I got a note from the network services of my company that my internet usage is too high and its a warning. Next time, they will take some actions against me. I know that I do browse sometimes....even for business purpose but the number he told me was too high. They said my computer produced 7477 hits on the day they audited. Now 7477 internet hits means I would be clicking at least every 5 seconds. That is utter rubbish. I can't understand why the number is so high ?
Is it because that when you open a website, it might have 20 different banners and advertisements in it and they will contact different links producing multiple hits?
Also, can it be because I leave my IE window open sometime and go to meetings and that's why it keep getting the latest data?
Please let me know.
