I’m trying to understand and calculate the amount of data I can potentially use within my boundaries.
Hologram.send("Hello World with slackapi");
Sending the string above, Is 25 bytes, but renders as 586 bytes total that adds to the usage meter.
Safe to say if we minus our string above with the total bytes get posted to usage, we get 561 default bytes that will apply to every message sent.
After I finish my calculation, the hologram bill with end up being more than my actual phone bill with unlimited data!
My question, is there a way to lower the amount of bytes?
Question #2. By going to https://dashboard.hologram.io/devices/logs page, it has a byte column that will show the payload size (in this case, “25” for the message above"), but why not show the WHOLE size of the message that will affect the actual bill? What is the point of this column?
Ex: Under Usage i’m at 4096B used, and when I add all the bytes up under the logs page it comes to 123 bytes.
I’m just trying to understand the system, please let me know if I’m doing something wrong on my end.
