PER Stats Scroll Bar
- Captured data begins to appear on the left and fills the width of the bar, left to right.
- The vertical bars in the Scroll Bar each indicate a fixed duration. When data first appears in the Scroll Bar as it is being captured, each bar equals one second. When the data fills the bar, reaching the right side limit, the last bar moves back to the center of the Scroll Bar. The bars stay the same size, but doubles in duration (for example, the first time the Scroll Bar fills, the bars return to the middle, but now each bar represent two seconds of time instead of one). Each time the bars cycle to the middle, the time they represent doubles. When the bars move and the Viewport (see below) is not maximized, the Viewport moves with the bars so that the same packet range is indicated. When the Viewport is maximized it stays maximized regardless of what the bars do. This ensures that the display can be made to reflect all packets at all times by maximizing the .
