That's at best a SWAG (Scientific Wild A** Guess) emphasis on the Wild part.

It's as good as you are going to get but keep in mind it could also be
wildly off too.

As to seeing the line speed that's best done at the switch/firewall. If

If 75% of the file is sent in 24 hours then 24 / .75 = 32 hours total. 32

The only information I have is the size of the file and the I/O count when
I display the open files for the job.

Can I see somewhere how many bytes per minute are being copied?
