I am an amateur network admin in a call center and i was just wondering why our LAN traffic based on our PFSense Firewall/ Router spiked to 300mpbs. Here, internet connection became slow and some calls went choppy but our Internet connection did not disconnect. Our Internet connection has a speed of 30mbps only by the way. Please see attached image for reference.
1. Can this be a DOS attack made accidentally or intentionally?
2. I requested all active protocols during the same hour from our ISP and got the data with SIP RTP being the highest although there seems to be bittorrent active that time. May I know if RTP can cause network congestion that may reach 300mbs on a LAN?
Thank you very much in advance for you answers
