Live Bandwidth Reports - Cipafilter Documentation

Manual - Live Bandwidth Reports

Live Bandwidth Reports is an enhanced version of the earlier bandwidth-reporting system which employs a friendlier interface with a number of new options.  In addition to displaying data using several different chart formats, it is also possible to view a near-real-time indication of the Cipafilter's total bandwidth utilization.

The first time this feature is accessed, you will be prompted to enter a maximum upload and download speed in kbps.  These values should be set in a manner that corresponds to the bandwidth capacity available on the unit's primary Internet connection.  Setting these values calibrates the meters and charts displayed in each reporting view so that the numbers reflect the total bandwidth capacity.  For example, the ratio of bandwidth that is available versus bandwidth that is in use is calculated based on these values.  (Providing incorrect numbers here may therefore result in inaccurate calculation of utilization ratios, but it should not affect the "raw" bandwidth data.)
