Description Marcin Zajaczkowski 2006-11-12 15:51:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061107 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
When I send data through network interface gnome-system-monitor shows double value of speed of transmintted data and normal speed for received data (Note: should be near to zero, because it's (almost) way one transmision).

Similar situation is with downloading data.

I think it could be related with xen and xen's interfaces mapping.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start outgoing transmission to another host with something which shows its speed (like scp)
2. Show chart (and labels) in system-monitor - network history

Actual Results:
Outgoing speed is doubled. Incomming speed in like normal outgoing (should me much lower).

Expected Results:
Normal outgoing speed and minimal incomming speed.

Additional info:
I have another problem with network under xen. Netspeed applet 0.13 allows only to show data related to xenbr0 (not eth0) where traffic is alomost none (in bytes).

This bug was reported against FC6, which is now end of life.  Please retest on
Fedora 7 or later, and if you still experience problems, open a new bug.
