Debian :: Fast Bandwidth And CPU But SLOW X11 Forwarding

Sep 26, 2010

I have a fast server running Debian 5 (I tried to upgrade and everything broke.

So I'll stay with Lenny):
Core 2 Duo

When I use the -X command and try and run applications to my desktop, it is VERY slow. Firefox takes 20 seconds+ just for a right-click menu to appear. It is completely unusable because of this speed. And this is after a clean install of Debian 5.

I've tried on multiple clients (Windows and OS X) and it is always slow! Even though both computers and connections are fast. My home connection is 100mbit too....

So the problem is not bandwidth or resources, the problem must be with the server/software? Any ideas why tunneling X11 applications are so slow? Is there an alternative X11 software I could use on the server?

1 thread in FTP to this server gives 10MB/s (100mbit). So X11 should be fast? And btw, I'm tunneling through SSH.

Can figure out why it is so slow?

Ubuntu :: Internet Connection Very Slow On 9.10 But Fast In XP

Mar 23, 2010

Like the title, that is my problem. I'm using cable modem with 3mbps. It is Linksys Docsis, wired networking. When I download a file using ubuntu 9.10, my latency time (ping time) sky rocketed to 2000ms average, while in XP none of this happens; I tried to download the same file from the same website. In ubuntu 9.10 my network setup will be, well... nothing. I'm using DHCP automatic detection. Same thing in XP.

I don't want to go back and forward using XP for the internet. Funny thing though, none of this happens while I first started ubuntu 9.10. I didn't configure anything with networking. It is the way it is from the beginning. The only thing I tried was ubuntuone. But that like months ago, and the problem I have with slow internet connection only appear this March.

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Browsing - Fast Download ?

Feb 12, 2010

I'm using wlan and I'm behind a NAT firewall. Downloading with BitTorrent can reach speeds of 1,5MB/s, but browsing is incredibly slow. Chromium/Firefox seems to hang forever on "connecting.." or "waiting for". Sometimes pressing the reload button will speed it up. I have two Ubuntu boxes and they are the same way.

I don't get it, if downloading is so fast, how can browsing be so slow. Yes I have disabled ipv6 in grub and in Firefox, don't know how to do it in Chromium. Have 64-bit Ubuntu. Cnet wlan card using rt61pci module.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback Slow In 10.04 But Fast In 9.04?

May 14, 2010

I have two Ubuntus installed. A 10.04 and a 9.04. In 9.04 if I watch a video in Firefox, it works very smoothly and nicely. Using the "top" command, totem-plugin-vi is using the most cpu time at about 16%, and xorg is using about 5%. But in 10.04, totem is using 72% and xorg is using 26%, and it looks really choppy. I think watching DVDs is the same way. I checked "Hardware Drivers" in the System->Administration menu (in 10.04) and it said "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system." I'm guessing maybe I'm using different video drivers on each system, but I don't even know how to check. and here is an excerpt from lspci:

OpenSUSE Network :: Slow Internet Browsing / Make It Fast?

Oct 6, 2010

I'm running 11.2 on a Dell Latitude D630. Everything has been great other than issues with Suspend and hibernate not working correctly. However after about a month of use browsing the web has really slowed down bad. It doesn't seem to matter if it's in Firefox or Chrome either. I am using a wireless connection that is getting the signal at 85-95%. Even though I still tried using a direct cat-5 connection to the router and it was still slow as well. I have the fastest broadband connection my cable offers and my windows boxes on the same network are still flying.

Ubuntu :: Samba Slow Writes To Server But Fast Reads

Jul 1, 2010

I have a fileserver running 10.04 server 64bit and samba. I connect it to my desktop which is 10.04 desktop 64bit.I have the server mounted on my desktop in fstab as:// /media/share cifs guest, uid= 1000.Up until 30 June 2010 it was all fine. Now when I write the server it is very slow e.g. 2Mbps though when I read I get >100Mbps so I think my network is still ok. If i use nautilus smb:// I can write at >100Mbps and also read at >100Mbps...So any ideas why the write speed via the fstab mount samba has started to go really slowly in the last couple of days?

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Wifi - But Fast Connection On Network Cable

Jan 22, 2011

I have a strange problem that I cannot diagnose -- slow wifi. About two or three weeks ago, I noticed that my wifi began to slow down dramatically. The problem is the same on my ubuntu laptop and my ipad. But when I connect directly to the router with a network cable, my connection is fine. So it is definitely a problem with the wifi signal itself.

