create 4 counters initialized to zero

save the  the start time to 2 variables (one will be static the other one will be changed every minute)
do {
after each download increment the downloaded1 counter
check if a minute has passed by comparing current time with the start time
if current_ time is >= start time + 1 minute
{
// this is the per minute counter
display downloaded1 counter (this is the per minute)
display download1 counter * 60 (downloads/hour)
//
   totaldownloads = totaldownloads + downloaded1 counter
   set downloaded1 counter to 0
   set starttime = currenttime
} while (filestodownload.count > 0)
