Share transfer bandwidth because only one HAProxy droplet has high WAN traffic.

I’m using a droplet as a HA Proxy which catchs all requests and redirect them to other droplets through Private Network. So that, the HA Proxy droplet has very high transfer traffic, It not reasonable to pay for extra transfer on the droplet meanwhile other droplets even never use WAN transfer bandwidth.

There is any feature or a better configuration to solve this case?

Thank you, Giang.

Hi Giang,

If you are sending the traffic between your HA Proxy droplet and your other droplets via the private network that will not be counted towards your bandwidth usage as that is only for public transit, not for internal use.

So if you route it over the private network you won’t have any charges for it. =]

Have you been charged for over bandwidth? So far i know DO still didnt started charging for extra bandwidth usage.
