Bandwidth usage

Bandwidth usage


Quota is the total amount of public data transfer your project can consume before it starts incurring overages.

All servers come with 20 TB of free egress traffic and unlimited ingress traffic.

The 20 TB you get for each server is added to your Quota, which is shared between all servers in the same project and country. This is also known as Bandwidth pooling.

Bandwidth pooling

With, you don't have to monitor your servers individually to see how much of your quota they have consumed. For each server in your account, 20 TB is automatically added to your project's Quota.

Because pricing for bandwidth differs between countries, bandwidth is only pooled for servers in the same country and project.

Managing your quota

You can increase and decrease your quota by going to the Usage page and clicking on Manage quota.

Additional bandwidth is sold in increments of 10 TB and automatically increases your quota for the selected country.

Quota management pop up on the dashboard.


Project usage

The Usage page on the dashboard provides detailed insight into your project's bandwidth usage. You can find your project usage on the Usage menu in the sidebar.

The Usage page will render one chart for each country that you have servers deployed. So, if you have servers in Brazil and the US, one chart for each will be rendered.

The chart shows how much Inbound and Outbound bandwidth your project has consumed in the selected period. You can change the date range on the dropdown on the right-hand side of the chart.

For all regions, overage Bandwidth costs $0.01 per GB that goes over your quota. By buying Bandwidth Packages, you can considerably reduce the cost per GB to as little as $0.00064.

Bandwidth Packages can be added to a project in increments of 10 TB. Pricing for each country is available here.
