I'm trying to use Net Activity Diagram (NAD). It's is really good, but I
notice that apparentelly the Input and Output defitinions is inverted.
It's is so strange that I think I'm confused.

The INPUT should be what my computer receives and OUTPUT what
that my computer sends. During a download, the OUTPUT grows
quickly and INPUT slowly. BUT a download is a INPUT, and this should
be quickly, not the opposite.

Mauricio Lima,

Thank you for writing us.
What is your Windows version? Do you use any virtual machine environment?

My computer OS is Windows XP SP2 and Yes, I use virtual machines (VM) a lot. I only use VMs. The Windows XP is the host for VMs and have few applications installed on real machine, but the NAD is one of them, and in the configuration I set only the 'Local Connection' as network device to exclude the VMWare Network adapter.
My computer is connected to Internet through a router. Could it be the problemn ? And the VMs could be another problemn to diagnose the apparentelly inverted traffic indications ?

Mauricio Lima,

Thank you for your feedback.
Yes, we saw such behavior of NAD under VMs.
We will try to fix this problem in the future versions of NAD.

Thank you for your help.
