Outbound Transfer Quota

My Gmail regularly receives mail with the following content:

"Your account, with the username caocuong, has exceeded the transfer quota threshold for notification. It has used 3734GB of 3645GB or 102.44%.

So, what's the problem with my web? Can you explain yourself to.

The messages you're receiving indicate that your Linode account has gone past its allocated network transfer pool. This can mean several things. If your Linode typically receives a lot of traffic, this may be a normal occurrence for your use case. If you don't normally experience this amount of traffic, you may want to check for signs of a compromise or a misconfigured application. This Linode Community post provides a helpful start for this type of investigation.

You'll be charged $0.01 for each GB of transfer used over the quota; you can consider resizing your Linode to gain a larger transfer quota if this traffic is normal for your use case. I'd also recommend checking out our Network Transfer Quota guide for more information.
