Last night I looked at 'my services' to get an idea how the new usage meters compared to my actual data collected by various sources internal on my network.
First, I use Manage Engine Netflow analyzer and Cacti (SNMP) to manage my router(s) and various server interfaces. My router(s) all run DD-WRT and contribute SNMP and Netflow statistics. In addition, DD_WRT has a monthly usage graph built in.
It seems that TWC Meter data has existed for my account since Mid September. To preserve an 'apples to apples' comparison, I limited my comparison to this time range.
The good news - I see very little difference between the numbers reported by the Time Warner Meter and my own internal metrics.
It does appear, however, that the TWC meter only counts download traffic. I do not know if this was an oversight on TWC part or if it is a 'feature' that will be added later....
Now its time to hold your breath for the caps.....--
Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
