    Default Changes in PDF and Online Reports?

    I've noticed two changes between Wednesday's reports and Thursday's reports. I've attached pics to show what I can't make clear with words...

    The first is that I have a new site called "Others" that I have no idea what it means. One of my users reports "Others" as her top-rated site in MB in the online reports.

    Also, Thursday's now reports sizes in Bytes instead of MB.

    Bug? Feature? Others?

    I believe dmorris answered this in another thread. Others is basically the rest of the traffic combined that is not part of the top ten.

    I searched the forums for "others" and "reports" but didn't find anything, hence my post.

    Generally, it doesn't seem useful that "everything not in the top 10" should show up as the top Site, or even as my second-from-the-top Host. I could probably guess that the aggregate of everything not in the top 10 would be in the top 10, so I don't think it belongs in the mix. The report is a list of top 10 Hosts or top 10 Sites. "Others" is neither.

    Any word on the Bytes vs. Megabytes change?

    I should add that by having "Others" in the top 10, it pushes someone/something real to number 11 and therefore off the list. Look at the two pie charts I attached and you'll see what I mean. On the second chart, "Others" became almost 50% of my traffic. I think that Untangle should reconsider this inclusion.

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea what that means or how it applies to the changes between Wednesday's and Thursday's reports.

    BTW, I'm not looking for a summary report. I'm looking to have the category "Others" removed from the Top 10 lists, where IMO it is completely useless, and didn't exist until yesterday.

    Also want to find out why the MB went to B.

    For item 1, create a request in bugzilla
    For item 2, divide by 1.000.000

    For item 1, will do.
    For item 2, thanks for the decimal trick (I'll remember that next time I see a 1000000000000 byte hard drive), but that's still another strange change to make.

    You have setting in automatic upgrade?

    And based in my signature I make the "decimal trick" in base 2, too bad

    That must have been it. Maybe they'll go back to the old way in the next version.

    I found jcoffin's post explaining the "Other" category, but it still doesn't make sense to put it in the Top 10 list. Seems like it belongs at the bottom as its own category (if it's that important to have there, which it really isn't because the total is elsewhere in the report under Bandwidth Usage).
