Bandwidth Tracking

Your  account dashboard shows near real-time bandwidth usage. Look for the Current & Past Bandwidth Usage table. This will show your username, any sub-accounts you have, along with your current total bandwidth usage, and past bandwidth usage from previous billing periods. If any of the bandwidth numbers is underlined, you can hover over the bandwidth number to see a chart showing your bandwidth usage by day for the past 30 days.

Calculation of Bandwidth Usage

Bandwidth and bandwidth usage are measured in gigabytes ("GB"). Bandwidth usage numbers are usually updated every 5 minutes; occasionally an update can take up to 15 minutes. 

Calculation of your bandwidth usage reflects all of the data passed through the proxy server, as indicated by the sizes of the request and response. When content is gzipped, the calculation uses the gzipped file size. The proxy simply transfers bytes between your device and Internet, and therefore only counts what it sees.

You may wish to review "Data Compression" in the Bandwidth Limits article.

Please contact support if:

  • you have questions or concerns about your bandwidth usage, or
  • you would like a sample of the requests and responses logged for your account, along with the size of each one.
