How to understand dstat number prefixes and colors?


I'm using dstat 0.6.9 on centos 5.2.

The numbers and colors I'm getting are quite weird. Here's an example.

Code:
----total-cpu-usage---- -dsk/total- -net/total- ---paging-- ---system--
usr sys idl wai hiq siq| read  writ| recv  send|  in   out | int   csw
  3   3  94   0   0   0|9825B   93k|   0     0 | 2.6B  6.5B|  68    89
 10  10  80   0   0   0| 819B  166k|6642B 3423B|   0     0 | 217   246
Let's take 9825B Now what does "B" letter mean here? Is it Bytes? But then why those "B" values are colored red. As I understand, the bigger the value, the more red it is. 93k probably means 95 k/B - its bigger than "B", but its yellow.

So how to interpret dstat's values?

Have a look under /usr/share/doc for the dstat docs
