Ubuntu :: External HD Very Slow / Make It Up?

Feb 21, 2011

I worry about mounting properly an external USB hard disk.
It is a sata 1To NTFS formatted
It works perfectly with a XP SP3.
With xuxbuntu 10.10 , with ntfs-3g installed , it is VERY long to transfer data:it took almost 3 days for 360Go.
When I connect to the station , it automatically mount by itself on /media/disk without any option;I suspect bad options are used and no use of NTFS-3G.
How to oblige it to mount with good options?

So I just reinstalled OpenSUSE 11.2 and I went from having 20-30 mbps speed to and from my 1 tb usb ntfs external hard drive to having about 1 mbps transfer speeds now.

Ubuntu :: Slow Boot From External HDD?

Jun 5, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an external hard disk. It boots very very slow. I get a black screen for about 2 minutes, with the led of the HDD regularly blinking. The hard disk is OK, so it's type isn't the issue here. Is there anything I can do about it?

I can't (don't want to) install it on my main hard disk, since I already have Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7 installed there and it's getting a bit too crowded.

Ubuntu :: Writing To External Media Is Slow To Finalize?

May 21, 2010

I have a USB hub on my desk, and also a multi-card reader in the front-panel of the computer (connected to a USB PCI card).

I have found that when I write files to a USB "thumb" drive plugged into the USB hub, or to a card in the multi-card reader (I have tried SD, SDHC, CompactFlash and MMC) the file is written quickly. The progress bar that appears on the screen goes to almost 100%, but then stops...

If I try to unmount the filesystem (either umount on the command line, or MB3 and eject or unmount option) I get a message that the device is busy. Sometimes, this stays busy for three minutes.

The filesystems on these cards are almost always FAT32; they are for digital cameras, media players, or are for exchanging files between home and office (where I use WinXP).

Ubuntu :: Very Slow Write Speeds To USB External Hard Drive?

Oct 11, 2010

I'm trying to back up my hard drive to a 2 TB WD external so that I can do a clean install of 10.10, however I'm getting tremendously slow write speeds. It hovers around 1.5 MB/s and steadily slows from there. It tells me it will take 150+ hours to transfer 400 GB of data.

I have a AMD quad core processor and 8 gigs of ddr3 ram... USB 2.0... I feel this should go much faster.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed To External Hard Drive / Whole System Is Very Slow

Aug 3, 2011

My father installed Kubuntu to his external hard drive to try it out, however, it is running extremely slowly. It takes a good minute and a half to boot to the Plasma desktop and it even seems to run faster off of the LiveCD.His system easily meets the specifications to run Kubuntu (4 gigs of RAM, decent NVIDIA graphics card) yet it slows to a crawl immediately upon booting. Does anyone know how to fix this? The hard drive is a Western Digital MyBook, 475GB model.

Ubuntu :: Disk Very Slow After Going From 9.04 To 10.04 / Make It Up?

Oct 1, 2010

My disk is very slow after I installed ubuntu 10.04 over my old 9.04. Doing some tinkering helped a little code...

But it is still far too slow. On the other version, I had a custom partition setup, with the home partition with 100GB, and ext3 (and other partitions for swap, boot, root folder and space for a windows partition I never cared to install ).

This time I am using a standard Lynx setup (2 partitions, the swap and the main one with almost 250Gb, using ext4).

Some applications I develop, that use disk for some unit tests, are now very slow to work with. Is there a way to making it faster? Going back to 9.04? Waiting for 10,10? Gparting and making partitions smaller on ext3? I don't know if any of these will work.

I am running Lenny. USB storage devices are painfully slow, if the data to be copied is above 4GB it works on transferring for more than half an hour and then comes up with an error dialog(saying something like file size is too big). The problem exists in both read and write.

I did google a bit and here is the output of lsmod | grep hci

Ubuntu Servers :: FTP Slow In Certain Folders / Make It Up?

Jul 21, 2010

I posted this yesterday, but my post completely disappeared (I looked high and low -- nothing.)
I am using Ubuntu Server 10.04, all the latests updates.
For an FTP Server, I use ProFTP.

One specific directory, and it's subdirectories on my server will not download at a reasonable rate. They move at about 17-50KBPS.
All other folders work fine, at around 1.5-2.5MBPS.

What is going on? I have no idea how to troubleshoot this. The files being transfered are in a directory under home. They should have no permissions issues (I reapplied the permissions I want already), I tried restarting ProFTP, the files vary in sizes (from a few kilobytes to about 120 megabytes).
I use Webmin for most web management.

I am not having overload issues with my network card or CPU utilization while downloading these files. They are being accessed from the local network.

This issue is taxing because the files in question are backup files.

Ubuntu :: Visual Effects Slow / Make It Up?

