Should the "traffic in" on one side of a point-to-point T1 equal the "traffic out" on the other?



I have an issue with my T1 point to point and slow traffic. I have a Rici T1 Ethernet converter at each end. while looking at the data over a period of time I see that the in on the T1 side aand the out on side b are not even close to equal. over a typical period the data out is 19 kbit/s and 201,800 kbytes total in data is 179 kbit/s and 1,866,000 kbytes total.

Dear Jim,

if the sensors really monitor the two endpoints of one connection the traffic should be very similar, if of course the sensors have the same settings.

best regards.
