How to view leak stats?

Are these numbers in the normal range? Cant seem to find any data on what the numbers should be. My AHI has been ranging from .3 to .7 max which seems really good and i do always get the Grin
S9 subtract intentional leak (mask vents) from total leak and report unintentional leak (mask and mouth leaks)
Leak shown on the screen is 95% percentile, mean been at or below that number for 95% of the time over the course of the night
Resmed define acceptable leak 24 L/min ... the red line shown in ResScan leak graph
10 to 12 L/min ... excellent numbers. Most important the mask feel comfortable
