Question

Download throttling

Does anyone know if there is any sort of throttling when downloading from spaces external to the DO network?

I’m using a backup program called “restic”, and for some reason, the restores are SUPER slow from DO, but none of the other object store providers I have tested. Just wanted ot confirm.

There is no download throttling on Spaces, if you are having issues might be a good idea to quickly troubleshoot the network and see if there is congestion or packetloss anywhere along the path using traceroute.

You can also open a support ticket, but the first few steps they will ask you about is to provide ping and traceroute output, so you can check that out before hand.
