Now that the usage meter is working properly (great work) it would be great to see some progress on the history graph...

Looking at my history graph today, I see a common occurance, being the times can jump extremely...
eg.
Range: 6/06/08 0:00:00 - 6/06/08 11:59:59
00:05:42
00:20:46
00:35:51
00:50:59
01:06:03
10:54:41
11:09:42
11:24:48
11:39:49

As noticable from above, the time marker points are varied (not on the hour), and tend to go up roughly 15 minutes...but the main problem being the recorded times between 1am and 11am...there is none, it jumps so nothing is showen between those hours.

All plans could beniefet from having a more accurate history graph, but particually those on the Torrent plan as the hours not showen, are the hours they would want to know when and how much they downloaded exactly.

May I suggest:
1) to have the time broken up into hours, on the hour...
2) to show every hour (if requested)

I have already suggested this to Mav, and he has said something is in the works, so fingers crossed...
What do other Torrenters think?

The data for the history graph is only collected when the usage meter is running

?

If a user has the default configuration, it runs at boot, so the usage meter is always running (as on my pc anyway)

Edit:
Arhhhh...I think I just cottoned on to what ya saying...
My laptop has the usage meter, and the times not showen in the history graph would be when i switch my laptop off, but I leave my desktop on for downloading...but that does not have usage meter...

I will install the usage meter on that now to test that theory (if it can be on ME)

If correct, cheers for that Filterer

Don't think that worked Filterer...

I successfully installed the usage meter on my other pc, which I leave running all night/all day to do the downloading, and the history graph within still displays a simular jump...

This time, it shows no data increase during the hours of 12am to 11am, and then jumps 7GB from 11am to 12pm...

I would have thought, the information displayed within the history graph is pulled directly from xnet (like the usage meter itself), rather than only display/graph data used when the usage meter is running/pc turned on?

Maverick, clarification?

Na dude, sorry - it logs it to a csv file on the computer its running on have a look at "C:\Program Files\Xnet Usage Monitor\XNetUsage.log"

If you want to see history every 15mins you will have to look at it on your server, on transfer the history file from the server onto the laptop

There was a fault at around 12am last night that knocked out usage meter updates until someone looked at it.  So, basically, until I woke up and found a message from Maverick on my phone ;).

The meter provides a feed giving you your total usage at the time you request the update.  Hence, at one update it might say 100MiB used; the next, 200MiB.  The usage is then logged on your PC, and the graph is built from the log.  There are several logistical problems that make this the ideal way of pushing data to users :).
