Fedora :: Slow Network Transfer Speed In Fedora 13
Aug 11, 2010
I am running Fedora-13 64 bit on my Dell Laptop, The same Laptop has Windows-7 as well (dual boot system). I have chosen ext3 filesystem while installing fedora. The file transfer speed in Fedora-13 over the network to my network drive comes out to be not more than 5MBPS.Where as in Wndows-7 I am getting the speed of around 10~12 MBPS. Also I found that copying files in USB flash drive is very slow than in Windows-7 . What could be the problem? To add it , I have another Laptop Running Ubuntu-10.04 , which also performs network transfers at 10~12 MBPS. So its just the fedora-13 who has this problem. As far as I remember this was not the case with Fedora-12
I have a 500gB USB drive connected to my laptop for backups and filestorage. But I can't get it to play nice with Midnight Commander. My transfer speeds max ut at 2MB/s wich is painfully slow when moving large files such as movies. Worker FM transfers the same files to the same drive much MUCH faster (not sure by how much, though). This leads me to the conclusion that the problem lies with MC.
We have a server and we have instales an Open suse 10.3 on it. We created a Samba server also. Made to share folder, that we acces from network from other computers that have xp.
The problem is if we try to copy from server it is very slow only 100-300kb/s. The strange thing is that if i copy 1 file then its slow but if i start to copy another one the speed gos up to 10-15mb/s. Evry time i want to copy somethin or install from that server i need to start another copy. If i copy from a comp to that server the speed is normal only if i copy from server its slow.
I'm experiencing slow speed transfer between two wireless connected laptops running ubuntu 9.10. Using SSH to tranfer files between these two laptops, which connect to the internet via a wirelesss router, with good speed. This is why I'm surprised by this low speed : 52.3 KB/s, averaging 3 hours and 31 minutes for a 700 Mb movie. Is there any way to make this faster ?
My Sempron LE-1100 home server (1GB RAM) has run CentOS 5 32-bit happily for years, but I decided to replace its two Seagate 250GB drives (RAID1) with two WD 500GB black drives (RAID1). I decided to do a fresh install and used CentOS 5.5 64-bit this time. Since switching to the 64-bit OS with the new drives, my transfer speed across the LAN has dropped from a reliable 45MB/s to only 18MB/s from other machines to the server, and to 27MB/s from the server to other machines on the LAN. I use gFTP or WinSCP for these transfers (in FTP mode). Prior to installing the new WD drives, I ran the long WD tests on them and they passed, so I don't believe the drives are faulty. I suspect it's more to do with me switching CentOS from i386 to x86_64.
I've got two questions: 1. Is the 64-bit version of CentOS appropriate for a Sempron LE-1100 with 1GB ram, or should I switch back to the i386 version? 2. Is there a reason why switching to the 64-bit OS would negatively impact on transfer speeds? I doubt the new HDDs are faulty...I was expecting them to be faster. 3. Is there anything I can try to improve transfer speeds across the LAN? According to PHPSysInfo, the network card is "Ethernet controller: nVidia Corporation MCP67 Ethernet".
I'm having a strange problem with data transfers between systems. I have a file server + my desktop. Both are running Debian 8.3. I have a samba share running on the file server and I mount the shares on my desktop on boot via /etc/fstab
When I copy a file using the nautilus from my home folder (on my HDD) on my desktop to the mounted network location, my transfers start out at gigabit speeds 80MB/s-90MB/s for a couple seconds and then drop down to about 8MB/s
But when I terminate the transfer and then use scp to transfer the same file, I get consistent gigabit speed throughout the transfer. I am not sure what is going on.
So what kind of speed are you getting with Samba over your local network? What speeds should I be seeing? I'm currently transferring a large amount of files from one computer to another. I'm taking everything off of a desktop drive on computer A and putting it on an IDE disk on computer B. Transfers are running at around 600-700 KB/Sec. I've seen moments, mostly when the transfer starts, where speeds were at 1000KB/Sec, but that lasts a very short while and then starts to "degrade" until it reaches 600+ KB/Sec. It then seems to level off there. Is this acceptable? Is this all I can expect to get out of a 10/100 home network? The current transfer is 2.5GB. Looks like it will take 1 hour+ to complete. Transferred 12GB last night. Was looking at 4-5 hours to complete so I left it running while I was sleeping. Personally, I think this is slow. I think it could be exponentially faster.
