Spaces Usage Analytics?

Hi, is there some API or dashboard to see the breakdown of bandwidth and storage consumption of each bucket?

Hypothetically I have a product and want to bill my customers for the bandwidth that they each use.

In theory I can compute the total storage, but how can I programmatically determine the outbound bandwidth that each bucket (or folder) has consumed?

  • In the API docs there’s an S3 compatibility table that appears to be saying that there are no bucket/space analytics.

    I would like to have bucket analytics for the purpose of knowing what resources are being served, much like the information I get out of nginx logs.

    Sadly, this is the thing that may force me to move away from Spaces, so I would like to register here for the sake of any Digital Ocean product managers, that this is an important user need.

I don’t have an answer, but I’ll give this a bump because I’d really like to see something like this too.

I’m also looking forward to this.

I’m hosting podcast audio files in Spaces and it would be great to get analytics. Otherwise, I’ll probably end up moving my files to another service.

I’d also like to see analytics.

Recently moved some static web content to a DO Spaces bucket and have zero insights into how much bandwidth we are consuming.
