Pageviews and CDN Bandwidth Resource Usage
Updated over a week ago

NitroPack tracks pageviews on your optimized and non-optimized pages. You can find your website's optimized pages in the Cache Insights menu:

Bots and crawlers (like Googlebot) don’t add up pageviews when they land on a page.

NitroPack also uses a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to serve resources from servers that are closest to the users requesting them. This minimizes the distance between visitors and your site's resources, resulting in faster load times.

Your CDN usage only increases when your website’s visitors are served resources (images, CSS, JavaScript) from the edge location nearest to them. In other words, only the traffic generated by a visit to a page that has to fetch resources from our CDN is accumulated towards your plan’s CDN limit.

As a result, when resources can be served from the browser’s cache, the CDN bandwidth stays the same.

For example, if one user visits the same page five times, NitroPack counts that as five pageviews. However, on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th visit, the user can be served content (like static resources) from the browser’s cache. In that case, the pageview count increases, but the CDN usage stays the same after the first visit.

You can track your resource usage in the NitroPack Dashboard.

Reaching Your Pageviews or CDN Limit

If you max out your monthly pageviews or CDN bandwidth, NitroPack will automatically be disabled. Your website will continue to function normally, but NitroPack won’t optimize it.

You can continue using NitroPack by:

  • Waiting until the next month when your resource usage resets

  • Upgrading to a pricing plan with more resources

Paid plan users can also take advantage of Resource Overages. When enabled, overages let you continue using NitroPack, even after exceeding your plan's resources without having to upgrade to a higher plan.

You can enable them from your account’s Billing.

Lastly, keep an eye on your email. We send out an alert when you reach 80% of your pageviews or CDN bandwidth. Additionally, you get a notification email after consuming 100% of either resource. This lets you know that NitroPack will be disabled automatically.
