Atlas AWS Data Transfer (Internet) has spiked for no reason

I can’t figure out why there is unusually high data transfer (internet). In the 2 images attached, we have about 20GB/day of internet transfer, yet the network is showing spikes of 4mb/s for a short time. There is no way we have this much data in our database (3gb), so what could be causing MongoDB to say there is high transfer, and not showing up in their logs.

Note: no change from last month in terms of product development / no new features, just spike in transfer.

Hi Faheem you may be better served asking for help via the in-UI chat support. I am not sure what this might be.

Hey Faheem. Did you figure this out? I am experiencing the same issue and cannot figure out why.
