I took a snapshot and I understand it costs $0.02. per GB. But I don’t know how to find the size of the snapshot.

can some one provide the command to find the size of my snapshot OR image in my account.

thanks Sriram


I think they have not yet started to bill us for snapshot !!

Search in forum, Digital Ocean representatives have said many times, that billing has not yet started and when they do, they would further release few more details about the same…

Hi! I just wanted to provide a quick update on this to point out that for some time now, the size for your snapshot is shown on the images page in the control panel.

This is the compressed size of the snapshot, not the space allocated for the Droplet. So when snapshot storage billing begins on October 1, 2016, you are only charged for the amount of space you are actually using at $0.05 per gigabyte per month.

Currently it’s not possible to find out the size of a snapshot, but you don’t need to worry about that because as @hunky said we are not billing for snapshots yet.
