I’ve setup New Relic to monitor my droplet, and I’m seeing very high network activity. A steady 15-20 Kb/s received according to their charts. I don’t see anywhere near this type of activity when watching via NetHogs, so I can’t account for it.
I’ve spun up a brand new droplet with a brand new IP address, and I see the same activity. I’ve also setup Ubuntu 12.10 VPS’s on 2 other services with the exact same steps, and I see a fraction of the activity. It only seem to be showing up using DO.
Has anyone seen anything like this? Maybe it’s an issue with the New Relic agent?
