Reading Interface bits/sec Total Bandwidth

#1 Post by mikecarel » Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:26 pm

Hi to all;

I'm just wondering how to interpret the total bandwidth generated by rrd graph using "Interface bits/sec Total Bandwidth" graph template and "cisco router" host template. The total bandwidth In/Out seems to be very high compared to the actual Curr, Ave, Max values.

Hope's someone can explain to me why.


thank you.

Possibly you're comparing bits to bytes?

tnx for the reply.

sorry my fault i missed out that its a capital "B" which means byte and not bits "b". But it's still confusing how the graph reads the "total bandwidth", is it the total traffic traversing in my link since from the start of probe? I can't get it when getting the sum of the IN or OUT traffic in the csv file.
