Perhaps, but I think iftop should tell me how much data was sent over
the NIC, regardless of what that data might look like uncompressed.
Anyway, I started iftop partway through my transfer, and it reports that
I transferred a total of 244GB. But I know based on the filesize (a
disk image file) that I only transferred 160GB.
I guess I'll report it as a bug.
