Traffic Stats

When we have now a traffic limit and must pay for over traffic we really need traffic stats so we can see what we have to pay when traffic is empty and pay traffic begin ;)

        A must for me would be to have the option to halt network traffic to prevent charges above a certain traffic threshold.

        Not the case for everyone, but quite a number of small-scale developers I'm sure would rather have a few hours of downtime than have a $1000 bill all of a sudden (think DDOS, some mistake in a script, whatever, causing a load of unplanned bandwidth usage).

        We would like to see this as well! We need to have our won stats to see how applications are performing etc.

        No need this. Because I'm about to quit DO for this reason. You are charging for it and you do not provide any information about it.

        Hey DO ! customers desperately need this feature. Please implement it

        I had already created droplet. For example this droplet's transfer is limited to 1TB/per month
        How can I view the transfer count for per month?
        Thanks a lot.

        We need to maintain traffic, so please aplay traffic tools like kabotage say :
        - Overall Bandwith used in hour/week/month
        - Incoming/Outgoing traffic
        - Overall Bandwith per process/ports/IP etc
        - Remaining Bandwith for this month
        - Overall Usage/Charge this hour/week/month

        Others
        - Auto email alerts for bandwith limits/option to upgrade
        - Auto lock bandwith to avoid additional charges

        Just leave it as it is. There was no charge for additional bandwidth since DO started. And it doesn't seems its bothering them as for past three years they didn't implement it, it is not hard work just to gather statistics.

        Gonna re-post the anonymous comment:
        If implemented, I certainly hope that all the TB offered by all the droplets we use will be cumulated and the total used against our usage because there is no real good way for us to correctly balance that and backend computers do not use much bandwidth at all so for us those would result in a big waste of all those neat TB offered!

        As the answer from DO Supporter for traffic cost.

        "
        At this time, traffic statistics are not yet available. Until these statistics are readily available to you, we will not process any charges for transfer that exceeds your Droplet allocation.
        "

        So at this time we can encourage to use this DO!

        Yep to add to this we need:
        piece of mind: if we hit the limit then future transfers are not allowed until we choose to pay (no one wants surprise bills)
        Early warning: let us know when we have got 25% through our limit, 50% through our limit 75% 80% 90%
