Usage by Month
On the Control Pages there is a break down of the usage by month, this is shown as a table and as a graph. The table includes the 'uptime' of the line. The uptime is a percentage of the whole month and is based on our per-second monitoring of the line.
Usage by Day
Also shown is the usage per day from the past 2 weeks or so... This table includes a Packet Ratio column. This is a ratio of packets sent and received from your line. This statistic isn't overly useful, but may show of a line is being DOS'd. Typically, the figure would be around 100% +/- 30
