          •  15 Dec 2010 12:06

            Release Notes: Time events in ipa.conf for +h, +D, and +W could be incorrectly scheduled (plus one extra hour for +h and plus one extra day for +D and +W); this was corrected. If threshold's tm_from time and tm_updated time are equal and their month day is the last day in a month, then ipa incorrectly calculated previous threshold_time_width value during threshold's initialization.

            Special designed modules decide what is statistics, how to get statistics and how to save statistics. IPA connects modules with each other, one can consider it as an accounting machine with rules. So, I do not have exact answer, because everything depends on modules. Please ask me in a private email if you need more information.

            Financial or Firewall
            I can't really tell, but is this for accounting for financial information, or for accounting network traffic and firewall information. The documentation and website are not clear.
