Hi Jorge,

if you select the plot/menu entry, you can change the expression that calculates the values. Currently, it uses "$(speed(net.eth0.down))" or sth like that. Changing it to "$(bitrate(net.eth0.down))" should do what you want. You can see what is possible with the help button.

Cheers

After I upgraded to version 0.5 it worked.

Thank you, Michael!
