Question

How is outbound transfer measured for Apps?

I have a static React app running within the Apps service that will communicate with an external API. Is outbound transfer the data going from my app to the API or the data from the API to my app? Also, how do I track how much outbound transfer I have used?

Also, on the page to increase to a Pro plan, I’m getting the message “If you’d like to use the Basic or Pro plans, add a service or worker to this app.” I don’t need to add any extra service since this is a static front-end app. How could I scale this up without adding any additional services?

Hi there,

If I understand this correctly, you have a static website, so the requests made by the site would occur in the visitor’s browser meaning that no requests will be going out from the App Platform itself.

The App Platform itself will only be serving the static website files like JS/HTML/CSS and then all of the work will be done by the browser that the end-user uses.

If you had a backend service like a Node.JS app that executes some API requests, then the outgoing traffic would actually be coming out of the App Platform itself.

Hope that this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

Bobby
