"Bandwidth public" is always high (outbound)
I am looking at my Droplet’s monitoring page on the digitalocean site, and the box “Bandwidth public” shows a near constant full line around 100Mbps (jittering around +/-10%). When hovering over the box, it says it is Outbound bandwidth that is being used.
I’m no Linux novice, but definitely no expert, so I rely a lot on Google.
I tried “netstat -nputw” which only showed my SSH connection.
I tried nload which showed very little traffic.
I tried iftop which again showed very little traffic.
Is this an issue with digitalocean’s monitoring system?
Should I be worried or look into it further? If yes, how?
