rsync stats: am I reading this right?

Hey Guys,

I am trying to calculate the amount of data that I send to my backup server via rsync so I don't go over the 5 megabit bandwidth cap. My stat's for today's backup are the following:

Number of files: 269625
Number of files transferred: 11128
Total file size: 29030581960 bytes
Total transferred file size: 2069384258 bytes
Literal data: 1885425764 bytes
Matched data: 183958494 bytes
File list size: 9147213
File list generation time: 0.001 seconds
File list transfer time: 0.000 seconds
Total bytes sent: 1895474976
Total bytes received: 590388

sent 1895474976 bytes received 590388 bytes 9551966.57 bytes/sec
total size is 29030581960 speedup is 15.31

According to this, I sent approx 1.76 gigs of stuff at around 9 megabytes per second, right? Am I reading this properly?

1.77 Looks right to me too.

Do you use compression options with rsync? Do you have any sparse files? (there is an option to handle these efficiently with rsync)
