Hello community. I hope you have an answer which clarifies my confusion about how to calculate the traffic in the right way. I am reading the bytes_received variable and want to calculate the traffic used. Now I read at least 5 articles about Kibibyte and Kilobyte stuff and when I thought I got it the other article tells something else.
My question is: Do I have to use binary basis (2^x) and divide by 1024 or decimal basis (10^x) and divide by 1000 to calculate the traffic from the bytes stored in the variable? Thank you for your help!

Openvpn provides bytes .. Calculate your exponent as is appropriate to you ..claudi wrote:I am reading the bytes_received variable and want to calculate the traffic used. Now I read at least 5 articles about Kibibyte and Kilobyte stuff
