My droplet has been working perfectly for about 5 months since creation. For 3 days now however, every evening from about 6pm onwards, its data transfer speed slows to a crawl. I mean, 30 to 50KB/s max. I have a few OneDrives mounted via rclone, and a local NAS mounted via CIFS. Read/copy speeds from these sources are extremely slow in the evenings, and normal (=fast) in the mornings and afternoons till 6pm.
Uploading via SFTP is also equally slow in that time range every evening.
There has been no config change or anything else I can think of. The problem disappears in the morning (not sure what time but it works fine when I get up and use it at around 8am).
Any idea what might be causing this?
