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?

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.

@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?

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?
