Blank droplet - CPU spike every hour, Disk I/O spike
Hi, I am new to DO. I have recently just set up a basic droplet for $5 and only have CentOS 8 installed. I have not even changed the root password yet, that’s how fresh the droplet is.
So upon checking the droplets graph I notice there is a spike 30 seconds before every hour? The CPU spikes along with the load and Disk I/O.
Why does this happen when I have done nothing yet on the droplet?
