    Hi,great soft ...but : my network statistic counter shows only 4GB max. then its jump to zero...
    and i need to show up to TBytes...

    ist a BUG? or only wrong settings?

     
    • This problem lays within the OS (*unix) itself, it uses a 32bit counter for the network traffic thus 'only' 2^32 = 4294967296 bytes can be counted before it loops back to 0.

      You'll need some other program to do this for you :(

       
    • i made a workaround for this.  follow the instructions at this page:

      these fixes are currently for linux only, but the ideas can easily be applied to other platforms
