How can I validate the Firewalla Blue activity network flow apps summary?

    The quick answer is,  the algorithm predicting user behavior is not accurate.   We are trying to refine it as much as we can.   

    Predicting user behavior at the network level is like listening to people's steps behind a wall, and try to predict if they are running, dancing, or not doing anything, and in the background, there are other people walk around.

    Perhaps I don’t understand network flows well enough. I thought the download and upload events were just summed up and categorized in the apps tab. If this is the case, why is the categorized time under the apps tab so much higher than the actual connected time?
    If this is not the case, what does the apps tab information represent?

    This is because the detecting application activity is very difficult from listening to network traffic.   The app tap is our algorithm trying (very hard) to summarize ... but, it is not accurate, hopefully we will enhance. it gradually
