Is it possible these numbers are for both interfaces on the pfSense box? If so, do they include both inbound and outbound traffic for both? That would effectively double the true data transfer if traffic isn't being routed between other subnets / interfaces on the firewall. I don't have RRD loaded so this is strictly speculation on a possible cause.

We've run into a data overage situation at a datacenter... We get charged a premium per GB over 500GB (yes I know, stupid). Their reporting system seems to indicate significantly less data usages vs pfSense's RRD reporting... their billing system seems to be indicating overage similar to their reporting... Uploads seem to be growing significantly. Any idea why the pfSense box seems to be counting differently than the datacenter's metrics? We need to track down where this usage is happened, but I know users have only grown ~5% over that same period of time. Here are stats for each month: January February March April May (to 23rd) Datacenter (Upload/Download): 618.95GB/76.01GB 365.25/47.15GB 799.92/79.81GB 801.67/105.01GB 581.57/76.26GB pfSense RRD (Upload/Download): 1372.41GiB/148.91GiB 1388.65/149.60GiB 1697.71/152.24GiB 1706.53/200.86GiB 1177.95/139.55GiB Any suggestions how or why there is a mismatch?
