What does your Unlimited Graph view look like?


I thought that it would be interesting to see examples of Graph views for the longest time period which is Unlimited. Here’s mine from my main laptop.

My graph shows a large drop in throughput from 100GB per day (3TB per month) down to about 300MB per day since December.

I don’t look at the Graph view very often so it took me months to notice that syncing had started copying my entire Outlook .PST file every time it changed. The outlook.pst file was a huge number of emails because the 1.3GB file size was mainly text/html as I save photos and other large files elsewhere. This is not too large considering that Outlook can handle 50GB files but the syncing “problem” was basically wasting bandwidth.

I decided to blitz my stored emails. I cleaned out so many that I’ve now only got a hundred or so. I didn’t actually do this to reduce bandwidth but the result is obvious in the graph. My ISP would be happy I did this but as I’m on an unlimited data plan there wasn’t any cost benefit to me.

I only have seven months history because, although I’ve used GlassWire since the earliest versions, I keep resetting GlassWire to try out new features or to try reproduce bugs.



That looks cool and that’s interesting about the Outlook .PST file!

Below is a screenshot from one of our first users who detected malware his antivirus had missed. It is always one of my favorite graphs although it’s not “unlimited”. I actually just did a clean install of GlassWire as I’m testing some new features :sunglasses: otherwise I’d post my latest graph too!



Mine is below. And BTW as similar to your graph, it seems the message balloons are only limited to recent months?

Inconsistent Alerts Linking Behavior

At present the balloons are visible for about three months. My last one is exactly 3 months ago on November 11 2018. I don’t remember them ever extending to more than three months (at least for the last three years) but I could be wrong.

By the way, you can see that the balloons only appear in a shaded area the area that contains shading in the Unlimited Graph view. Right now that shaded area is about 95 days for me which is slightly longer so maybe the balloons are visible for slightly more than three months.

The shading indicates time away from the computer so many of us will see continuous shading in the Unlimited Graph view. In your graph you have larger gaps which I guess means that either you spend a lot more time on your computer, that you have some software simulating mouse or keyboard input, or that you have set Begin idle mode in x minutes to much more than the 5 minute default.

To illustrate the transition to shading, I’ve copied a section of my original graph above:


Maybe is about the old topic: graph looks differently on different resolution. My screen is kind of high dpi compared to average. Here is a different view without maximize the window. The big gaps is the time that I wan’t using this computer.


Yes, of course, I hadn’t thought of a high DPI screen. That made your original picture even more interesting.
