Tracking bandwidth my Droplet has used

May 13, 2014 995 views
How can i track how much bandwidth my Droplet has used so far? Basically i have a 2TB of network bandwidth per month, and i want to check how much of this 2TB i have used. Please note i am referring to how much bandwidth(data) has been used so far, and not how much bandwidth (speed) that the server used at any point of time. Thanks in advance

Take a look at vnstat: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMonitorInternetTrafficTotals#vnstat. It won't start outputting data right away, give it a few hours to collect info and then try running it again.
