Questions about DO Spaces

Is there a way to monitor the outbound transfer usage (for a given month)for Digital Ocean Spaces storage? In the billing section I can see only droplet’s outbound bandwidth transfer usage, but I couldn’t find it for Spaces.

Secondly in spaces, is there a limit for how many users can download static files from my space account simultaneously? I am not too bothered about exceeding my 1TB transfer limit, but I am concerned about the visitors of my site and app being able to download all image and video contents at their fully available download capacity.

Note: currently for one of the sites I maintain, we get around 1500-2000 visitors per second at the peak time. Will spaces be able to deliver videos and images successfully? Most of my videos are about 5-15 Mb size and images are about 50 Kb to 2 MB size.

Hello, @ksk007255

You can probably ask Digital Ocean support team about the monitoring of the outbound transfer usage on the Spaces. It’s really easy to monitor this on a droplet, but not sure about the spaces.

I don’t think there is a limit for how many users can download static files from the spaces. As you mentioned the 1TB limit should be enough. The download capacity may be different depending from the number of simultaneous connection, but I have never experienced issue with it. This is something you can ask DO as well.

Looking at the information provided from you, the number of visitors per second is quite big and because of that you should probably consult with the Digital Ocean team in order to receive a solid answer, because I’m sure you want to have a perfect performance with that many visitors.

Let us know how it goes.
