Hi EE,

Today we had a sudden spike on our Flash Array Storage network, something was running for 4 hours and consuming 1 GB of throughput.
We have isolated the spike down to 3 servers (virtual Vmware boxes); these servers are dedicated SQL servers training and dev environments no much activity on them normally.
I have checked to see any SQL jobs were running they weren't and restores were occurring this time.

Any ideas on how to troubleshooting this issue as we don't want this occurring tomorrow morning?

Thank you.
