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?

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

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.

“[…] 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?

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.

This is pretty bad to leave out. How is someone supposed to plan for future needs when they don’t even know how much data is being used?

This should be a huge priority to make billing and usage transparent. The data is obviously there if you can bill for it, so just show it to your users!

I’m surprised this isn’t available. Webfaction and every other provider shows you bandwidth so you can avoid going over. Why doesn’t digitalocean?

  • 1 for this… really required

Still no way to get this info? wow

At the moment the only way to see if you have gone over the 1 TB bandwidth allocation is to look at your daily invoice and see if you’re incurring overage charges. I realize this isn’t ideal, and we’re looking at ways to make this information more visible and proactively available.

Have you already provide a mechanism for viewing the bandwidth consumed?

I’d like to know this as well. It is very difficult to accurately plan for growth without this information.

Any update? Can we check the usage with API?

Adding a +1 for usage stats please

Adding a +1 for usage stats please

Yes, this is really needed, please provide this info.

Also, it would be great if spaces and droplets could share a bandwidth pool. In our case, we have tons of unused droplet bandwidth, but have to pay more for spaces overage :(

Hi, do we have a solution about how to check Spaces traffic usage?

Yes, we want this feature.

Just trying to push this.

any update about this feature?

+1. This would be incredibly helpful.

+1 Why this is not implemented yet?

+1 would really like to have this


I want to know my ‘Spaces’ bandwidth usage…

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

+1 for this feature too!

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

+1 we need this feature to monitor our bandwidth usage
