Utilizing Gigabit Connection

Post by PiERiT » May 5th, 2018, 12:12 pm

With Newshosting I am getting around 70MB/s or 560Mb/s. I read that in order to better utilize my gigabit connection, I'd need to use multiple servers, but even after adding another (Tweaknews), it only increased to 85MB/s or 680Mb/s. Both of these are top speeds -- it usually fluctuates beneath those numbers.

Anything more I can do? I followed the items in the below article and it did not help. I have an i5-6600k and am writing to an SSD so hardware should not be a problem either. In the end it doesn't really matter if I download something in 40 seconds instead of 60 seconds but it'd be nice to get the most out of what I have.

Edit: I might just need a crapton of providers to go higher. I added a third and it jumped to 105MB/s or 840Mb/s. Three is too expensive and I'm still not even at a gigabit, so that ends this experiment I suppose.

I think it just might be the limit of Sabnzbd.
Written in Python we can't use all cores of your system very well and downloading from Usenet is very cpu intensive.

I see the same from a single server, I have faster processor also so I can support your result that the limit is providers not software
