If 1984 hosts more than one server and the received figure was for those 
6 mirrors also, it would make sense.

If the figures are for a single server and not the mirrors, then it 
wouldn't, as only ~30GB would have been received by that server in 
relation to the ISOs.

That said the mirrors would have to download from the server, and ~180GB 
is greater than the transmitted figure (109.52), which generally leads 
me to believe the transfer quota figures aren't right.

But the issue isn't so much with what's transmitted from the server 
(downloads), the bulk of the problem is in theory lots of data being 
either requested or uploaded to the server ie. received (and then purged).
