The summary window lets you monitor the total throughput, the number of packets, hosts, conversations, protocols and network cards on the network. Charts for bytes and packets consists of two charts, one line chart and one gauge chart. The line chart displays the bytes or packets over time, while the gauge chart shows the average amount of bytes or packets as well as the field's value in the last interval.
Interval charts for conversations, protocols and network cards are line charts and show the amount of conversations, protocols or network cards over time.
The gauge chart in the summary window shows the average and the amount of bytes or packets in the last interval. The max value of the gauge is set to the highest peak of bytes or packets per default. Right click on the gauge chart to configure the max value for the gauge. In normal mode the max value is set to the highest peak. By setting a max value the max value of the gauge is not set larger than the given max value. The gauges max value might be set lower than the set max value if the highest peak is smaller than the max value.