While I'm running these transfers I'm looking at some documentation on Samba speed tweaks. I've been adding little tidbits here and there to both smb.conf files. Some of it seems to help. Sometimes there is a noticeable difference in speed. Sometimes the changes actually cause degradation in speed. If you have a speed tweak that you would like to share the information will be gratefully accepted. Samba gurus welcome to reply. How do you set up Samba in an office environment? How do you set Samba up in an environment where performance is critical?
Maybe I should forget about Samba and try using a different transfer protocol? Am I expecting too much from Samba?I should stop before I really start to ramble. Anyhow, networking beats the heck out of the sneakernet, at any speed!As a side note, or maybe quite importantly, there is a router and a network switch (not a hub) involved here. Maybe something to consider?
I have the following nasty issue:I am using fedora 12 and I use vpn for working remote.When I browse the internet the speed is very slow!even when I do a yum update it downloads the packages with max 100kb. if I drop the vpn connection I download the packages with 1Mbdo you know what the problem could be? i created the vpn connection using the network manager...it is a regular pptp connection for the vpn!
I just noticed that files are transferring between my two computers at no more than 11.3Mb/s no matter what I do.
I regularly use sshfs to mount a drive on my main computer. But after noticing a dismal speed of 10Mb/s when copying a file, I thought maybe sshfs is slow. So I tried scp, and I'm getting 11.3Mb/s with scp. Using the blowfish cypher gave me no change to this, still exactly 11.3Mb/s.
I have a Gigabit network except for the cable, which is a 10meter, 100Mb/s cable. I have a custom modified sysctl.conf file which I'll post here if needed.
Is there anything I can do about this pathetic speed ? Maybe a modification to my ssh config ? sysctl ? anything ?
I was wondering how to calculate some problems related to network transfer speed. If someone can show me a function to calculate network transfer speed over time, I would appreciate it.I'm in the midst of transferring 1.3TB of data to a network storage system. By looking at the stats, 4.6GB file transferred out in 6 min and 30 seconds. How long would it take to transfer 1.3TB of data?
I have connected two computers with each other both having fc installed. Now, when I tried to transfer a file from one computer to another using scp command, sometimes the file transfers very slowly and sometimes very fast. I wana know that why it sometimes transfers slowly. By slow I mean much slower than a file downloaded from a dsl.
Does anyone know if the Yum fastestmirror plugin only makes decisions based on latency to pick the best host or does it measure bandwidth? On my laptop for the last few weeks I've been getting super slow yum updates (3.5kB/sec), when I force it to use the baseurl it runs as fast as I'd expect (160+KB/sec).
So the fastestmirror plugin doesn't seem to work unless maybe it's measuring latency as fast but the actual download speed is slow. If so, fastestmirror plugin should really take both into account.
I have the problems with transfer speed between samba and Windows XP clients.
Samba server configuration: Quad Core 6600 CPU. 4 Gb RAM OpenSUSE 11.2 with kernel "126.96.36.199-0.1-desktop" Samba - samba-3.5.1-1.1.i586 Test: 4 GB File copying. One file.
Transfer speed from Samba Server to Windows 7 and XP clients: (Windows clients copy file from Server share -> to local drive) From Server to Windows 7 client 1: 85-90 Mb/sec From Server to Windows 7 client 2: 90-100 Mb/sec From Server to XP1 client 3 75-100 Mb/sec
Transfer speed from Windows 7 and XP clients TO Samba Server: (client copy file from local drive -> to server Share) From Server to Windows 7 client 1: 12-20 Mb/sec From Server to Windows 7 client 2: 30-35 Mb/sec From Server to Windows XP client 1 20-27 Mb/sec
(Copying file from Windows local drive to Windows remote share) From Window 7 client 1 TO Windows XP client 1 40-50 Mb/sec From Window 7 client 2 TO Windows XP client 1 50-60 Mb/sec
Copying file from Windows 7 client 2 share -> TO Windows XP client 1 show me 100-120 Mb/sec speed permanent. Copying file from Linux hosts to NFS server is stable 50-90 Mb/sec bidirectional.
This part of my smb.conf file Code: # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global] log level = 1 debug level = 0 max log size = 50 .....
