Traffic VS Bandwidth in DigitalOcean Context
I’m a prospective Droplet buyer, referring to the pricing plans here.
While everything else seems clear, I fail to understand what exactly the Transfer volume refers to (1/2/3/4/5 GB)
Through various threads on the forum I only gathered an inconclusive mix responses of it referring to either the bandwidth or the traffic (outgoing/incoming).
It’d be much appreciated if someone can shed light on the various terminologies and what they mean respectively (bandwidth, outgoing/incoming traffic) and how they are monitored in DigitalOcean.
For example, if I host a website heavy on media content (locally-hosted images/videos). In a month 1000 unique visitors visited my site 1 time each and glanced through around 10 photos (~10mb each). Does that mean that (1000 * 10 * 10)MB or 100GB of ’Transfer’ volume is used or is the meter measured differently?
