I am seeing odd behavior within my Cosmos container. Recently I am seeing spikes of ~20-50GB of data and corresponding spikes of documents. It drops back close to the original size within 1-20 minutes. The index also follows the spikes and drops. All of the other metrics look to follow normal patterns. Any ideas on where to look or what this might be?
