How are 'Bytes' counted in ACC and traffic logs?

L2 Linker

Hi All,

One of our customers has blocked the 'Music' category in URL Filtering but when we filter the 'Music' Category in ACC, it shows total bytes for the last 7 days as 5 GB.


So what do bytes really represent? Why does it show 5 GB when the category is blocked? 

Please explain this in detail.



It is completely reasonable to consult more attractive and completely free content.
