Description - A metered ISP circuit is consuming too much bandwidth. Typically these are LTE or cellular circuits with a data plan.
Indicators of this issue - On the Bigleaf Web Dashboard Performance charts, the metered ISP circuit shows a high amount of utilization.
The metered ISP circuit is set to Load Balancing or Avoid circuit type.
Unstable primary ISP circuits set to Load Balancing or Avoid are going offline too often, causing a Backup Only metered ISP circuit to be used too often.
Tests and Solutions
Change the metered ISP circuit to Backup Only circuit usage if it is not already configured.
If a Backup Only circuit is being used too often, resolve the ongoing issues with the primary ISP circuits. See our KB: A circuit has packet loss or latency.
Backup Only circuits will consume approximately 2.5GB of bandwidth per month by default due to Health Monitoring packets. Any metered circuit should at the very least be provisioned for >2.5GB.
