Network Utilization

Network Utilization Graph

The graph to the right is a real-time sampling of our network activity over the past 24 hours. The graph auto-updates every five minutes. In order to understand the graph, it is important to note that this usage is from the perspective of the MCNC end of our connection to our upstream provider, MCNC:

  • The blue line, labeled Outbound Bits per Second, represents our bandwidth usage from the Internet to the Durham campus network

  • The green area, labeled Inbound Bits per Second, represents our bandwidth usage from the Durham campus network to the Internet

  • The red line is a rolling 95th percentile of the largest of the inbound and outbound graphs; that is, 95% of the time, our bandwidth usage in the preceding 24 hours is less than that shown by the red line
