Monthly bandwidth utilization - where exactly to check

Posted June 21, 2020 612 views

The last word from DO on bandwidth utilization was apparently in 2018,

We are now charging for bandwidth transfer excess. You can view your current bandwidth usage and allotment using the control panel. Please see the documentation on bandwidth billing for more info.

We can’t see anything about where to check the used bandwidth on that page, and the droplet’s control panel only shows the instantaneous bandwidth if monitoring is enabled.

We’re running a video service, and we need to check the bandwidth utilization out of the monthly quota. How can we do that?
