I have one Linux server equipped with WiFi . I want to measure data rate speed on this connection . Is there any utility on my Linux that can measure data speed on one specific Ethernet connection when transferring large size files through WiFi connection?
I have two machines running open vpn connected trough a 8 port Gigabit switch (Tp-link TL-SG1008D). The problem is when I try to transfer a file the transfer starts at 13 mb/s and drops to 300kb/s. When I replaced the ram on the two machines and restarted the transfer the speed was 13mb/s constant. How does changing the ram makes such differences (at the first transfer they had 512mb at the second transfer the machines had only 128mb) ? Os Ubuntu Server 10.04.2 LTS
PS :Tried with 256 ram and the problem persists... Machines: two hp d530
what might cause a file transfer to start out fast (11-12 mb/sec) and then drop to about 1 mb/sec after having downloaded about 2 gb? This is what happens when I download files from my old fit-pc 1.0 (a small mini PC with 256 MB/RAM, an AMD Geode processor, and a 100 mbps network card) via ftp over my local network. Is it some buffer filling up?
I was directed to some article about "bufferbloat" earlier [URL], but I did not get any solution from that unfortunately. I have tried increasing the server's TCP buffer using these instructions: [URL] , but it does not make any difference. By the way, I am running Ubuntu Server 10.10 on the fit-pc and Ubuntu 10.10 desktop on the connecting client (which is just a normal Core 2 duo, 4 gb ram computer).
UPDATE: I should add that things were working fine when I was using ubuntu 7.10, but are not now that I have installed 10.10...
UPDATE 2: I just found out this is ONLY a propblem when transferring files to ubuntu. If I use winscp from Windows 7, the transfer speeds are fine...
UPDATE 3: It seemed it was gFTP that was the culprit. Transferring the files using filezilla instead in Ubuntu yields an excellent rate of 11.8 MB/sec. Anyone have an idea what might be wrong with gFTP?
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 have few different usb cards and socets , some of them i have really hotwired.. and i would like to find out where to keep my usb-hdd . few months ago i would use "total commander" it would show .. copying-444Kb/s but these times are over...
i am trying to transfer a file from my live linux machine to remote linux machine it is a mail server and single .tar.gz file include all data. but during transfer it stop working. how can i work and trouble shooot the matter. is there any better way then this to transfer huge 14 gb file over network,vpn,wan transfer. the speed is 1mbps,rest of the file it copy it.
[root@sa1 logs_os_backup]# less remote.log Wed Mar 10 09:12:01 AST 2010 building file list ... done bkup_1.tar.gz deflate on token returned 0 (87164 bytes left) rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at token.c(274) building file list ... done code....
I build a new test machine where i need to bring data from live machine. the data is kind of flat files and some propreitary application axigen mail server.
now what i am suffering from, which commands to do first practise. there is remote site with 1mps speed of wireless between live and test machine. on daily basis aprox 14gb .tar.gz files it need to move it.
i found scp,rcp,rsync,sftp etc. which is fastest way to replicate or copy to remote machines.
the data is on live machine /var/opt/application and on remote same directory too /var/opt/application
i try using scp it take aprox 8-10 hours to copy single 14gb file.
if possible where to see such commands logs results, if anything get down error discontinue while copying.
Having a bit of a issue with Debian Squeeze and transferring files to the Sony PSP..Hook up PSP to USB port and Debian mounts it..I go to drag a 125 meg mp4 to video folder..Copy windows takes about 10 seconds to transfer it..Exit USB mode and there is no video there. Go back into USB mode and look at video folder on the PSP memory stick and there is no video..It vanished. From another after copy progress closed I right clicked PSP and unmounted it..
It error-ed saying device was busy and could not unmount..Looking at light on PSP i see memory stick is still being written to..i wait for light to stop flashing..About a minute or so..Then am able to unmount it..Go to PSP video and theres the video ready to be watched. Debian isnt accurately showing the copy progress...Its showing complete when it isnt..I have to watch the light on PSP to know when it is truly finished.