What I have done so far:
(1) I checked all of the MAC addresses connected to my wifi. I identified my tivo box, laptop, and ipad. Nothing else.

(2) I used [I]wifi analyzer[I] on my android phone and selected an unused wifi channel (channel 8).

(3) I changed the username/password on my wifi signal. I also changed the password for my router's admin privileges.

(4) I restarted my router and computer.
None of this helped.

I am using a Netgear WGR614 wireless router.

Networking :: Slow Outbound - Fast Outbound Cross Country Connection

Jun 2, 2011

I'm having an issue where a server in CA (1000/full) and in VA (100/full) have very lopsided data transfer.

CA -> VA with iperf shows ~20Mbps
VA -> CA with iperf shows ~93Mbps

If we change the CA server to 100/FULL, transfer speed is 93Mbps both ways.

Some tuning was done to TCP window scaling parameters, but it won't correct the issue, just improve the CA -> VA numbers to what is listed above. I will say, turning TCP window scaling OFF will lower the transfer speed both ways to < 20Mbps.

The only clue I have when looking at wireshark dumps is that the window scale going OUT would never go past 10240 (scale is 8, so 2^8 x 40bytes). In the opposite direction, the window size will go above 3MB (scaled).

It is not a bandwidth problem as iperf with UDP shows 93Mbps both ways. Local transfers (CA 1000/full to CA 100/full) show full speed both ways, so I feel it is strictly related to TCP window scaling.

RedHat 5 64-bit on both sides. Any ideas why it won't scale above 10240?

Fedora Networking :: Finding The Upcoming Bandwidth And Specify The Bandwidth Rateto Classes

Nov 18, 2010

I created a the class like this for shaping the packets with a specified bandwidth rate.....

tc qdisc del dev eth0 root
tc qdisc add dev eth0 root handle 1: htb default 15
tc class add dev eth0 parent 1:0 classid 1:1 htb rate 750kbit ceil 750kbit
tc class add dev eth0 parent 1:1 classid 1:3 htb rate 600kbit ceil 750kbit prio 0

For Our Requirement:-

I dont want to specify the bandwidth rate strictly like this rate750kbit ceil 750kbit,based on whatever speed is coming which should allocate the bandwidth rate for particular class...I need one application for finding the upcoming bandwidth & Is any other method is there for specify the bandwidth rate in a classes.

Debian :: Bandwidth Taken Up By Download?

Dec 10, 2010

I've recently upgraded my broadband from a 1Mbps to a 10Mpbs from the same ISP. As such there is no change of hardware.Tried downloading a Linux iso from my laptop and is getting a very good download speed. However, noticed that when I am downloading the iso, all the bandwidth is taken up by the download. Even my browser is unable to refresh or load a new webpage. Boot into Win7 (same laptop) and the webpage is ABLE to load. Tried the same in my netbook (openSUSE) and the webpage is ABLE to load. Tried the same in my Debian desktop and the same problem returns, while downloading files (iso or video) all the bandwidth is taken by the download. Browser unable to refresh. Computer connected to the same wireless network is also deprived of the bandwidth. So the bandwidth (from the wireless router) is totally taken up by the downloading Debian laptop or desktop.

Debian :: Fast Mouse Scroll Up / Down Changes Active Window

Aug 12, 2015

Fresh install of Debian 8.1, have not changed a single setting anywhere. Was scrolling in the web browser and noticed that if I scrolled up or down fast enough the active window changes. Using kde as the desktop environment. Also this has nothing to do with the browser as it happens with anything I have open. Heck trying to scroll in console and having a document open just flips between the two of them. Only way this does not happen is if I scroll slow enough.

Debian :: Customized Distro Aimed At Booting Very Fast?

May 4, 2010

I ask to linux experts if it is possible to easily create a base debian distro that allows wireless networking and synaptic utility (and the basical tools) aimed at booting very fast, from hard-disk or stick. After installation, it would be possible to install other stuff, not much in fact. It should be able to recognize the hardware and then boot without checking everytime.

Debian Configuration :: Bad Bandwidth Management Behind SSH Tunnel

Mar 2, 2016

We have an Apache Subversion (http) server for hosting our codes, and, for the 3 next month, we are behind a DSL connection (max upload 100 kB/s).

