Hello all. I am working with rsync and various files. I am trying to figure out what the "speedup is 42.99" means after rsync is done executing. I am not sure what this number means. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. This is part of what I am seeing:

wrote 2041965 bytes read 545099567 bytes 1222662.64 bytes/sec
total size is 23520133148 speedup is 42.99

Thanks. :)

The speedup is the total bytes of the synced directories over the total bytes transfered.

23520133148 / (2041965 + 545099567) = 42.987

Basically, you would have needed about 43 times as long if you used FTP or scp instead of rsync.
