System Monitoring - Network?

I'm pretty sure it was like this in 6.5 too, but I'm running 6.6.0 now and these network graphs still seem pretty much useless.  Looks like it's just graphing a counter and then trying to plot it against time, eventhough that isn't really a valid way of displaying a histogram of network bandwidth. 

 

I guess the question is:  Does Aruba not see a problem with these sysmon graphs?

To me, that looks like the total traffic over time.  If you have a network that is not busy, where the total traffic rarely changes, it does not look particularly useful.  If you have a busy network, it can tell you the total requests that are being serviced over time and if there are spikes in total usage.  That is what it looks like on the face of it.

Yes, I think it is total traffic over time.  The time range isn't adjustable beyond 30 minutes, which makes it tough to find out spikes or even much of a trend.  Also, by graphing total traffic, you can't easily see any dips in traffic for reference.  The scale at which the graph plots (one is @ 100G in the examples) also quickly becomes oblivious to nuances in the traffic patterns.  If this is what Aruba was going for, then I guess I'll just express my disappointment and move on.
