    I am having a problem comprehending cpanel bandwidth graphs. I look at a daily graph for say site A. The graph suggests 8M (Is this megabytes?) Yet the printed data on the lower page says 359 Megabytes.

    What am I missing here? This is consistent for all accounts. I assume I am misunderstanding something.

    Thanks

    It may, but the problem I am talking about is what's being shown in the graphs as opposed to the raw numbers. This bug doesn't explain this.

    The graph says I used 10 Megabytes on day 1. Yet the numbers below say I used 1400 Megabytes on day 1.

    Cpanel says it is a bug as well and will be patched on 472 build. Mn there support was quite fast to reply. Good to see.

    For the graph that shows the 8 M or 10 M measurement, does the y axis measurement say "Bits/sec"? It is actually a measurement of the download speed or transfer rate. It is confusing that CPanel calls this "traffic"; traffic to me is synonymous with "usage". You may see another graph measuring "traffic" with the y axis title "Bytes transferred" which is what people expect. I will submit this request to Cpanel support to clarify what they mean.
