Hello after upgrade FirmWare to 4.39WK38 traffic statistics for our DualWan connection WAN2 is empty.
(WAN1 is Active, WAN2 Passive). Before upgrade is statistics running OK.
See Wan2BeforeFW.jpg and Wan2AfterFW.jpg. (I try connect by WAN2 and still empty stats).
Active WAN1 stats showing OK.

    From my test lab with 4.39wk38, after the wan connection failover to Wan2, the traffic statistic of wan2 appears information.

    On your site, the outgoing traffic may flow on Wan1 currently, therefore, you try to unplug cable on Wan1 interface, and see if the information appear traffic statistic of wan2.

    Hello, thanks for answer. I have configuration for trunk :
    So we think if WAN2 is Passive : Balancing Algorithm and Balancing index is not important.
    It is true ?

    And is strange on USGMAil Log (below) I have traffic on WAN2 but statistics  empty ...

    The Algorithm mainly operate on active interface of Wan trunk.
    Also, the graphic you display was generated by Port Statistic which will detect the traffic from everywhere.
    However, the Traffic statistic mainly calculate the forwarding traffic which is Lan to Wan or Wan to Lan.
