Asking about FTP command
Hello, I'm new here and I'm a linux newbie :?
I have to test the upload/download speed of the ftp server, I use ftp command "get" and "put" to test the speed, but the result is 4.3e_02 seconds (2.3e+02 Kbytes/s), how can I change them to a format that human can read (maybe change it to MB/s)?
Thanks so much
2.3e+02 KBps = 230 KBytes per second
IE, about 2 mbps
It is reporting the rate in scientific notation (God knows why). See here and here for more info about ftp and SN.
To convert to MB, first convert from SN to floating point, then divide by 1024 to get MB/sec.
OR, just use wget (or probably anything else, lftp, ncftpget) which uses nicer output to display speed, e.g.:
thanks for the reply and advice :p
Finally know what e+02 means, and I'm going to use wget-wput if I have to test the speed next time
thanks so much
