I apologize if this is somehow in the wrong place, as it appears to be some sort of issue with the Eddie client itself, but I was unable to find any relevant inquires/posts with some searching.

I have been using AirVPN for some time now and am loving the service. I recently set up a new Ubuntu machine, however, and while in the past I used OpenVPN to connect via Linux, I decided this time to give the Eddie client a shot. Generally it seems to work great, and I am quite enjoying the network lock feature.

One strange issue I am having, though, is that the client seems to list a false measure of data-throughput in the "Download" and "Upload" sections of its GUI. (Both under overview and stats.) What I mean by this is that according to all of my network monitoring apps, my computer is currently receiving around 300KB/s and sending around 250KB/s, but Eddie lists a download speed that varies between 4 and 8Mbit/s and an upload speed that varies between 2 and 6Mbit/s. I am simply not drawing or outputting this much data, so what is AirVPN actually displaying?

Isn't that simply speed vs volume downloaded? You can change the display of this in Preferences>General>Data Units.
