I have a question about the graph. When I click on a peak and it shows me some amount of traffic in the bottom left, just what exactly does it show me? Take this example of some peak in the graph. It’s not shown in the screenshots, but the very highest point of the peak shows 1.6 GB. For comparison, I looked at different points of the peak, like so:
In the above picture, it shows some 900 MB. I clicked slightly off peak, as can be seen. Now I click a tiny amount to the right, as can be seen in the picture below:
As can be seen in the picture above, suddenly, it shows 1.6 GB! That is almost double the amount. But my point of inquiry didn’t change much, it’s just a couple seconds off from before. I wanted to know what numbers I was really working with, so I went to Usage and checked the peak out. Sadly, I can only look at a minimal time window of 1 hour in Glasswire, so the accuracy is a bit limited.
In this third picture above, I marked the area for which the traffic is shown from the Usage tab. There are a couple questions I have about this issue as a whole:
- How do I find out what amount of traffic comprises a peak if the peak’s duration is less than 1 hour?
- How am I supposed to read the ‘Graph’ graph with respect to traffic amounts?
- Why does a minutely different click position lead to completely different measurement results?
- What am I really shown in the bottom left when I click on the graph?
- What is up with the vertical unit on the graph, which is not in traffic over time, but total data amount?
- What is the amount of horizontal time window for the vertical unit? As in, a peak that hits a 1 GB line will not just have 1 GB of traffic, right? So what is the horizontal bin size for the vertical unit?
I find the graph pretty, but really, really, really hard to interpret when I need actual information rather than a general wonky idea of whats happening.
