Droplet Transfer Limits

My droplet comes with a 2TB transfer limit.

  1. Where can I track my droplet’s current transfer use for the billing cycle?

  2. Are we charged overages if we exceed this limit?

I have seen a few posts here in the forum, but it seems unclear whether or not the limits are currently in effect.

Any clear answer would be appreciated.

Thank you.


As transfer limits are noted on the Droplet/Spaces Details, this information should be readily available without any setup on the clients behalf.

Set up vnstat. The network connection to monitor varies from distribution to distribution. Note that 2T is a lot of data.

If you really think you are going to get close to the limit, I would suggest looking for a procedure to send an email at say 1.5T. But installing vnstat is the first step.
