What is the Usage (Hours) in OpenStack's web interface Horizon CSV Summary and why most of my instances have the same value (17.02)?

In OpenStack's web interface Horizon, under Project Overview we can download a CSV Summary.

enter image description here

I am surprised to see that in the CSV summary I downloaded, the Usage (Hours) column is almost always 17.02. What is Usage (Hours) supposed to quantify, and what can explain that most of my instances have the same value (17.02)?

The official documentation doesn't seem to give any explanation

I just ran into the same issue. It seems the issue is that by default this view is for "Today" where as teh defdault date range shown is for "This Month".

To actually show the monthly usage click the submit button next the date range to update the data, tehn download the CSV.

I think this is related to this bug (possibly)

Thanks! Also the column Uptime(Seconds) in the summary CSV is not affected by the selected date range, I don't know whether this is on intended or a bug; the bug report seems to address some similar/same issue over the stats.
