What is the Decimal Point standing for?



Hello, and first of all thanks for the help. I am a Newbie for PRTG . My version is PRTG Network Monitor and it is a German Installation. Now I do some reports and would like to know for what the Decimalm Points stand for. For example. I have the Network traffic of 2.650 KByte Does it mean two thousand or does it mean just two.

Thanks in advance Bye Marvin

This depends on the country / location settings of the computer running PRTG. So, if you have a German Windows, and it is set to use the German nomenclature (where the period is a thousands divisor), the example in case would be 2650 KB.

Hi Patrick, thanks for that quick response. Yes it is a german installation and the settings are also use the german nomenclature. So the decimal point is the separater for thousand.

Thank again

Bye Marvin
