Q. How does InterMapper compute traffic statistics?

A. InterMapper uses ifInOctets and ifOutOctets to compute the Receive and Transmit bytes/second values, respectively.

The Receive and Transmit packets/second numbers are computed using the sum of the (ifInUcastPkts + ifInNUcastPkts) and (ifOutUcastPkts + ifOutNUcastPkts) respectively.
