Traffic graphs inconsistency



Hello, I use SNMP traffic sensors to monitor switch interface utilization (Cisco). But it behaves kind of strange. When I look at Live data tab, it shows one top value, when I look to 2 day tab, it shows different top value, as well as when I choose any other tab (30 days od one year). How is this possible? Thank you for clarification. Jan

The graphs show averages of several data samples to fit the range. This means that the greater the graph range, the more the graph values will even out.

These graphs should still give you a quick overview of the development over time. To see the actual data, please use the "historic data" tab.
