This is mentioned in the documentation

sectors, operations, bytes, sps, ops, bps (must be specified, since defaults differ under various OSes). sps, ops, bps stand for: sectors, operations, bytes per second, respectively

Thank you. I read the 1.8 manual, But in 2.0 describe them more. Any way, May i ask to describe them more by operations? –  shgnInc Feb 27 at 6:39
    
@shgnInc I decline. I will leave that as an excercise for you to improve your searching skills. –  Iain Feb 27 at 6:51
