The latest alpha release of LBackup supports new configuration options allowing
the time required for various backup related operations to be reported.
One such option is enable human readable reporting on the timing of the
snapshot generation. Quoted below is an example of the output from the latest
> total size is 106717731958 speedup is 831.04
> Time required for snapshot generation : 0 days, 0 hours, 20 minutes, 17 seconds
The current granularity of the timing system mentioned above is 1 second. LBackup is using the the 'date' command to calculate timing.
If you are using the shell to measure the time required and you require increased granularity with simplicity, then I would recommend the use of the 'time' command.
A majority of this post is from the following LBackup discussion thread :
Finally, I believe that 118788 bytes/sec is approximately 1.2 MB/sec
Hope this helps.
