Extreme traffic spikes are kicking everyone.

    In the past 2-3 weeks, my server has been having extreme traffic spikes that (according to my host) exceed more than a 100 Mb/s. These happen seemingly out of nowhere, once every couple of days. What's weird to me is my server gets an average of around 20 players, with a 35 player limit. And this has happened with only 13 players online.

    My host has suspended my server until I can figure out what is causing this, as it is also affecting people on the same hardware node. Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    I'd assume this is DDoS that is unavoidable :p

    How would I be able to check for signs of a DDoS?

    Your host should be able to detect this and have logs of it...
    If it really is a DDOS, it would be the hosts responsibility, not yours.

    I'm not sure you will have access to logs regarding ping or packet data.
