What's the fastest way to get the total volume of a mesh precisely (sum of volume of each cell)?

I know checkMesh is giving Mesh total volume but i'm not sure if it's really mesh total volume or volume of bounding box ..

Thank you!

What software are you using to generate the mesh? It may provide the appropriate utilities for doing a volume calculation.

checkMesh gives the volume of the mesh not the bounding box
you can easily calculate the volume of the bounding box yourself.. compare with checkMesh volume given
