Question - In RA/NFA when we convert megabits, do we divide by 1024 or 1000?

 

Answer - Prior to NFA and including the older CA releases of RA 8.x and 9.0.161 everything was divided by 1000, including volumes.
But since the release of NFA 9.3.1 (and as of current release NFA 9.3.2) we report volumes using 1024 and rates using 1000.

Our release notes for NFA 9.3.1 reference this >

 

Defect - DE42308 Make Volume display "divide by 1024"
Volume calculations are now scaled based on power of 2 when converting from bytes to MB, GB, etc.
