Hi everyone!

I want to export a graphic with the number of packets/second of my capture. The problem is that I have a lot of packets at second 13, and any packet at second 14, for example. So, I would like to apply the smooth option of IO Graphs in Y axis, but I don't understand the different between M.avg 4 , M.avg 8 , M.avg 16 , M.avg 32 , M.avg 64...

Can someone explain to me the difference between the smooth?

Thanks in advance!

Smooth means that it will not graph the value per tick but will accumulate 4,8,16,32 ... ticks and built an average over those and graph this average (of 4,16,32 etc). Regards Matthias
