SABnzbd+ 0.5.3 - Queue never finishes. [solved]

Post by meemorize »

I have been using Sab for quite some time now and all of a sudden some of my downloads (seemingly random) will simply not complete and just sit in my queue on the last few MB of a download.
Basic tech info:
  • Sabnzbd version: 0.5.3
  • OS: Mac Os X 10.6.3
  • News provider: Astraweb

Here is a screenshot of what is happening:

Basically, the downloads will start just fine but then simply stop downloading (note: that the actual download is not paused) and sit in the queue in 'idle' mode not doing any downloading and never finishing. No errors are given either.

Is there anything I can do about this?

Thanks for taking a look.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I was able to 'fix' this problem by lowering my max connections to Astraweb to 10 instead of my previous value of 20 (even though 20 is my allowed maximum by Astraweb).
After lowering this to 10 connections max, things started downloading again and my speed remains the same and has not dropped due to less connections.

Not sure what's going on here.
The best tip is not to use more connections than are needed to get the best speed.
Having more can only decrease performance.
However, SABnzbd should remain working properly.
One thing I can think of is that Astraweb starts behaving odd with more connections.
Another reason could be a bug in SABnzbd.
Hard to prove either case.
