Glasswire shows nearly three times what the Hughesnet Status Meter does. Is the considerable difference due to compression?
Interesting. The above difference was from the past three days. When I did the Anniversary updates on all three computers I noticed the two were vastly different for that thirty day period. Many GBs.
Now this is interesting. If I go by the usage history on my status meter, it's 438MB on 9/6, 415 on 9/5 and 806 on 9/4. I'm assuming that the actual line for those dates represents the total for the 24 hours of that date. If this is the case, then the "front" of the Status Meter doesn't correspond with what the usage history says, and today isn't even on the usage history yet. That's 1659MB for those three days (9/4, 9/5 and 9/6 in the usage history). Hmmm. So, again, the usage history doesn't match what the "front" of the status meter says I have used, which is now adding up to 688MB between the Anytime and Bonus. Ugh.
I'm certainly glad that I don't really need to figure out just what is going on as I never use more than what I have. LOL.
My local is only 16.4MB, so a drop in the bucket, but the more I look at the differences between the usage history on the HSM and the front part of the meter, the more confused I get. It doesn't match AT ALL. You'd figure Hughesnet would match Hughesnet. LOL.
Does that legacy usage history site still work? Do you know what the address is?
When I add up 9/4, 9/5 and 9/6 in the usage history, it's way over what the front of the Status Meter says I've used, combined. Right now it's 688MB for the front of the meter, and 1659MB in the usage history, and that's not even including today's data yet. I'm perplexed.
Why, oh why, did I open this can of worms?
