One byte has 8 bits In DRBD K = 1024 M = 1024 K G = 1024 M It is very common, but I wrote it in the man pages as often as possible - for avoidance of doubt. KB = 1000 Byte is often used, when KiB = 1024 is meant. That was in your first posting: | sync'ed: 3.8% (305724/317546)M > sync'ed: 67.5% (103428/317546)M Compare it. The first value counts down. I know, that this can be confusing, because in school we wrote 66% = 200000/300000, and the above looks similar. > 214118/58 = 3691,7 / 60 = 62 Mbytes/sec = 492 Mbits/sec > and that sounds nice. > But what does the 30,733 (29,474) K/sec mean then...? That's the speed, which means ~240 Mbits/sec on the line ... Helmut Wollmersdorfer
