We are facing a very problematic situation since last several months due to accessive bandwith usage. But we are sure this is only local traffic.
We have 2 Servers with our hosting provider
Server A - this is a VPS
all our webfiles/domains/dns/nameservers reside on this server
Server B - this is a dedicated server
contains only databases
(we are actively running vbulletin based forums on this servers)
Since last several months we are facing huge bandwith increase since we have transferred only our databases to Server B. (earlier database + everything was on Server A) We never ever consumed even 50% of the entire allocated bandwith in past when we were on Server A.
But only after moving the database from Server A to Server B we have found this tremendous increase,
Can we do something about same ? as both the servers belong to same hosting provider.
We are not sure but expect that this is only local network traffic between 2 servers.
Any expertise shall help reduce our costs.
