Status/Traffic Graph - Incorrect Label?
« on: December 08, 2017, 05:50:08 am »
Hi,

I was tinkering with my bandwidth limiter & observing the LAN/WAN traffic graphs if my rules were correctly playing out when I realized the Bandwidth In/Out labels in the LAN interface graph were interchanged. Bandwidth In is for LAN In & Bandwidth Out is for LAN Out, right? Or is this by design & I am wrong? Please refer to attached screenshot to see what I mean.

Thanks
Edwin

Looks normal to me, the traffic enters pfSense via the WAN interface and leaves pfSense via the LAN interface.

Hi,

Yeah it looks very normal indeed, and the traffic came in thru one door & exited thru another just right as expected ... until I realized that I should count how many left by counting those who exited ... not by counting those who came in. In other words, for me those marked as OUT in the graph should be labeled OUT in the list. This screen is traffic statistics for the LAN interface only, not combined WAN/LAN.

It's just labelling anyway. Thanks.
