Computing transfer rate in Analysis
Description of formula for transfer rate being used in Monitoring Center.
Product: Flowmon OS
How is the transfer rate computed in Monitoring Center?
|Steps to Reproduce:|
The presumption is that 1 kB is equivalent to 1024 bytes. It means that the conversion of transferred bytes has to be done by multiplying/dividing by 1024.
The LoadMaster channel transferred 8.24 MB. Conversion to bits is following:
8.24 * 1024 * 1024 * 8 = 69 122 129.92 b
There is a 5-minute time window highlighted in the screenshot so conversion to transfer rate is following:
69 122 129.92 / 300 = 230 407.1 bps
230 407.1 / 1000 = 230.41 kbps
There is a slight difference between the computed result (230.41 kbps) and the screenshot (230.35 kbps). This is because Monitoring Center counts with a raw value of transferred bytes but mentioned example used a value already rounded to MB so the precision was a little bit lower.
