XCP-ng Center 8.0.1: Switch from MBps to MBit/s for Networks Graphs
borzel XCP-ng Center Team 🏚️
I was always confused by the weird numbers XenCenter / XCP-ng Center showed me in the graph section. Is it bytes or bits?
So here is my idea to change the layout to this for the next release, XCP-ng Center 8.0.1:
Please give your opinion and hints here: https://github.com/xcp-ng/xenadmin/issues/92
Well, usually you differenciate (at least I'm used to) by: Mbit/s and MByte/s
Using capital B for Bytes, and normal one for bits.
But generally I prefer Mbit/s over Mbps (Megabit per second)
Oh yes! Of course yes!
@borzel In my humble opinion, I would say no because then you are deviating from industry standard naming. The reason for standards is so that everyone will know what you are talking about as long as you follow the standard.
Lowercase b always means bit and uppercase B always means Byte. Please do not change this. It is trivial to learn the standard. It is less than trivial when people start making up their own abbreviations for things (though admittedly this one isn't rocket science to figure out).
