ya i know that it can be done by scrolling down, finding the values and
deleting the one it has created the spikes, but what if the spikes were
not that big and were in the range of around 500 Kbs where the traffic
should be around a a range of 200 kbs, it will be hard finding the spikes.
so it means that i have to scroll down the log file where the timestamp
difference is long and than assume that "this is the one i am looking for"
and delete it right. :S any other suggestions..
