    My FW sends a daily mail about traffic. I occasionally look at this to scan the obvious.
    My Model S's dhcp address is tied to its hardware address (x.x.13.25) in private LAN space.

    This is the recent traffic that was reported.
    • 8/10/18 sent 103Mb -> driving footage for AP (?)
    • 8/11/18 sent 120Mb -> ditto
    • 8/12/18 send 194Mb -> ditto
    • 9/01/18 recv 496Mb -> software updated on same day
    • 9/04/18 sent 28Mb -> driving footage ?
    • 9/05/18 sent 80Mb -> ditto
    • 9/07/18 sent 174Mb -> ditto
    • 9/08/18 sent 120Mb -> ditto
    • 9/12/18 sent 167Mb -> ditto
    • 9/15/18 recv 5.83Gb0 -> V9 ?
    • 9/16/18 recv 367Mb -> software update ? (not yet known)

    The 5.83Gb received by the car on 9/15 are strangely related by size to this entry from the FW report:

    2 ssh (Port:22) TCP Egress 5.480 (GBytes)

    Basically, my FW says: 5.83Gb was recv by your car and the 2nd most trafficked port on that day was SSH port 22.

    The question is why use SSH out of the car? Is it a v9 download via CDN (that is ssh protected)
    rather then normal VPN to the mothership ?

    Could it be a new user manual or some other type of documentation maybe?

    Unless something recently changed, software updates come over CDNs, AWS I think, port 443. I believe maps come over 22, rsync over ssh afaik.

    Yes that's Maps. Tesla recently started pushing a new North America maps version. (For navigation).

    Firmwares are always 1GB or less because the partition they reside on is only 1GB in size (for mcu1). Mcu2 has 32GB.

    Oh, and the other days are all video snapshots your car is uploading to Tesla as they work on EAP /FSD. That's typical traffic.

    I was looking at our router status and noticed that our MS has downloaded 4.2GB over the past 24 hours and is starting to download even more data. This is much more data that I have seen in a long time. 2018.26.0, 2018.28.5 and our current v2018.32.4 were not close to this much data. Could we have been selected as one of the Beta Testers for v9?
    Has anyone else noticed a large download lately? This is on our 2017 MS 60 AP 2.0. Our M3 has not downloaded anything in the past 24 hours.

    Even for V9, the entire partition image should only be about 1 GB.

    That's what I normally see with firmware update and was surprised with the now 4.48GB total downloaded over SSH. Maybe it is new map data that is downloading.
    In the past 1.5 years, I have been through enough updates that I'm no longer in any hurry. While I still like Christmas presents from Uncle Elon, I'm ok with other being on the bleeding edge and testing new code. AP has been working well enough that I use it for 70% of our 80 mile round trip commute (highway and back roads). For trips we use it +85% of the time.

    Didn`t Elon say "next month"?? Kind of unusual for him to be "early"

    My Model S 75D 2.0 downloaded 5.42Gb and uploaded 254 Mb in a single session. Nothing changed on the maps that I can see and no new software installed. I am on 32.2 right now.