I'm trying to identify when WAN bandwidth is compromisedI don't want to run this continuously, but would like something that I can put in a script for testing purposes. All the speed tests I've foundhile quite adequate otherwise, utilize a GUI interface.Similarly, is there a linux-based client / server pair that I can use to test out LAN /VLAN issues?
I am trying to install mysql 5.1.44..so i downloaded the binary package, i extracted it and then followed the instructions that were in the manual but i keep getting this error when running this command
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.
slow usb transfer speeds has been resolved in 11.04 (Natty Narwhal)? I am currently using Lucid and facing the problem of slow usb transfer speeds which has always been there in ubuntu but everything else is running just fine for me so I see no reason to upgrade yet unless the new OS has solved this problem.
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 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 connected a 16GB SDHD Class 4 card to my PC with a dongle reader. A class 4 card is supposed to support a minimum of 4 MB/s sustained speed. I grabbed a couple of large, 4.4 GB each, files and copied them to the SD card with Nautilus. The transfer rate started out at 60 MB/s and rapidly dropped to 50 then 40 and slowly dropped to 3.5 MB/s after about 3 GB transferred and it is still dropping.The PC will copy from drive to drive at 65 MB/s so I do not think the issue is reading from the hard drive.I am confused about the transfer speeds which Nautilus is showing. Obviously I am not really transferring to this card at 50+ MB/s. If I was moving data from hard drive to cache I would expect much more speed - I have 8 GB of RAM on the PC. That said, I have stopped the transfer and attempted to unmount the card. I get the message "Failed to eject media; one or more volumes on the media are busy." This has been going on for several minutes so some activity is going on in the background.
I recently setup my two PC's for network file sharing using Samba. I notice the max speed I can transfer a file is 89kb/s instead of 100Mb/s. How can I increase the speed to max 100Mb/s? Both systems are running Ubuntu 9.10 w/Samba.
How do I do a download speed test when comparing Hosting Providers?I'm on a Macbook Pro - wondering if there's an ap for this?Also, I have accounts at each provider with a 100mb file, but I'm guessing I'm closer to one than the other? How would I make it fair?
I am writing a script to do a speed measurement from my ISP's test ftp server. To do this interactively I connect to the server, enter credentials, enable hash and download a test file. The process concludes with something like
################################################################ 226 Transfer complete. 1048576 bytes received in 2.87 secs (356.6 kB/s)
So I entered the credentials for the server in my .netrc file and created a little bash script as follows
#!/bin/bash cd ~/Desktop # poiuytrewq is the limit string of the "here" document
The script executes as expected EXCEPT that I do not see the statistics at the end of the transfer. It terminates thusly
I have tried adding another ftp command such as ls to the end of the "here" document (in case the results were clipped by the bye command) but to no avail. The ls result immediately follows the ### - no stats I am at a loss.
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 ?
(this is a repost of the same thread in the networking/wireless forum, I think it's better suited here but couldn't see a way to move it) I have a Proliant Microserver, I have Ubuntu Server 10.10 installed onto to a USB stick (the server has an internal USB port). The storage drives are Samsung SpinPoint F1s. The server is plugged into a gbE switch, there is a link from that to a 200mbps powerline link, from there it goes to a 100mbps switch and then to my machine I was testing from.
I realise that a powerline link can often slow things up, but I use the same link for my Internet connection which will happily pull files down at around 4.3mb/s.. so I know the link isn't the bottleneck. If i copy anything via any of the samba shares then it transfers at around 1.5mb/s. This speed does not change if I try plugging the client into the same gbE switch as the server. Similar spees are shown if i transfer it over http via apache2 as well. Client machines are laptop running ubuntu and a win7 desktop. Speeds are the same copying to both of them. I have applied tweaks to samba as described here;
