Generally, wget shows transfer times in seconds. Is there a way I can make it show the time in milliseconds?


The total average transfer rate and the total bytes transferred are also part of the output.

2010-02-04 09:18:48 (71.5 MB/s) - `index.html' saved [8105/8105]

8105 bytes / 71500000 bytes/sec ==> 0.0001133566 sec

  • That should probably be 71.5 * 1024 * 1024 and not 71,500,000. – mob Feb 4 '10 at 17:23

You can run time wget ... to get a real time estimate for a transfer from start to finish.

  • This is not suited for short transfers where establishing the connection may take much longer than the actual transfer. – Peter Mortensen Aug 1 '12 at 17:26
