Hi Sander, sorry for hijacking this thread.
I have the same issue.
7 days ago my DL speeds suddenly dropped from a constant 22MB/s to a meere 2.4MB/s

Running the wrench test I get 28.4MB/s bandwidth and 43.8MB/s DL folder speed.

This is driving me nuts.

running different types of bandwidth checks I get 256/249Mbps. Im paying for a 250/250Mbps line so thats ok.

Using Torrent it speeds up to max.. but with Sabnzbd I cannot get it to go past 2.4MB/s

Im on Giganews since 2006 and never had any issues before.. not with sabnzbd neither.

Any suggestions?

The usual: ISP throttling, router overloading, newsprovider limited, cpu limited, disk speed. You have already ruled out Internet speed and Download folder speed.

Using another nzb DLer I get full speed.. nothing has changed on the setup.. that’s why it’s so weird. Only sabnzbd that stopped DL at full speed :(

Aha! Well, then a possible cause is that you activated the SABnzbd bandwidth limiter. See http://127.0.0.1:8080/sabnzbd/config/ge ... _max_value and upper right corner: the percentage.
