Do Load Balancers connected to Droplets via Private IP still count towards bandwidth quota?
From what I’ve read, it’s only traffic from a Public IP address that counts towards the bandwidth quota and any communication between servers via Private IP isn’t counted.
If my Digital Ocean Load Balancer is connecting to my Droplets via their Private IP addresses (which it does automatically if Private IPs are enabled on the Droplets), and my Public IP addresses are basically ignored (all traffic goes through Load Balancer), does that mean I practically have unlimited bandwidth?
Thank you for any clarification.
