Application Summary Report Statistics vs Traffic Summary Report Statistics

When I run a report on youtube traffic using the "Application Summary" report I get 300G Bytes of transferred data and 180k sessions.  When I run the same report but using the "Traffic Summary" report I get 20G Bytes of transferred data and only 13k sessions.  What is the reason for this difference.

Re: Application Summary Report Statistics vs Traffic Summary Report Statistics

This could be because your traffic logs are being rolled over and your application statistics are not.  This could also be because you do not have all of your sessions logged.  Application statistics are based off app counters regardless of the logging settings.  Hope this helps.
