ISA 2006 Dashboard System Performance Monitoring DOA

During beta testing of the 2006 ISA Firewall I noticed that a few of the versions came with a broken packet counting feature on the ISA Firewall monitoring Dashboard. I figured it was just a beta bug and that it would be fixed in the RTM version of the 2006 ISA Firewall. In fact, I was right about this, because there was a final version of the ISA Firewall, released during the beta phase of the product, where the packet performance graphs worked correctly.

So what’s the beef? The final beta version of the ISA Firewall apparently wasn’t the one used in the RTM product, because in the RTM ISA 2006 Standard Edition release, the packet graphs in the System Performance area of the Dashboard no workie, as you can see in the figure below.

I’m posting this not to just complain, but to find out if anyone else has noticed the same thing, and if so, has anyone found a “secret fix” to get the graphs working again. I’m sure it will be fixed by ISA 2006 SP1, but if there’s a way to get them working again before that, it would be great!
