Hello , just wanted to know , does the flowfuse device agent consumes a lot of bandwith when doing development through the tunnel ? My data quota seems to get quickly depleted ever since I started to do development through flowfuse , it even reaches up to 1 GB per day for both data sent and receive, any thoughts ?
For your information , I did have other services which published telemetry data to the cloud which is telegraf but I doubt telegraf consumes a lot of bandwith , furthermore Im only sending every 10m so I doubt telegraf are the ones causing it . Any thoughts ? Thanks
Every message that comes to your debug panel is passed through the tunnel.
For global/flow/node context, if you are passing this (via MQTT or project link or some other external system) then yes, that is traffic. If you are also often viewing or refreshing the context on the sidebar often then yes, that too will need to pass through the tunnel.
So if you deploy every 1 minute, for 8 hours per day, that is ~62MB/day. Over 20 working days, that is ~1.2GB
Couple that with all the debug messages and MQTT traffic, yes, I can see how you have been using your data.
Where, physically, is the device in relation to your browser where you edit flows?
For subscribing MQTT localhost data , it also use internet ? Really ?
The device just sits next to me when im working on it when im at the office , only on some days i wfh then I use it from my house which not so far away tbh , around 20 km from the gateway itself
so lets say if i turn off the dev mode , it should not used a lot of data correct ? since nothing are passed through the tunnel , only the device logs right ? and some data that being published to project link out node correct ?
