Question

How can I view my Spaces bandwidth usage?

Hi there,

I just started a trial of Spaces and so far have found it pretty powerful and easy to use. And the pricing (especially for bandwidth) is truly unbeatable.

Curious though… How can I see how much download traffic I have generated? Any way to see this so I can know how far I am from being subjected to download fees over the included 1 TB?

+1. This is a super important feature.

Still no real way to monitor this? My estimations for traffic were more or less correct. But I was surprised that Droplets and Spaces bandwidth do not combine, and now I pay quite an overage for Spaces.
This brings Spaces to the top of the queue for cost optimizations. The overage in Spaces is roughly the same as what I have left for Droplets.

@johngannon Any update on this?

Developers need this to monitor & optimize their applications!

Doesn’t seem we can vote any more, the link is dead.

How can they measure it to charge us, but not show us, feels criminal 😂 I need to know where I’m at and how much is going to get consumed releasing this app/feature.

After navigating to the root of the voting platform, I found that it seems how they plan to deal with it is just close any inquiry (the cynic in me).

I have to wonder if they even know…

i assume the reason this still does not exist in 2021 is because they don’t even know. from their documentation on the spaces api, which i found after getting so annoyed that the control panel is useless, that i was just going to write my own cli app:

Bucket Access Logging No Bucket Metrics No Bucket Analytics No

Hi, I don’t believe it takes two years to develop a simple overages bandwidth measurement and attach it to the Spaces UI.

Can Digital Ocean please start taking this seriously and put some funds into developing this functionality into your Control Panel? If you’re struggling technically maybe look externally if you’re lacking in the resource department. Would like to see something come out even if it’s basic in the next month or two please.

At this point the non-response is either arrogance or laziness.

I’m waiting on this too. Was one of the first things I looked for after creating a space and using it for a bit. Seems pretty strange to not be able to see your usage stats.

“[…] we’re looking at ways to make this information more visible and proactively available.”

@johngannon It’s been over a year since you said this, has a way been found?

Hey Guys,

Any updates in this issue? Its been a year since the thread was created. But, I can’t still see the bandwidth report on the spaces dashboard. Please look into this asap.

Hello. It seems this thread almost 1 year now. Did the bandwidth usage information visible to end-user now?

This feature is still needed, can I ask a overview via support?

+1 we need this feature to monitor our bandwidth usage

This is extremely important for us too. Ideally through the UI but also having access to this info through the API would work.

+1 for this feature too!

Still no way to get this info? wow

+1 for this feature. Is there any other way to record the bandwidth usage from the spaces. (maybe a proxy server or such)
