network bandwith quota between droplet and spaces

Posted August 19, 2021 146 views

I already have a Droplet and one Space within the same data center zone. The Outbound traffic from my Droplet to my Spaces count into the transfer limits of my droplet?
If the answer is yes, what is the purpose of implementing an Space with this limitations?

According to the official documentation here, traffic from Droplets to Spaces does not count against your Spaces transfer allowance (because inbound bandwidth to Spaces is free), but does currently count against your Droplets’ outbound transfer allowance.

In the documentation, it is mentioned that DigitalOcean is working on changing this behavior.
