Hello Chad,


As far as I know, Data Transfer is measured by day. Maybe, you can ask for some additional programming.


Do you have the "User Log" feature in your account?

I am not sure, if it works for you, but you can follow the next steps:


1) Create Authentications for every DataPage.

1a) Every Authentication uses the same table.

1b) On every Authentication, "Enable auto-login" is checked.

It allows a user to enter credentials one time and then go through all DataPages without any additional log ins.

1c) Authentications are named by DataPages.


Now User Log contains information like:

26 Jan 2015 05:33 PM user1 DP third
26 Jan 2015 05:33 PM user2 DP First
26 Jan 2015 05:32 PM user1 DP second
26 Jan 2015 05:30 PM user1  DP First
Maybe it helps.

I just want to add to the previous comment above, this is just based on the information provided to me by a Caspio expert when I also inquire to them about this issue. This is also some other way to know your Data transfer.

Caspio count how much data “leaves” the Caspio database as the DataPage is rendered. If the DataPage has a lot of lookups, dropdowns, cascade elements or Ajax editing abilities, you will see an increase in data transfer. 

This is a good resource of best practices: http://howto.caspio.com/datapages/best-practices-in-creating-caspio-applications/. Using browser tools (F12 and Net Tab) is a good way to estimate the size, but the actual size might not be exactly what is counted from our systems. Below is more information that can help to understand the areas contributing to data transfer:

Activities performed inside Caspio Bridge that incur data transfer include:

1. Preview Submission Form and you submit data and files.
2. Preview Search and Report DataPage and you Search. When you get results with many rows and images, sorting and paging, and click to details and go back to results.

Activities performed inside Caspio Bridge that doesn't incur data transfer include:
1. Creating and accessing objects
2. Import of apps/tables/DataPages
3. Export of objects
4. Upload and Download of files
5. Preview of Submission form without lookup dropdowns
6. Preview of Report DataPage, direct to results (or details) that do not display images nor paging activities

Also, you can check the number of used resources within your Caspio Bridge account if you select from the top menu bar "Account"-->"Usage and billing".


I hope that helps.

Just to add to my previous comment above,  In most Caspio plans, data transfer is the primary metric to measure platform usage. Since all plans provide free unlimited users for applications, data transfer is a relatively straight-forward method for this purpose.

To reduce constraints during the development and day-to-day data management of your applications, Caspio is changing the way they calculate account data transfer.

Effective November 1, 2015, any data transfer incurred by account users within Caspio Bridge accounts is free and therefore no longer calculated toward your monthly data transfer. This change is automatic and you are not required to do anything.

Here are examples of account data transfer that are now effectively unlimited:

All interactive importing and exporting of data and apps. This includes all user-initiated import/export, but does not include DataHub activities.
All uploading and downloading files within the account.
All development activities such as creating and editing DataPages and other objects within the account.

This policy change applies to all plans. We hope that this change will encourage you to explore the platform more freely and apply Caspio-powered applications to more business activities.

For more details you can refer to this link: https://blog.caspio.com/update-on-caspios-data-transfer-policy/?_ga=2.17722617.1188761798.1546486140-537387838.1546486140
