Cost for external network traffic of master nodes
In created clusters, 8 Mbps public network bandwidth is opened for master nodes (for HA cluster, each of the two master nodes has 8 Mbps of bandwidth). The traffic is Pay-As-You-Go and not included in the cost of the clusters. You are charged outflow traffic on an hourly basis, while the inflow traffic is free of charge. For example, if you use 10 GB of outbound public traffic in an hour, the charge is 10 GB * price per 1 G (dollar/h). Traffic fees across different regions may vary. The flow rate varies slightly for each region, please refer to ECS network pricing information.