I have very slow write speed when copying file from Windows clients to Samba Share. Samba speed is slower than Windows native clients connections ?
this is all on LAN.Whenever I transfer files through the router A to a pc connected wirelessly, the internet hit the speed of molasses. What can I do to rememdy this? I was thinking about having my fedora box connect wirelessly to the internet, through router A, and then bridge via ethernet to router B and then have my pc always connected to router B, so when i transfer files, router A remains unaffected. Is this correct logic?
I am having a problem trying to transfer large file (~700MB) from one station in my home to another. I have 3 PCs hooked up through a router. 1 is wired to the router and the other two are wireless. One wireless is a laptop that has a built-in Atheros wireless card that was supported during the FC13 install. The other wireless has a plug-in wireless card made by Belkin (F7D1101). I had to use ndiswrapper to get it to work on FC13.(BTW all PCs are running FC13)
The one with the Belkin card is, I think, the problem. The one with the Atheros card will transfer files at a rate of about 8MB/sec to the one with the wired ethernet connection. The one with the Belkin card will not transfer at rates over 300KB/sec to either of the other two PCs. I have tried file transfers both encrypted and not and it makes no difference.
I am currently using fedora 12. My question is why is the speed for my yum and rpm are very slow. Something like Flash Player 10 couldn't even load after being installed. If I downloaded the rpm, the speed is like normal but if I yum it. The ESA took like >1,000,000 sec..or whatever..The point is it does seem like something has happened to my yum/rpm function. I can download and surf the web as usual. I just can't get any add-on such as the Flash Player 10. I can only use the basic already provided by Fedora.
I tried: su - yum clean all rpm --rebuilddb yum update but I am still unsure what type of RPM issue I am facing.
I am experiencing very slow speed with the Intel 5300AGN on a Dell Studio XPS notebook and the iwlagn driver. I'm using Fedora 12 with all the latest updates available. When connecting to a G network with WPA2 security, everything goes fine at "normal" speed. When connecting to a N network with WPA2 security, the download speed falls between 0 k/s and 20 k/s max. The connection speed (as stated by Network Manager and iwconfig) is between 0 kb/s (?) and 11 Mb/s during the same session. I'm can't connect through ssh or download with scp (stalled). Web pages take a lot of time to render.
When connecting to the same N network on Window 7, everything runs fine enough. Every N network I try is the same story. Works fine on windows, badly on F12..
I am having a very weird problem, of which I have never heard before. The problem, shortly (I will give details in the following), is that the copy speed between the partition in which I am running my Fedora and another partition where I store backup data is 50K/s, which is extremely slow (it has been usually around 10M/s, almost 200 times faster).
My laptop is a HP Pavillion Dv7 2080 ep, in which I have two disks of 250G. One of the disks is partitioned between two operational systems, Fedora 14 64 and Windows 7 64, and the other disk contains the above referred partition where I store my backups (lets call it backup disk). The problem happens ONLY when I try to copy anything from my home in Fedora to the backup disk. I first thought it could be a problem in the backup disk. Then I login into the windows and made a copy of some AVI files (3G approx) to the backup disk, which went normally, within a few seconds, thus eliminating this possibility. I try therefore to make the inverse process, a copy from the backup disk into my home folder in Fedora. It went normally, copying 4 G also within few seconds, actually with an excellent speed of 50M/s. After searching in google, I saw some people also complaining of slow copy speed (although they had 7M/s, more than 100 times faster than what I have now), and one cause could be that the source file system (in my case the Fedora home folder) would be near its full capacity. I therefore eliminate everything that I could, around 15G, and now I have like 20G of free disk space, which I think is more than enough for everything. However, the problem persists. Some people also said that it could be the type of files and/or amount of data. I therefore tried several kinds of files (from raw data files to AVI and RMVB regular video files), and several amounts of data (from single files with a few Megas to folders with 20G) and in all cases I had the same unacceptably low copy speed of 50K/s.
It seems to be a problem in the software, caused by the updates, since until 10 days ago it was everything ok. However, I usually make the updates whenever they appear but make my backups much less frequently. Therefore I don't know for sure what has changed in Fedora through the updates since the last backup I made, when everything was working fine.
I am having problems with website load speeds. I have fendora 15 and windows loaded on my machine. When I am in windows the internet connection is fine but when I am in fedora everything is slow. I am connecting wirelessly to a netgear router using a D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop Adapter
I have not installed anything for the wireless card.
I have tested my speeds from here [url] and I know that I am getting around 7000kb down.
I have gone into firefox to about:config and set network.dns.disableIPv6 to true... but everything is slow.
