After some struggle finding info about DO’s networking specifics , I was able to find this statements:
Each physical hypervisor node has multiple 1Gbps network links (up and down).
These connections are shared by the droplets on the node
If your droplet is constantly above 300Mbps, sooner or later it will be blacklisted
We want to deploy our mobile backend services which have constant heavy network usage profile, so I was hoping you can give us few answers about how to stay safe on your infrastructure, while having some sane networking performance.
Are the droplets safe if we have many of them ( > 100 ) that are constantly using 290 Mbps ?
Can we go safely above 300Mbps with the private network ?
What happens if we hit a hypervisor that has 3 droplets already constantly using > 300 Mbps, is there any traffic shaping applied in that case ?
Is there any connection between the instance size and the 300Mbps limit
