Need an equation (Time/minutes) related..please help.
Posted on 2013-06-06
I'm working on a project where I'm running some test to determine how long a system will take to run a data migration tool with specific amounts of data from one system to another. I want to compare the transfer times of using a USB storage device and an eSATA storage device.
The recorded times are as:
USB Device - 2GB of Data - 12mins
USB Device - 5GB of Data - 38mins
USB Device - 20GB of Data - 2Hrs
USB Device - 50GB of Data - Not Recorded
eSATA Device - 2GB of Data - 3mins
eSATA Device - 5GB of Data - 7mins
eSATA Device - 20GB of Data - 21mins
eSATA Device - 50GB of Data - 53mins
What I would like to do is get a formula (using the data captured above) that I can use that I'll be able to "mathematically" calculate how long it will take to migrate X amount of data. YES I can assume how long it will take but I'll need some kind of formula. Please help if possible
