# Using I/O graph how to interept bytes/tick against packet details information?

 1 Packets 3134 & 3137 are at different positions in the graph as they fall into different tick intervals. According to the bottom screenshot, you have a tick interval of 0.01 sec. Looking at the packet list, packets 3134, 3135 & 3136 all fall into the interval 14.12 - 14.12999999, packet 3137 ... fall into the tick interval 14.13 - 14.13999999. answered 18 Jun '15, 05:29 grahamb ♦ 19.8k●3●30●206 accept rate: 22% Thanks horizontal positions I already know as to why I'm talking specifically as i mention in question as well its the Y-AXIS position how is that effected? (18 Jun '15, 06:02) asad 1 That's the function of the graph, bytes per interval. The Y-Axis value is the number of bytes in packets in that interval. For the interval 14.12 - 14.12999999 there are three packets (3134-6) with a total length of 3066 bytes. For the interval 14.13 - 14.13999999 there are at least 5 packets (3137-41) with a total length of 7530 bytes. There may be more packets and bytes in the second interval but that can't be determined from your screenshot. Yet another reason why analysis by screenshot is annoying. Much easier with the actual capture file. (18 Jun '15, 06:08) grahamb ♦ Thanks you solved the riddle. So each dot is the summation of all previous dots in that specific time interval e.g 0.1 or 0.01. (18 Jun '15, 06:42) asad Not exactly, each dot is the summation of all bytes in that specific time interval (that match the applied filter if any). (18 Jun '15, 07:23) grahamb ♦
