For quite a while now, off & on I've been experiencing random ping spikes most noticeably when I'm gaming (RuneScape). They can occur around noon or a couple hours before midnight, lasting between a few seconds to several minutes. If I remember correctly, my connection has never completely dropped during these times but I could be wrong. I've checked briefly in Task Manager looking for anything obvious but nothing was there & Windows 10 wasn't updating either. I'd very much appreciate if someone could help guide me on how to diagnose the culprit & I've got a few ideas on my own along with some questions too.

 

1: Would it be a waste of time to write down every single Process in Task Manager & look for an odd one out during the lag spikes?

 

2: Should I just briefly scan through them & look for one hogging network?

 

3: If nothing is found would that only leave the game itself or my ISP as the cause?

 

4: I've heard of Glasswire for monitoring network traffic but am unsure if it'd be sufficient, what're all your thoughts & other recommendations?

 

5: I know there's a chance it's simply Windows 10 Telemetry but before I go downloading something such as ShutUp10, I'd like to first know what the cause is.

 

6: Finally, if it is Windows 10 Telemetry related, I'd prefer simply rescheduling the task via a Registry edit to a 3rd part app, unless that's too complex or impossible now.

I may have figured it out, seems my phone was auto syncing & backing up any pics I took throughout the day onto Google Photos. Since I've disabled this it's yet to occur although will report back in a week just to be sure.