When a remote co-worker try to download a new fresh copy of our projects on his computer directly over http, the transfer goes fine : with a bandwidth monitor (gnome-system-monitor or bwm-ng) we can see that the server is trying to send ~95kB/s and the connection remains usable for others task in parallel (just a bit slower, which is normal).

But : when the remote co-worker is connected through SSH to this server, and uses tunneling to communicate with Apache Subversion, the server is sending more than 200kB/s : the connection is not usable for other tasks during the transfer as with ~102kB/s actually transferred through the DSL Line, it's completely congested and more than fifty percents of the packets are lost.

I think that I understand why : TCP/IP auto-detects the max amount of successfully transmitted bytes per second, and try not send more than this maximum value.

When the Apache server is connected to the local instance of openssh-server through localhost, packets are transmitted successfully between them. Only after, openssh-server try to send it to the client (and should retry if it's not successfull) but during that time, Apache is already giving the next one... giving this saturation effect (Apache is not aware of the saturation, or at least, not enough)

Debian :: How Does Squid Handle Bandwidth Distribution

Jun 17, 2009

Can squid do 'fair bandwidth sharing' ? What i mean is, if there is 1 user online on a 4mg line, that user will be using the entire 4mg line speed, and if there are 2 users online, each user will have 2mg line speed, and so on. I have squid cache set up already, but i just need to know how bandwidth distribution/sharing can be handled Can squid also be used to limit/disconnect users after they have used up their allotted bandwidth? [I have a mikrotik router connected to the adsl (for wireless users)]

Debian :: Network Bandwidth Usage Monitoring Application?

Jun 7, 2010

I just wanted to use a network bandwidth usage monitoring application. Scenario: I am using an EV-DO based USB broadband modem with a limited GB plan. For additional data usage they charge per MB. Currently I use either wvdial (mostly) or pon to start the connection. So if there is any network monitoring application which could log time used and data used for the session, it would be great. Actually debian has too many different network monitoring applications, But I am not sure which one suits well for this purpose.

Debian Configuration :: Iptables Forwarding For Tomcat?

Nov 10, 2010

I've been trying to forward some ports using iptables for some time now, but still haven't figured out how to get it to work..What i'm trying to accomplish is to forward all traffic from port 80 to port 8080, and all traffic from port 443 to port 8443, this because i would like to run tomcat as a non-root user, and the original ports can only be used as root.. I've currently setup my iptables like this:

# Generated by iptables-save v1.4.2 on Wed Nov 10 16:44:45 2010
:PREROUTING ACCEPT [39350:6120333]

Debian :: Forwarding TCP Packets - Redirect Also The Port 443 (HTTPS)

Mar 16, 2011

This is where it starts: I have 2 networks. The first: composed by the router which has access to the internet with the IP 192.168.1 and the server (who is a gateway) with the IP The other network: composed by the gateway with the IP and the clients (on the subnet). To sum up, the gateway has 2 IPs ( and On this gateway, I have squid installed (and listening on port 3128). I also made a redirection to redirect some computers who want to access to the web (port 80) to squid (port 3128) with this command: /sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -m mac --mac-source CLIENT_MAC -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128

At this stage, everything works fine. The clients can access the web by the proxy without "knowing". What I wanted to do, is redirect also the port 443 (HTTPS). Actually, when a client wants to access to, for example, [URL]. He cannot. So I would want to be able to redirect people (without passing by any proxy) directly to google. Like a NAT. But the problem is that I can't. The thing would be to, in the gateway, take all the packets with port 443 in destination and handle them to the router Then, when the router sends the packet back, the gateway takes the packet and handles it to the client. I tried putting ip_forward to 1, but the problem is that all IPs and ALL PORTS are forwarded. And I just want port 443 to be forwarded.

Even simple directroy pages are served in around 5 sec, and this is not a joke! It used to work pretty fast. What I have changed is that i replaced a hub with a switch, and that I linked my personal PC with my server together through a hub. I also installed Gnome desktop on the webserver machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Respawning Too Fast - Error: "Respawning Too Fast - Disabled For 5 Min" Freeze

After 2-3 minutes, black screen with scroll of attempted installation pieces and the error message: "Respawning too fast. Disabled for 5 min." Freeze.

Other posts mention problem with init. But this is happening with the install so not able to address that. No apparent md5chksum for LiveCDs. No mention of this problem in installation help guide. Does anyone know how to deal with this? If you need more info, I will provide. Though it seems this is not an unusual problem when booting an installed system, there's no mention of it happening during installation.
