Correct the unit used for WAN data transfer in System Graphs
The unit used in System Graphs in the diagnostics menu is confusing and nonstandard
For WAN Data Transfer, the unit used is KBits/s. I cannot find anywhere where this is a standard abbreviation for anything.
I've confirmed with Sophos in case [#9204632] that the actual unit is Kilobits per second (Kbps, kbps, Kb/s, kb/s,), based on testing, even though some Sophos people I have called to have said its KiloBytes per second (KBps or KB/s)
We confirmed this by doing speed tests showing that my client has a symmetric 50/50 Mbps pipe.
Recent spikes recorded show as high as 20000 KBits/sec. if the units being used in the graph are interpreted as KiloBytes per second, then that translates to 160 Megabits per second...which isn't possible on a 50 Megabit per second pipe. If we use Kilobits per second, then its 20 Megabits per second, which is far more reasonable given the known internet pipe in place.
Please use a more correct term for the data transfer rate, again i confirmed with sophos that the numbers reported are actually iny Kilobits per second. Also, use the same unit everywhere in Sophos. In traffic shaping Sophos uses KB/s, kilobytes per second. There is no reason to have different units in different places
We think KBits/s is more clear than using Kbps or Kb/s, which can easily be confused with KB/s.
The use of different units reflects the context for the charts – since most customers would use WAN links purchased in megabits per second, it makes it easier to compare the traffic to the capacity when viewing these chars.
