Bandwidth - Last 24 Hours

The Bandwidth - Last 24 Hours menu displays bandwidth usage from the last 24 hours.

The time window is 24 hours and data resolution is 2 minutes. Thus, it displays a maximum of 24 hours of data which is sampled a maximum of every 2 minutes.

Hours: changes the time period of the graph data displayed.

Avg. applies a percentile display. This can show how a data point compares to the total distribution over time.


  • Uniform - scales graphs to the maximum value recorded on all interfaces.
  • Per if (Per Interface) - scales the graphs based on data from one interface only.


  • kbit/KB - displays bandwidth volume data in kilobits/Kilobytes (x1,000).
  • Mbit/MB - displays bandwidth data in Megabits/Megabytes (x1,000,000).


  • Solid - represents usage with an area graph.
  • Line - represents usage with a single line graph showing only maximum values.

Color - switches between various pre-specified color schemes for the graph.

[reverse] - reverses the graph's color scheme. Thus, a device traced in blue is traced in orange and vice versa.

Cursor-Tracking Readout: Bandwidth graphs heave a a Cursor-Tracking Readout. Moving your mouse over the graph makes the graph display the following at the top right: Day of the Week, Time, and Bandwidth usage. These update when you move the mouse.

The Cursor-Tracking Readout disappears after 5 intervals: that is, 10 seconds in Real-Time, 10 minutes in Last 24 Hours, etcetera.

Mouse-Click Readout: Bandwidth graphs also have a Mouse-Click readout: Clicking on the graph will make the date/time/bandwidth numbers display beside the mouse cursor.

Mouse-click readout is static. It does not update with graph movement or scaling.
