How is file transfer rate computed?

Filed under: Software Quality,Software Testing — ramsblog @ 12:42 am

Is there a problem here? or am I reading wrong?


i am uploading some files over to the server and the file transfer progress bar indicates the speed as 24.2KB/second and about 29kb of file size remaining to be uploaded. With a simple observation, it should take a little over a second to upload the remaining data. Then, is there a reason for it to compute as over 4minutes as estimated time of file transfer?



  1. Yes, updating the status is given least priority by machine, It is accurate only for large files

  2. thank you Bachodi. Good to see you after a long time.

    so in this context, it perhaps like law of diminishing values effect, it is harder to get the value out as the file size for the transfer/copy gets smaller 🙂
