Right now 3428565422 active users on site
I needed to monitor the traffic of my website which I used Real-Time Overview.
While monitoring the amount of users shot up to 3428565422 active users on site, it hovered around that amount for a few minutes and then dropped again to the usual average of about 20.
Any thoughts? I've been monitoring because the traffic over some evenings (8 hours) was recorded at over 70gb

Real-time will also show hits from the measurement protocol; which is another way to push data to GA. It's possible that you or someone else (referral spam) pushed data to your account. There is another section on the community here that deals with that topic (if you are not familiar).
Have you dug into your reports to identify from where (source medium, etc.) the traffic spikes are coming?
