Switch Port Usage Stats Flipped

Hi All,

 

Forgive me if I'm overlooking something, but to me 'Usage' + 'Traffic' stats under 'Status' seem backwards. I know for sure that the machine connected to that port is receiving large amounts of data from a backup, but this is being reported as sent traffic.

Kind of a big deal

Typically networking kit (any vendor) reports usage from its perspective.  So the network device is sending lots of traffic to your client, and your client is receiving lots of traffic from the network device.

I feel like I may have noticed this when reviewing a port the other day as well.