Does any one have a way to speed up the internet on Fedora 12? I have a dual boot system with Vista x64 on the flip-side, and my wireless connection there is just fine. But when I get on this side, it goes back to the dial-up days (yes I said the DU word). yum updates seem to be just fine, and e-mail seems to be fine. just firefox is slow. And now that I put the x64 Flash in (thanks to leigh123linux), with that working too it seems even a little slower again.
I had a F14 samba server working flawlessly now for a quite time. Unexpectedly about a month ago the write speed slowed down around 64kbit/s and that's really slow. I haven't changed any configs, only updated the server. I've troubleshooted this from many angles: -It is not a network issue because sftp writes are good. -It is not a RAID1 issue because write speed from another directory (locally) are good. So basically samba is the only thing left.
Here's example from smb.conf: [MyShare] comment = My share path = /mnt/RAID_share writeable = yes browseable = yes writelist = +smbuser

I am newbie to linux, I am dealing with Fedora core 13. I have already succeedded in building an ad hoc network and a WLAN network. My next step is to get some networking statistics such delay, throughput, etc. So, I need traffic to flow through the network for both multimedia traffic and bulk data traffic. How to send files between nodes on the network (I found commands ftp, rcp but do not know whether they are the correct choice for this). ID their any application to perform this?
Also, I want to perform some video streaming between two nodes to study the behavior of real time data transfer. Is thier any application to perform this?
Ok, the only thing I remember doing is changing out my hard drive because it went bad. I swapped in a new one and reformatted with Windows 7. (I can hear the boos and hisses as I type) Anyway, now file transfers are exceedingly slow. They are ~10KB/s when they should be ~40MB/s. The odd thing is that it mostly occurs on large files, but not all large files and sometimes smaller files are affected. Copying files from one hard disc to another on the server, as well as copying from the server to Win7. Local files are not affected. The problem does not occur on my laptop which has Slackware Linux on it.
Another thing about the problem is that when I mount a disc image on a virtual drive, access time is very slow and windows explorer is very unresponsive and often locks up completely.
I have a samba server with Slackware Linux on it and a Windows 7 client. DHCP is configured through dnsmasq. (dhpc-host=<mac address>,<computer name>) Every now and again, dnsmasq seems to conk out when I try to access the network with my Win7 machine. I then have to reboot the server, as my only access to it is via SSH and I don't have a video card in it. After the server reboots everything is fine until accessing the network with my Win7 machine conks it out again.
I've tried different MTU settings, different network cards on the Win7 machine(Dlink and realtek), various regedit hacks, but none of them produce any results.
I have a Dell inspiron 640m (1405). I am a reasonably clued in linux user, but I am getting serious networking speed problems. The networking card is an intel 3945ABG When wirelessly connecting with windows XP, everything runs fine and the network connection is fast.
When connecting with any linux distro, the networking speed is abysmally slow, and the connection drops randomly. (the network is recognised and the connection is made however)
I have just formated and did a fresh install to start all over. I installed Ubuntu 9.1 and everything went fine but the network. The computer serve as a NAS and MediaPlayer. When getting a file from the server, I get a speed of 40-60mb/sec, which are good for a Gigabit network. When I try to put a file in, the speed can't pass more than 1mb/sec and often stop.
In mi fstab file I mount a smb file server at boot. The code is: //<ip address>/data /home/eng-2/NAS smbfs credentials=/home/eng-2/.smbcredentials,dir_mode=0775,gid=1000,uid=1000 0 0 Transfer rate to the server is approx 100 KB/s Whilst transfer rate from the server 16 MB/s If I mount it from Places>connect to server. Both to and from speeds are 16 MB/s. Why is it so slow when mounted through fstab?
I've fixed almost everything except this problem. My network card worked fine on Windows but since I switched from Windows, file transfer over the network using my network card is horribly slow, 30kbps max on 100mbps wired connection. I know my network card is working fine, and I'm trying to copy files between my Ubuntu PC and windows PC, I've set up Samba as recommended by these forums, I can transfer files when using wireless connection, but I still can't transfer files at a speed faster than 30kbps on a wired connection.And the funny part is, it's fast when copying files from Ubuntu to Windows but it's slow the other way. And I've tried this with more than 4 different Windows computers.lspci returns this for the network controllerCode:Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 191 Gigabit Ethernet AdapterIs there any way of updating drivers or something that I can do to fix this problem
