The Daily Sidebar has a grey line with the caption Large Leak followed by a percentage number. I am seeking a precise definition of what this is.
  • Does it mean I was in Large Leak territory for x% of the entire night? Example, if I was on the machine for 8 hours (480 minutes) and was 10%LL, then that would mean that I was in LL for 48 minutes on that particular night.
  • Alternatively, does it mean that when I had a leak, it was a Large Leak x% of the time? To continue the example, if I was in leak status 10% of the night (48 minutes in this example), and in LL 10% of the leak time, then that would mean I was in LL for 4.8 minutes.
 
The difference is large and I want to understand the definition of this particular parameter. 

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Yes, that is what it means. You can confirm this yourself easily. Go to the Events tab and add up all the seconds reported for large leak events. Then divide by the total time you were on the machine.
