Different bandwidth usage reported for different data views

Hey guys,

I was doing some testing and found that different data views yield different result for software services and total bandwidth usage. Any particular reason why?



Hi Christopher

how did you get there?

Can you export that report perhaps?

I tried using 3 different views but they all came up the same

Hi Ulf,

Sure! Here you go:

In 12.4 we have a new data view - Layer 2 Data, and that's the one that has the biggest difference. I added Network Link Data and noticed it has some differences, but not as drastic as Layer 2 Data.

The Layer 2 data view, has some missing dimensions (e.g. Link Name), so it makes filtering in the same way as you can for other data views impossible. Meaning the data from the Layer 2 data view isn't directly comparable with other data views. I've raised this with product support, and they plan to address it.
