How to determine the required size of a droplet for load balancing?
I'm switching over from Linode which had proprietary node balancers. They charged a flat $20/month for node balancing, regardless of traffic. (That would equate to their 2GB Linode.)
Assuming the load balancer is configured to communicate over the Private Network, how much traffic can a 1GB or 2GB droplet (running nginx for load balancing) really handle? Is there any good way to determine this?
