Just playing around with the various graphing options and I think I may have encountered a bug /display error in R2 on my RT-AX86U?

For the "Compare Usage" graph, if I set the Options to Days (and GB and Logarithmic but that doesn't make a difference) I get the following display:-

The bar graphs for "Current 7 days - Received" and "Previous 7 days - Sent" overlap and obscure each other.
I presume that all 4 bars are meant to be side by side and not overlap each other?

Is anyone else seeing this?
I've tried a few different Browsers with the same result.

Are you setting your browser full screen?

What resolution is the monitor set to?

@L&LD

No, but it's set to a very large "window", and making the window wider does not change the horizontal size of the graph or fix the problem, if that's what you mean?
For the heck of it I DID set the app to be "full screen" but it also made no difference ...
Also tried it in Firefox and Safari to see if it worked differently to my default Chrome.
I even got really down and dirty and resorted to trying Microsoft Edge - no difference with any of them.

:)

What resolution is the monitor set to?

It's an older 27" iMac (Late 2013, pre-5K displays) so it's running at its default "native" resolution of 2560 X 1440.

So I take it you're not seeing the same issue on your setup?

This is more or less by design. This uses the JY charting function common to many of the @Jack Yaz scripts, and when we were speccing out these new interactive charts initially, there was no column overlap.

The issue was that with the number of data columns I wanted to show - and the width of the columns -, there was no space between the columns from the various days on the X-axis, making it difficult to parse. So we ended up with the view you see, with overlap, though the colors should be transparent enough that you should be able to eyeball all the column values.

It seems most obvious on larger monitors, and I can confirm what you see. A key driver is also the width of the Asus UI, which isn't scalable (IIRC there's only 760 pixels in width for the charts).

Hi dev_null
I had my rollover date set at 14 month. Today ( 15th ) I still see this message
You have used 46.95% (234.74GB) of your 500.00GB cycle allowance; the next cycle starts on day 14 of the month. After I went in and manually updated stats - i get You have used 2.35% (11.73GB) of your 500.00GB cycle allowance; the next cycle starts on day 14 of the month. ( The correct stats).
Might have been some cron jobs missing i think. I think they are there now though- thanks

Hmmm ... OK.
Sure, you CAN decipher the info under the overlapped items but I find it unclear and visually confusing.
Looks like a "mistake" to my eyes, but maybe I'm weird ...
:p

So do I gather there is no possibility (because of JY limitations) to make the 4 columns much, much thinner and have no overlap and still leave space between the days to delineate them?

what's weird is that they display fine here:

the fact they're overlapping suggests that something is probably off in my timezone/date code - which TZ is your router set to? i'll see if i can reproduce

Appreciate you looking at it @Jack Yaz.
Yes, your screen shot is exactly how I was thinking it should be!
I may not be the only one so afflicted then …

My TZ is set to “GMT+10:00 Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney”
If it makes a difference, we are NOT currently in DST here in Sydney, that starts October 3.

i'll try and take a look, but no promises on an ETA I'm afraid

I thought you were on a break anyway - so if/when it takes your fancy (or never as the mood dictates) is fine by me as always! Main thing was your confirmation something may be not right …
