Monthly Network Transfer Pool

I hardly used my Linode. But I see the below message. What does this mean?

Hi Jevan -

The Monthly Network Transfer Pool is prorated based on the dates Linodes were active on your account. This could be the reason why you're seeing an overage reported.

We have another post on our Community Questions site that has information on how the the pool is calculated, and also covers how prorated transfer amounts are calculated.

How does the monthly network transfer pool work?

We also have an official guide on the Network Transfer Pool that you may find helpful.
