See total bandwidth usage

I know this was asked before but I haven’t read a satisfying answer: Can I see my total (monthly) bandwidth usage for each droplet?
Because DigitalOcean actually charges for bandwidth and measures how much each droplet uses, this should be possible and appropriate.

And I don’t mean solutions with vnStat or a dedicated droplet for monitoring my other droplets. I want and need a possibility to see this online right in my account settings. As far as I can see, the graphs only show the average usage per second, but not the total amount and especially what’s left in the current plan (e.g. the 5$ entry plan). Correct me if I’m wrong.

So, I hope somebody can help :)

Our control panel does not currently report bandwidth use. Until this feature is provided we are not charging for bandwidth used in excess of plan limits. An announcement will be made before this changes, until that time the limits are not enforced.
