cat ../mail_template_quota.txt > "mail_alert_$current_date_time.txt"
   print_quotas |grep quotaPercents |grep -v "\= \[\];"|grep -v " 0.000," |grep -v "var quotaPercents" |awk '/\]\[/{sub(/.*\]\[ /, "");print}' |awk '{print $1, $5}'| cut -c 2- |sed 's/.$//'|sed 's/"//'| sed 's/"//' | awk '{ if($2 >= 99) { print } }' >> mail_alert_$current_date_time.txt
  cat "mail_alert_$current_date_time.txt" | msmtp username@domain.com
fi
Contents of mail_template_quota.txt

Code: Select all

To: user@domain.com
From: user@gmail.com
Subject: Gargoyle Quota Warning
X-Priority:1
User has exceeded their quota
The actual quota group/name and values get append to the end of the email body.

Just for reference, I think you went to "Settings", "General", Messaging & Notification where the second option is -Default Thread Subscription Mode -there are 5 options. Off is by default.
