slow download

Post by gixxerneosab »

I currently run on version 4.2.2 and sab is downloading at a rate of 60MB/s max even though clicking on wrench and internet bandwidth is showing 162.5 MB/s. Sab is a container installed on docker and config and download folders are on nvme drive.
any help is appreciated.

If that is the output after a few downloads: as there is no "download limited by" cpu/disk, your cpu and disk are not the bottleneck: they can handle everyting that is coming in. So the bottleneck is there ... in your newsservers.

What hardware is your server?
It only lists SSE2 acceleration which is something you only see on ancient cpu's.

OP says "container" and "Common KVM processor SSE2", so something virtualised?

If Proxmox:

"On the VM Wizard change the CPU type to host, you can also do this by selecting the VM Hardware Tab - > Processor and then edit.

You need to stop and start the VM for this to take effect."

Trying with container CPU set to HOST did it!!!! Now seeing 168MB downloads
Thank you so much for the fix!

So pystone is now lower, but you get a better newserver download speed? Weird

EDIT

Your Core(TM) i7-3770 is from 2012, so 12 years old. The lower pystone speed looks more realistic. And the KVM looks high ... so ... fake. Weird.
