Recording limits?

Author Message

I`ve been looking for a reliable program to simply keep an eye on my in/out traffic. All I`ve tested so far have been perfect single-session recorders, including NAD. For some reason, the bloody thing keeps resetting every time I reboot the program or the recorder after few GBs. Lower than ~2G amounts it does record, starting the counter from there.

For reference, here`s my tray graph.txt

Hm, let me rephrase, it doesn`t just reset, it simply ignores every value in the logs bigger than ~2G

Dear Ren,

Thank you for writing us.
We are developing the new version of NAD now. This problem will be fixed in this new version.

Thank you. Will the upcoming version be compatible with old records?
Alexander 09/26/2003 03:29 am
Unfortunately, no.
We plan to store this data in the internal database.
May be, it will be possible to import old format data to the new version. We will discuss this function.

Sincerely,
Alexander.
