|When a suffix is not specified, it's assumed that the value given is a bytes representation.||Specifying a value of 32000, means 32000 bytes|
|k, K, KB, kb||Kilobyte: a unit of memory equal to 1,000 bytes.||32k means 32000 bytes.|
|m, M, MB, mb||Megabyte: a unit of memory equal to 1,000,000 bytes||1M means 1000000 bytes|
