Question is, when you do a SNMP poll for bits in/out, are you getting the throughput for just that moment in time, or do you get say and average over the last min or so? if it is an average value, how long is the window, and is it adjustable?
Average over the poll cycle.
5min poll cycle is 5 min average.
The value read is the counter at that moment in time. Look at it again some time later and the counter will have incremented.
The difference between the two is used to determine the traffic over time.
That makes sense, TY!
