SummaryWhen generating a PDF report on applications, it is possible to misinterpret data that is appearing in the 'top 10 outbound applications' pie chart with the 'top 100 inbound applications' table to appear that there is a discrepancy in data.
OverviewWhen creating a PDF report, one of the options is to include application statistics for the top applications both inbound and outbound. This will let administrators and monitors see which applications are using bandwidth. The report, which looks like the below image, will show a pie chart of application information with labels showing the top ten used applications, followed by tables showing the Top 100 Inbound and Outbound applications. This report is generated by creating a scheduled report and checking the 'detailed subnet' option, and ensuring that 'applications' are checked.
The graph on the left is depicting the information for 'inbound' applications and the one on the right is depicting 'outbound' applications. The first table shown is 'inbound' applications, and the second table is 'outbound applications'. As a result, if comparing the right graph with the first table, data will appeared to be skewed. In some instances, it might be seen that the inbound applications graph does not render on the page - if the system is extraordinarily busy, for example, and in that case, with onl ythe one graph, it might appear as though the graph relates to the top table. In either case, the title of the graph will show what data set the information belongs to.
