How to calculate exactly data transfer rate for storage operation and is transfer rate depends on size of data transfer in Azure storage

Richkm 146 Reputation points

We are getting DurationMs and ServerLatencyMs details from the StorageFileLogs.
From the Microsoft documentation, that I read, the DurationMs shows the total time taken for completing the request,
and the ServerLatencyMs shows the total time taken to complete the operation.

Question 1 for example, If we are performing a 8GB data copy operation on the File Share, then which parameter will confirm the time taken to copy the 8GB data?
Question 2: or these DurationMs and ServerLatencyMs values depends on size of data transfer suppose what if data transfer suppose 1TB instead 8GB.
