I tested the uplink recently with a 3.4GB file on europe.
In the WebUI overview it shows that I have used 52GB egress but I definitely don’t remember downloading the file over 15 times! I only downloaded it a few times to test the speed. I am now downloading the file again to see how the value shown changes and will report back.
EDIT: I downloaded it again and now my egress shows 62GB! So downloading my 3.4GB file did costs me 3 times the egress of the file’s size. How is that possible? I understand that for uploading a file you have to upload it more than once so it is stored securely but for downloading you only need everything 1 time, not 3 times.
The other question about egress is the billing: I have used 52GB of my available 25GB. How is such a case handled? In production I would probably get an invoice since I didn’t add my credit card yet? How is it handled now during the testing phase? Can I just use as much egress as I like?
The last point is a bug in the ui: In the bucket overview the used storage is shown correctly but the Egress used by the bucket stays at 0GB-
