HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEND A FILE? CAN
I CALCULATE IT?
This calculation considers only data transmission time
in an optimally-configured system. Time for the Client software
to prepare a backup by doing its compression and encryption
is not a part of this calculation, and can be effected greatly
by constraints outside the control of the software. Transmission
speeds can vary widely from this calculation depending on
outside factors like the configuration of the software,
routers, firewalls, anti-virus software, ports, and CPU
speeds. This calculation is for optimal connections. It
is not intended for use as a benchmark or acceptance test
for the software.
This calculation is based on the way OffSite Backup software
transmits and verifies files, NOT on any theoretically "perfect"
file transmission formula. Our software adds overhead for
authentication which is often very difficult to predict,
as it is based on the current health and speed of the network
connection between the Client and the Server, as well as
the type of data and number of files in a backup set, and
the speed of the processors in the Client and the Server.
Your transmission speed will vary. Use this only to estimate.
