Force update of usage statistics in DirectAdmin

Directadmin uses the tally process to update user statistics (disk space usage, bandwidth). The process runs every night. To check the exact time, use:

cat /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron | grep tally
[root@web ~]# cat /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron | grep tally
9 1 * * * root echo 'action=tally&value=all' >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue

Sometimes you might want to force the execution of the process. The command is:

echo "action=tally&value=all" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue

For example – some accounts were transferred to DA and for some reason, the disk/BW values weren’t displayed:

tally before

After running the tally command:

tally after

There are also other similar commands. For example, to update only the bandwidth values:

echo "action=bandwidthtally&value=all" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue

To update only the disk usage values, use:

echo "action=quotatally&value=all" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue
