Overview

1 - Where stores Net-Traffic the log data?

2 - When I look into the Traffic Overview, there are some days missing. Why is that?

3 - I have a monthly traffic quota from my provider. When I check my provider info page and the Net-Traffic overview, I have different amounts of traffic for the same time period!?

4 - When I run ipacsum on command line and check the Net-Traffic overview, I get different amounts of traffic for the same time period!?

5 - I want to use the email notification function but when I want to send a testemail I get an error like "function not implemented". What should I do?


1 - Where stores Net-Traffic the log data?
Net-Traffic has no own log data. Net-Traffic is only a WebGUI based logviewer of the ipac-ng log data. You may know ipacsum, this is the commandline based logviewer of the ipac-ng logs which comes with standard IPCop.

2 - When I look into the Traffic Overview, there are some days missing. Why is that?
The ipac-ng log data is summarized from time to time by IPCop (e.g. all log data of one week is summarized to one log entry). This is done to have less log entries for better performance.

3 - I have a monthly traffic quota from my provider. When I check my provider info page and the Net-Traffic overview, I have different amounts of traffic for the same time period!?
Your Provider may has a different accounting system, he may count every dialin with X MB or something.
You can run ipacsum for the same time period to check if there is something wrong with Net-Traffic:
ipacsum -s __STARTTIME__ -e __ENDTIME__
Replace __STARTTIME__ and __ENDTIME__ with the corresponding time period. Use:
ipacsum -h
for ipacsum help.

4 - When I run ipacsum on command line and check the Net-Traffic overview, I get different amounts of traffic for the same time period!?
There where already some users who reported this but when I asked about some more details they always didn't answer to my questions!
So if you are in the situation that ipacsum and Net-Traffic show different amounts of traffic for the same time period please send me an email, I will ask you about your log data so I can reproduce it on a test machine.

5 - I want to use the email notification function but when I want to send a testemail I get an error like "function not implemented". What should I do?
Try another email account of a different email provider. I, for example, can't get my GMX account(s) working, with another email provider there were no issues.
