# Change Unit

If I want to change the unit type, for example, change the network upload/download rate from KB/s to MB/s or Mbps, how would I do that ? I cant seem to edit the Unit field.

Go into sensor settings (the wheel at bottom of window) - Custom tab.
There you can adjust the Unit name and using Customize values and applying a 0.001 (or 0.0009765625 if using 1024 as KB) Multiply factor to MB/s.

For unit name, just use rename ?
If there a list for multiply factor or formula ?

Yes, rename.
For MB/s you need to divide KB/s by 1000 (or 1024). So using a multiplication factor (proportional to division) 1/1000 = 0.001 or 1/1024 = 0.0009765625. Simple math

So I want to see Mb/s which is the standard of seeing your internet speed nowadays. I should multiply by 0.008192 ? Is that correct?

Yes, it should be correct if I calculate right

Maybe it is better to add some of these major units built-in the software. To already have Mb/s, MB/s, KB/s.

Maximum and minimum figures are not affected by this change although the unit is.

Those sampled before the change aren't, but afterwards should be.

Excuse my ignorance but whats the point of using the "simple math" aka 0.0009765625 because when I used that figure my speeds show 62 MB/s with a 500 MB/s download (nowhere close to being correct).
Maybe im missing something? its been a long time since I went to school. Thanks to @Zodler though his 0.008192 figure shows nearly the exact DL/UL speeds as when running a speedtest.

Maybe someone can clarify why you would want to use the "simple math" and visualize your DL speed as 1/8 of your actual DL speed?
