Tremendous Amount of Data Used


We're new to AWS and launched an EC2 instance, in addition to some other services. Public website isn't active. Main concern is Elemental Media Package at the moment used 500GB for one of the packages this month and we are not sure why so much data is being processed. Last month, there was over 2TB of data processed.
