Option to choose between Bytes/s and Bits/s in the Traffic Pane [M965]

1. What version of CIS, or Comodo Firewall, are you currently using:
Comodo Internet Security 7.0.312140.4101 RC

2. What actually happened or you saw
Currently the widget’s Traffic Pane only shows bandwidth in Bytes per second.

3. What you wanted to happen or see
This wish is rather simple, I’d like the option to choose between Bytes per second and Bits per second for the Traffic Pane on the Widget.

4. Why you think it is desirable
Most ISPs write their speeds in Bits per second instead of Bytes per second so having the traffic pane show it in Bits per second would be easier to compare it to what your maximum connection is and it’s faster to get an overview without having to do conversions in your head.

For example an ISP might say you have up to 100Mb/s down, if you would get up to that 100Mb/s down the traffic pane would show 12MB/s which is somewhat confusing, well not really it’s easy to make the conversion to Mb/s but it would be easier if it was simply shown in Bits per second from the beginning, but make it an option since some people might like that it says Bytes per second.

An example: Lets say the traffic pane shows 10 MB/s down and 300 KB/s up, with my wish I want to be able to show that as 80 Mb/s down and 2 Mb/s up.

5. Any other information

Voted. :-TU

No need to vote yet. There will soon be a sub-board where this will be moved to for voting. However, it does not exist yet, and after moving it there I will have to Reset the poll.

There is a new system which will be put in place soon. This will all be explained in greater detail soon.

Please let me know which version of CIS you are currently using. I just changed the format slightly as I realized that was missing, and want to make sure each post if complete before forwarding.


Thank you for submitting this Wish Request. I have now reset the poll and moved this to the WAITING AREA.

Please be sure to vote for your own wish, and for any other wishes you also support. It is also worthwhile to vote against wishes you think would be a waste of resources, as implementing those may slow down the wishes you would really like to see added.

Thanks again.

Replaced my vote. :-TU

I would like to thank everyone who has voted on this particular enhancement. As there have been 20 or more votes, and more than 75% of those votes were positive, I have added this to the tracker for consideration by the devs. However, do note that even though this wish will be considered by the devs, it does not necessarily mean that it will be implemented. I will update this topic when I have any additional information.

Thank you.
