Overview

This article explains why the NTA charts show high bandwidth utilization when selecting a short time frame but show a much lower value when selecting a larger time frame.

Environment

All NTA versions

Detail

The chart appearance is affected by the number of data points that can fit on the chart. Shorter time frames have less data points and each data point can be displayed on the chart while larger time frames only show averages values for each data point.

This all comes down to the number of data points that comfortably fit on the chart.

The following are examples of a scenario where bandwidth utilization for 75 minutes is higher than that of bandwidth utilization for three days.
