I am seeing some issues with the scale.

With some moderate use (eg. 15 Mbps) the scale jumps to 100 Mbps. In at least one case, the logarithmic scale jumped to 1 Gbps, while the linear scale set itself to ~10 Gbps.

The device does not even have a 10 Gbps network device. However I have not figured out how to reproduce the 10 Gbps scale.

I tried iftop -m 10MB and iftop -m 1MB to test limiting the scale, but it seemed not to work, resulting in 1Gbps upper limits in both cases.

Please ignore the comment about the scale limit, as the correct unit notation (which I did not find mentioned in the help or man page) is b, k, m, or g, defaulting to b if no unit is provided.

However when specifying iftop -m 10g the logarithmic scale displays up to 1 Gps but not 10 Gbps, while the linear scale does show 10 Gbps.

fasulia, may I kindly ask you to open a bug report at bugzilla.redhat.com? I'm happy to forward this to upstream then, but as of writing, I'm not really sure whether I understand the issue. Thank you :)
