Activation Cloudflare = Bandwith x 30?

Hi all,

Yesterday evening I activated Cloudflare using domainname to create tunnel towards my home assistant (local) config.
The setup works, using the home assistant add_on and Cloudflare config.

BUT: since yesterday evening my home network is suffering from bandwith. Looking closer to the bandwith consumption, upstream and downstream, my home assistant resourcing is downstreaming +700MB while it is usually limited to 30MB.

This evening I also had a look at Cloudflare statistics and there are massive requests and bandwith to 700MB

What is going on ? The network went down, no traffic possible, needed to deactivate use of the tunnel in order to restore network and make comms possible

Please advise,

Thanks in advance,
