Hello everyone!
I’m new to Digital Ocean and Im really in the need of learning more. I have a project that does several requests for serveral servers super constantly i.e imagine having a python script that has around 20 threads running and every thread makes constant requests to specific servers (with constant I mean very constant, like 2 requests per second). I already created a Droplet with the following specs:
Shared CPU
2 vCPUs
4 GB
80 GB
4 TB

Yet I dont know if should be the addecuate one
What Droplet is the one that your professionally recomend for my necesities such that my project is as efficient and fast as possible? (i.e makes fast requests and gets data fastly)

Hi there,

I believe that the Droplet that you’ve selected is quite good for a start.

I could suggest regularly checking the monitoring graphs via your DigitalOcean Control panel and see how the resources are being utilized. In case that you notice extensive CPU or RAM usage, this would be a good indication that you should add more resources.
