Help reading my data


[link to this post]
 
I have set up a graph for my virgin after having problems the other day and stumbling across this site. But im unsure about how to take in the data shown. Please could someone maybe explain in better detail my results so far or just give an opinion on the results for VM 30mb.

The start of the graph I was streaming netflix / using speedtest.net / downloading things to test speeds.


Thanks in advance.

Some examples and a few words at http://www.thinkbroadband.com/faq/sections/bqm.html#313

On yours specifically, fairly normal for Virgin Media.About half the ones I quickly looked at have similar yellow sized area for Virgin Media

Seeing red and the blue getting wider is a sign of bad problems.

So aslong as the blue stays low the yellow doesnt matter too much unless its always high?
