Time/Date Range in Reports



Lets say i run a report for the previous month on a Internet circuit and I run the report with a 1 hour interval for each day. When i get the report back and see a certain bandwidth usage # (in mbits/s) showing in the sum speed (Traffic in & Traffic out) column, is that the cumulative total amount used for that time period or just the amount used at the end of that interval? I'm wanting to get an accurate reading of bandwidth used at any point of time during a day.

the 'Sum'-values (directly beneath the graphs) in the report usually refer to the entire report period (so should apply for the whole month).

best regards.

Actually what i need to find out is this.

For example, on one day between 11:57 am and 11:58 am (being that the report was run with 1 min intervals) the Sum(speed) volume shows "2 mbit/s" for that time interval. Is this the total (cumulative) bandwidth used for that minute interval, an average for that time period or just what bandwidth that happened to be measured at the beginning/end of that interval?

For the speed-value it's an average. The corresponding volume is a total value of the traffic in this minute.
