How do I know details about my VPS like total Bandwidth used in current month

  • Posted January 24, 2015

I am a newbie on DO, and have started with a $5 plan that includes following configuration:

  • 512MBMemory
  • 1 CoreProcessor
  • 20GBSSD Disk
  • 1TBTransfer

In the DO Control panel, I can see a real-time graph of Bandwidth, Disk activity and CPU being used. Now my plan allows me to have 1 TB transfer which means all the sites I have hosted shouldn’t exceed more than 1 TB of data transfer. Hence I would like to know the total bandwidth which my sites have used in current month.

I can see other details like how much SSD space I am consuming by commands such as du in the terminal, but not sure how to know total bandwidth used.

My VPS is running Debian 7.0 x32.

Hi, NodeQuery is very good!

I use a script called “Linfo” is the github of the project.

You can see a lot of important information, like bandwitch, disk usage, ram usage, disk, drivers, etc etc etc

You can try installing a software called vnstat, that monitors and displays the total transfer…


and I think they are still not charging for extra bandwidth yet.
