T = terabits = (1000)*giga = (1000)*(1000)*(1000)*kilo.

P = petabits = (1000)*tera = (1000)*(1000)*(1000)*(1000)*kilo.
I'm inclined to think if it's reporting peta-bit transfer rates,
there is some error in the data collection process. I don't think I've
ever worked on a machine that could even achieve petabit transfer rates
to /dev/null. :-)
