Performance Advisor volume:throughput counter


this might be an easy one, what unit does the volume:throughput counter in PA measure? The administration guide doesn't give detail on this counter and the operations manager guide says that counter is kb but that doesn't seem right... when i generate graphs from pa on this counter it outputs as volume throughput b_per_sec, is that bits per sec? on the output chart i see one of the peaks at 74150501.55 b_per_sec... just want to make sure i convert the data right... figured one of you might know.

thank you

Volume Throughput displays the read_data and write_data counters.Total data sent or received by the volume, in bytes persecond.

throughput = volume:<instance>:read_data + volume:<instance>:write_data
