## Network traffic per second

Hello all!

I have a question about how to approach a problem I have with a calculation.

My data looks like the following:

 Time SourceAdress DestinationAdress Bytes 10:05 10.10.10.10 99.99.99.99 10 10:10 11.11.11.11 66.66.66.66 20 10:15 11.11.11.11 67.67.67.67 10 10:20 11.11.11.11 66.66.66.66 12 10:25 12.12.12.12 77.77.77.77 24 10:30 10.10.10.10 77.77.77.77 30

It is connected to a database that updates these fields automatically. Now what I would like to achieve is to calculate how much bytes per seconds/ per minute and per 10 minutes are sent.

I am not sure how to approach this so it would be greatly appreciated if someone could help/ give me a push in the right direction!

(tips about how to visualise this type of data are also very welcome)

Hi @Anonymous,

Based on my assumption, you could create measures like below, and display results in card visual.

`sent bytes per seconds = SUM(table8[Bytes])/DATEDIFF(MIN(table8[Time]),MAX(table8[Time]),SECOND)sent bytes per minute = SUM(table8[Bytes])/DATEDIFF(MIN(table8[Time]),MAX(table8[Time]),MINUTE)sent bytes per 10 minutes = SUM(table8[Bytes])/(DATEDIFF(MIN(table8[Time]),MAX(table8[Time]),MINUTE)/10)`

If it doesn't meet your requirement, please provide more description about how to calculate "bytes per seconds/ per minute and per 10 minutes are sent". It would be better you can show desired putput with examples.

I am sorry the question was not really clear, however the answer you provided worked perfectly for me!

One small thing I was wondering if the measure "Sent bytes per 10 minutes" shouldnt be like this instead:

`sent bytes per 10 minutes = SUM(table8[Bytes])/(DATEDIFF(MIN(table8[Time]),MAX(table8[Time]),MINUTE)*10)`

Perhaps I misunderstood the measure, but I got the feeling that you would get the result of 1 minute / 10 instead of 10 whole minutes.

Thanks!

Hi @Anonymous,

Yes. As you said, if the result should be 1 minute / 10 instead of 10 whole minutes, the measure should be changed to:

`sent bytes per 10 minutes = SUM(table8[Bytes])/(DATEDIFF(MIN(table8[Time]),MAX(table8[Time]),MINUTE)*10)`
