Include transfer rates monitoring on active filetransfers

Please include file transfer rate monitoring mechanism on active filetransfers. We had an issue with partner where after partner side upgrade the transfer rate became very slow. The filetransfer that took previously minutes, was now hours long. Sadly suggestion in case included below isn't sufficient, because it applies on already completed file transfers and on active filetransfers which can became hours long and it can be too late then. We could see under SEL PRC that Bytes written towards that partner node was 10x lower than usual when refreshing this information manually, so the information looks to be there, but there's no good way to monitor it.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

Monitoring business critical file transfers.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we are in agreement that adding details to more accurately view transfer rates in real time would be helpful. I am accepting this request and we will look to move it onto the roadmap moving forward.
