Pass -vv, and the last few lines of the output give you all the fields
of the table:

total: matches=0  hash_hits=0  false_alarms=0 data=127

sent 982 bytes  received 265 bytes  2494.00 bytes/sec
total size is 133  speedup is 0.11

The "total" line gives the first four fields, and "sent" and "received"
are the last two depending on whether you're pushing or pulling.

The heap statistics aren't part of the tech report.
