Bandwidth Usage Table Accuracy

Post by Tareq »

When i compare the data usage between gargoyle and isp , i found a difference.

The isp give me 18 gigabyte ber month ,, when i finshed my gigabytes , i checkd gargoyle total data bandwidth and i found it less , about 15.5 gigabyte.

Another thing

I tested the data usage by using (datausage meter app.) and i found a data-usage difference between my gargoyle router and the app.

why this difference?

They all use different metrics and algorithms to measure your data.

Your ISP wants to charge you for EVERY SINGLE BIT you send through their pipes.
Gargoyle i believe counts actual throughput.

There is going to be discrepancies.

Also if you are on an ADSL connection or anything with a significant overhead (approx 15%) then that can cause a difference.
Your figures come out to just about 15% too which is interesting.
