can we trust VMBU figures?

yesterday I did some downloads between 0600 and 0700 and I know that the NetWorx figure are pretty accurate at 72Mb but VMBU has only shown  42Kb that is a big difference

Re: can we trust VMBU figures?

Can you give us some more readings from VMBU so we can compare them to the networx screengrab that you've provided? I'd be interested to see if you're seeing this happen during other times too.

So that implies the records were lost or unaccounted for, at the time that 'pierre_pierre ' is interested in ?

Re: can we trust VMBU figures?

didnt get up so early this morning, but this is the 27th figures, and as Puliegh says, James has no records for 6 an7 oclock
My download was the Win7 update over 60 M plus others , it could be that it does a reboot during this time and PN looses it?

Hi there,
There was some usage lag that night which could account for the lack of data there. Usually it just means a delay in the data reporting which could be why that's happened.

Re: can we trust VMBU figures?

Has the "delay in the data reporting" caught up yet ?    Undecided
Do you have the missing data that 'pierre_pierre' was interested in ?   Huh

Re: can we trust VMBU figures?

no it hasnt caught up.  had some thoughts as above.
I am on the SamKnows monitor and had a  problem with their router, got the new one yesterday and that recorded 42 M last night, my usage is OK, but it does take a chunk out of my 10G allowance and doesnt show on NetWorx
