As you see above, when I am spraying a file, I get 2 statuses. Percent done and Progress message.
What does each mean? I see the percent done quickly reaching 100% but the progress is slower.

They should both mean the same thing Srini, one is text based and the other graphical. The disparity of the display may be due to the frequency of the refresh. You might want to open a JIRA issue to solicit comments from the developers.

The Percent Done is for the current task and the Progress is for the entire task.

When replication is enabled, spraying a file has two steps--It first sprays to the primary location, then copies from that node to the mirror(s).

In other words, in a typical multi-node Thor with N+1 replication, when the file spray completes to the primary data location, the Percent Done would be 100% and the Progress is 50% until it copies to the mirror.

Are you sure about that? Because I did sprays with replication on and off.

My Percent Done will be at 100% when my Progress is at 10%. If it were replication, wouldn't it be 100% / 50%.
I just pulled up Legacy ECLwatch and Percent Done and Progress Message match. Switch over to new ECL watch and it's at 100% while Progress still going.

Looks like to me that it's a code bug with a decimal point in the wrong place. ;)

You should submit a JIRA ticket on that.
