Question:

How does NFA convert bytes to MegaBytes or GigaBytes? 

Answer:

Prior to NFA 9.3.1 (including the older CA releases of RA 8.x and 9.0.161) everything was divided by 1000, including volumes.
But since the release of NFA 9.3.1 (and as of 9.3.2) we report volumes using 1024 and rates using 1000. 

Additional Information:

Our release notes for NFA 9.3.1 reference this, here;

Defect - DE42308 Make Volume display "divide by 1024"
Volume calculations are now scaled based on power of 2 when converting from bytes to MB, GB, etc.
