Default Download time estimator..

Hey, well im downloading a few versions of Linux server(s). Im downloading them via torrent, so the whole network, is extremely slow, took me a while just to load this page up.

Anyway, 3/4 of the downloads are doing well, they are in the 60%s now, while one, a very important one, is going ever so slowly. 600MB, at a rate of 4kb/s.

So, is there a website, in which you input the values, and it tells you approx; how long it shall take - does anyone know any?

Ive Googled for the past half hour, but none of my searches seem to result in anything useful.

Anyone care to shed some light?

James

Most torrent clients have an Estimated Time Remaining...

With math:

1,024 Kilobyte (KB) = 1 Megabyte (MB)

You're getting 0.00390625MB/S so

0.00390625x=600

x=600/0.00390625

x=153600 seconds = 2560 minutes = 42.66 hours



So in the end, Time Remaining Formula =

((B) / (A/1024)) / (3600)

Where A is Kb/s and B is total MB remaining

I can tell you passed your exams! Thanks mate.

The program does have an estimator, I have two hours left? Stupid thing, it's wrong for all of them, kinda sucks.

Thanks again!
