Help me understand traffic graphs
This graph screenshot was taken right after running a Speedtest through Speedtest.net. The speed test first tests the download speed, followed by the upload speed.
On my WAN graph, I see a spike for inbound traffic, followed by a spike for outbound traffic. This is what I would expect when testing download followed by upload.
On my LAN graph (labeled here as trusted) however, I see that the download test gets recorded as outbound traffic, and the upload test gets labeled as inbound traffic.
Why are these inverted? Should they not match up? Do I have something configured incorrectly, or am I just not understanding how traffic flow is graphed?
Incoming WAN traffic gets pushed out of LAN to your PC.
Well when you put it like that, it's so obvious. Thank you!
