Bandwidth Usage on Statistics tab wrong

    I am finding some serious discrepancies in how ISPConfig is reporting total bandwidth usage for a server per month and my total bandwidth is reported in Cacti per month.

    This is for ISPConfig 2.2.27.

    For example, on one server, under Reseller > $Name > Statistics tab, ISPconfig is reporting 27,695 MB total usage for March 2011. My Total Bandwidth graph in Cacti is showing 81,940 MB for March 2011.

    I assume Cacti is the most accurate as it's measuring bandwidth form the network card on the server. However, I'm confused by the massive differences in the totals.

    Thats normal, as cactoy measures the bandwidth on the network interface while ispconfig uses the logfiles of the apache, ftp and email daemons.
