Add average transfer rate to asyncs API

Give async the ability to calculate the true average transfer rate based on the the summary of the file_size/stop_time-start_time for each file.

Since async is running in persistent mode, the time of the session does not give a good overview of the average rate.

For example, it takes 1 hour to iterate a source directory and we only transfer a 10 byte file. 10 bytes/hour would not be high speed but if we calculate that the 10 bytes took .1 ms - then that is better.

Therefore, make a counter that accumulates the bytes transferred for each file and the stop_time - start_time for that file. Then, an average file transferred rate can be computed by the totals of the stop_time-start_time differences and the total bytes transferred.

Then make this number available in the asyncs/id/summary API output.

    "start_time": 1659459751780,

    "last_updated": 1659460530263,

    "seconds_since_last_activity": 0,

    "run_time": 0,

    "transferred_bytes": 53687091200,

    "deduped_bytes": 0,

    "deleted_bytes": 0,

    above one is the response from asyncs API, we need Transferred Bytes in Gbps and as well as run time for each session (we are not able to see the run time once transfer is completed).
