Units for storage and network limits#

Any value representing bytes or bits can make use of a number of useful suffixes to make it easier to understand what a particular limit is.

Both decimal and binary (kibi) units are supported with the latter mostly making sense for storage limits.

The full list of bit suffixes currently supported is:

  • bit (1)

  • kbit (1000)

  • Mbit (1000^2)

  • Gbit (1000^3)

  • Tbit (1000^4)

  • Pbit (1000^5)

  • Ebit (1000^6)

  • Kibit (1024)

  • Mibit (1024^2)

  • Gibit (1024^3)

  • Tibit (1024^4)

  • Pibit (1024^5)

  • Eibit (1024^6)

The full list of byte suffixes currently supported is:

  • B or bytes (1)

  • kB (1000)

  • MB (1000^2)

  • GB (1000^3)

  • TB (1000^4)

  • PB (1000^5)

  • EB (1000^6)

  • KiB (1024)

  • MiB (1024^2)

  • GiB (1024^3)

  • TiB (1024^4)
