If I run the following command:

# /usr/local/bin/rsync -a --stats -v --delete --force --recursive /source 
building file list ... done

Number of files: 74
Number of files transferred: 5
Total file size: 1104726340 bytes
Total transferred file size: 115163136 bytes
Literal data: 463500 bytes
Matched data: 114699636 bytes
File list size: 1570
Total bytes written: 658318
Total bytes read: 289890

wrote 658318 bytes  read 289890 bytes  12900.79 bytes/sec
total size is 1104726340  speedup is 1165.07

What is the total transferred file size?

Is the "Total bytes written" the amount of data (not counting overhead of 
course) sent over the network (had this been a network transfer of data)?

Many thanks in advance for your help...
