"Performance" number should be average, not instantaneous


Recommended Posts

Retrospect reports instantaneous performance (MB/s) during backup. That's fine as

far as it goes, but then Retrospect uses that number to estimate time remaining,

which is absolutely meaningless.


I suggest Retrospect report both instantaneous and TOTAL performance for the

current job. Total performance is (total written so far)/(elapsed time). Then use

THIS performance figure to estimate the time remaining.
