RRD Summary - Last month traffic count incorrect
I'm still getting this same issue with a brand new install of version 2.1.1 and still present with 2.1.2 & 2.1.3.
Is there a bug reported for this still?
This has been an issue for several years, where Status: RRD Summary's, previous month if just a large made up number.
It shows mine as :
In 4699097 MBytes
Out 410561 MBytes
Total 5109658 MBytes
Will this be fixed?
any update to this?
it should either be mbps or change the formula for the calculation.
I'm on 2.3.2-RELEASE
You are better off using the new Traffic Totals package as it is set to replace the RRD Summary package.
Someone has submitted a Pull Request that should fix previous month though, if anyone wants to test the patch:
This must be a relatively new package. I've been using pfSense for years and didn't know it existed until someone in my office showed me today.
If you are referring to Traffic Totals, then yes it's new. It's basically a fancier version of the old vnstat2 (except written from scratch).
Is this fixed yet? I'm not sure I believe this total for last month:
In 7715977 MBytes
Out 3420302 MBytes
Total 11136279 MBytes
That is possible on a 100Mb/s FiOS connection, and I do make heavy use of PSVue, but 7TB still seems a bit extreme. I'm on 2.3.2.
Threw the new status_rrd_summary that's waiting for approval (dropped https://raw.githubusercontent.com/razzfazz/FreeBSD-ports/7ee34982f851c3290b3f5c95999934f92ed8ec31/sysutils/pfSense-pkg-RRD_Summary/files/usr/local/www/status_rrd_summary.php in /usr/local/www/) and these are the new numbers:
In 640450 MBytes
Out 297139 MBytes
Total 937589 MBytes
With the old graphs gone I don't have anything to compare this to though. Verizon does not offer any type of "meter".
Is this fixed yet?
Not in the package, no… The version from https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-ports/pull/185 works properly.

RRD Summary is not accurate. Over time, RRD reduces the accuracy of data by averaging it. This is why the higher resolution options are only available at shorter timeframes when looking at the monitoring graphs.
Simply put, as the resolution of the data decreases, so does the accuracy of the data. For a general view of traffic over a period of time in a graph, this isn't usually an issue. But if you're looking for a definitive number as to the amount of traffic you moved over a period of time, RRD is not what you should be using.
You should install the Status_Traffic_Totals package, which uses vnstat to count the exact amount of data that travels over the interfaces of your system. It will also provide hourly, daily, and monthly graphs of the exact data usage, along with tables with the numbers.
I just merged PR# 185
