Can Promox VM network interface record foreign traffic
So I recently got a VPS from DataIdeas and after having set it up and placed zabbix agent on it I noticed something strange in the traffic graphs. Periodially like every 10 to 20 minutes the ens18 interface would show sustained download of about 100Mbps. That would last for about 10 minutes as well.
When I saw this I immediately logged into the VPS and started monitor the processes and traffic using htop, nload and tcptrack.
After waiting for about 20 minutes the sustained 100Mbps usage started again. Both nload and bmon showed ens18 downloading that much however htop showed no process using cpu and tcptrack showed that usage was 40KB/s.
The hosting provider using proxmox, does anyone know how else I can check what is downloading that much. Is it possible that the interface is recording traffic not from my vps?
