On this page, you can manage bandwidth and data traffic usage notifications for your server.

A notification is an email that is sent to the technical contact e-mail address(es) of your account, when the specified threshold is reached or exceeded by the actual usage.

The usage is calculated daily between 03:00 and 06:00 UTC and is reset on the first day of every month.

Adding a notification

To add a notification setting, click the button. The Create Notification Setting dialog appears.


Can be "Data Traffic" or "Bandwidth"

Data Traffic is the total amount used in the current month

Bandwidth is the 95th percentile of the current month's usage.


Can be "Daily", "Weekly" or "Monthly"

The frequency determines how often the notification e-mail is repeated, once the threshold has been reached


The threshold value required to trigger the notification, needs to be a whole number.

The unit can be in "MB", "GB" or "TB" for Data Traffic or in Mbps or Gbps for Bandwidth.

Once all the fields have been entered, click to add the new notification.

Multiple notifications can be added for a server. For example, if you add a Monthly Data Traffic notification at 80TB and then add another at 90TB, you will receive a notification e-mail when the first threshold is reached, and then another notification e-mail when the second threshold is reached, no further notifications will be sent that month.
