OS: Network traffic monitor seems to be showing some weird metrics, please see http://imgur.com/a/OwDdI
The documentation and graph says those metrics are being displayed in kilobytes per second, but 28 MB (megabytes) is only 28672 KB (kilobytes).
1151818 in KB is 1124.82 in MB -- something is clearly wrong with the data being displayed, just to be clear graphite, nload and amazon cloudwatch are all agreeing with the values of network traffic.
Lets try to get the value of this spike on ops center graph, this is around lets say 1500000 KB which is 1465 in MB, but if we count like this: 1500000/60 KB it is ~24 MB which is much closer to what we would expect.
Seems like metric values are having standard 60 seconds resolution and are not being scaled to PerSecond.
