With Studio, you can see the month-to-date streaming bandwidth you’ve used, how many days are left in the current month, and usage by day if you have a live streaming plan with embed options. Studio includes both a widget on the Dashboard and a detailed view of bandwidth usage in your Organization Details. Bandwidth usage is correct to the minute, with the exception of high-traffic times.
Understanding how much streaming bandwidth you’ve used will allow you to make the adjustments necessary to stay within your plan’s allowance or if your viewership has increased, know if you’ll be receiving an overage charge the following month ahead of time. Things that affect bandwidth usage include views, time watched, and resolution viewers used.
Even if you exceed your maximum bandwidth for the month, Resi will not interrupt or stop your service.
If your viewership continues to increase and you’re consistently over your bandwidth allowance, you can upgrade your plan by contacting your Customer Success Manager.
