Real Time Stats... Backward?! /

Why does it say current downstream as 7k/sec, current upstream as 81k/sec, while the graph shows the opposite (lots of downstream, little upstream)?

It doesn’t say 81k / sec :slight_smile:

Well it must be wrong then :confused:

There is nothing there that downloads anything, apart from a cronjob which runs for about 20 mins every few hours… :confused:

Fr3d, it’s not wrong. It says “81”, as in 81 bytes. 81 bytes could be someone typing in a domain wrong or a spider hitting the site once regardless if it even hits a page possibly.


That’s impossible though :confused:

At 600 bytes/second (more than the max of 564bytes/sec):

600 * 60 (min) * 60 (hour) * 22 (it’s almost the 22nd of the month) = 1,140,480,000

1,140,480,000 / 1024 (KB) / 1024 (MB) / 1024 (GB) = 1.0621547698974609375

So… about 1GB. How does that equal the 35GB of bandwidth the site has used this month? :confused:

Doing the reverse:

35GB * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 = 37,580,963,840

37,580,963,840 / 22 / 24 / 60 / 60 = 19771.12996632996632996632996633

So about 19770 B/sec (~19KB/sec) on average…

This is about 35 times more than what the graph says! :eek:

Surely this must be a bug :confused:

That graph is not showing the month. It’s showing the day.


I can see it’s showing the day, but my calculations still show that the average upload should be ~19KB/sec

35GB / 22 / 24 / 60 / 60 = 0.0000184132996632996632996632996633 / GigaBytes/Second

0.0000184132996632996632996632996633 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 = 19771.12996632996632996632996633 Bytes/second = 19KBytes/second

Either I’m being completely dumb, or it’s too early in the morning… or I’m right… hammers head on wall

Edit: Maybe I’m looking at this the backwards… The Green, Downstream… that’s data being received by the server right? Like an FTP Upload?
Or is that data the server is sending to clients, like images, zip files etc?

Green downstream is outbound which should be most of the traffic on a webserver.
Blue upstream is when someone is uploading to your server via FTP, etc.

Thanks Justec :slight_smile:
