Using dd command no MB/s shown


I am using the dd command on solaris 10 and the output doesn't include the MB/s statistic that you get in Linux,

is this not available or am I missing a switch of some sort

#dd if=/dev/urandom of=/perf_test/file.txt bs=1048576 count=500
0+500 records in
0+500 records out

The exact debug output of dd, if any, can vary from system to system. Linux uses the GNU utilities, which have many extended features. Solaris does not have this.

An installation of Solaris that includes the Solaris companion utilities has GNU dd installed in /opt/sfw/bin/dd from the SFWcoreu package.