Aug 1, 2010

I recently install Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer and enabled the top effects option when choosing desktop background, screensavers etc. It worked fine for a couple of days then started to take about 3-5 seconds up maximize any program it ran - it minizes them instantly but takes ages the opposite way around.

My laptop has a core duo processor, 3gb of RAM, a ATI 3400 512mb graphics card, when I ran Vista on it, it could easily handle Vista built in effects and run Crysis well on low settings - I very much doubt the problem is that my computer isnt powerful enough. Is there anyway I can get Ubuntu's special effects to work properly again? Atm normal effects wont work either - I am having to use the No Effects option.

Ubuntu :: Slow Transfer Speeds Via HDD To HDD (10.10) / Make It Up?

Apr 6, 2011

I have read many threads but cannot find a solution on this code...

Now no matter how i transfer if its from HDD to HDD or to SSD i never get more then 18-20MB/sec, i just tried booting to my live CD and was able to transfer with 24-25MB/sec

This is really slow, since the worst (2.0TB) can do a minimum of 30 READ

Anybody got any ideas, this seems to be something that has plagued ubuntu for years, and no i don't want to try other distros, i tried almost all of them a year ago and finally went with ubuntu

Ubuntu Installation :: Slow Boot After Upgrade To 10.04 / Make It Up?

It stays at this screen for a good 15 seconds before showing me the login screen. I've attached the results from a boot info script.

Ubuntu :: How To Make Filezilla Save To External Hdd

Jan 31, 2010

Installed Filezilla FTP-client, and wants to save the downloaded files to my external OneTouch4 HDD. In Windows, you've got letters for different drives, like c: d: and so on. I understand my external HDD is /dev/sdb1/ in Ubuntu (9.1). My local place is just called "/" in Filezilla,I guess this refers to my root.It shows different folders, like bin, boot, cdrom, dev etc. When I try to type in /dev/sdb1/ here, I just get an error saying it does'n exist, or cannot be accessed.

PS: My external hdd is mounted, it has its own icon on the desktop.

Programming :: Slow Shell Script / Make It Up?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm a truly ordinary shell scripter (and unfortunately I know nothing about any higher-level language), but I have an important script to run to count the number of files in our client directories.

Problem is that while we've not got a lot of clients (circa 100), they might have a LOT (> 1000s) of files.

And my script is REALLY slow code...

PS How slow? Well I started a cron job at 0005 yesterday, and as of 0930 today its only a little over half-way through all our clients.

Debian Configuration :: Torrent Traffic Very Slow / Make It Up?

Jul 10, 2011

I am running on debian squeeze 6.0.2. I have been using it for the last id say 3 weeks and really am enjoying it.

I generally use transmission-gtk to share files over the internet. Normally I seed torrents at 110-160kb/s for hours at a time. However after messing around with firestarter my upload speed for seeding torrents rarely peaks over 70kb/s. I have purged firestarter with no success of my regular upload speed, and am very confused as to what happened. I also notice sometimes when it will get to about 70kb/s it will immediately drop down to the 20-30kb/s range.

For incoming bittorrent connections I use port 37294. I have set port 37294 to be allowed in my firewall, and forwarded in my router (since purging firestarter did not help I just reinstalled it).

I have also read allowing ports 6881-6889 is important, but I have never done that in my history of using torrents, and I have never experienced a decrease in UL speed like this.

Have I done something incorrect? I have never had this issue on other machines?

Debian Hardware :: RTL8723BE Slow After Update - Also Cannot Run Make

Mar 26, 2016

My system is rather flaky as of late. I was trying, yet again, to get the internal bluetooth (rtl8723be) to work, so I could free up one of only two usb ports on the lenovo ideapad 100. In my blinding brilliance I typed make uninstall, after make did not work (why I did this, I still don't know), and I noticed that it said btusb.ko was removed, as expected at reboot, no bluetooth adaptors were found, I tried reinstalling bluetooth via apt-get, no success, so finally I just ran apt-get update, and apt-get upgrade, once finished, my system did not want to reboot with a sudo init 6, so I hard powered it off and restarted, after it's obligatory fsck, everything okie dokie, it booted up and voila, bluetooth working again, or should I say, the usb adaptor bluetooth, not the rtl8723be.

So I figured, ah, the heck with it, just enjoy my speaker for watching a movie via kodi, and that's when I see that it's buffering continuously so I check a couple different speed tests, and my wifi is only pulling 2.0ish mb down, I booted into windows 10, just to check, and sure enough, same result.....so I don't know if the adapter is dying or what, so, I figure, I'll try and update the driver, this is where I run into not being able to run any make commands they all error with:

Code: Select allmake[1]: Entering directory '/lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/build'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'modules'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/build'
Makefile:393: recipe for target 'LINUX' failed
make: *** [LINUX] Error 2

I have installed the linux headers, and followed this post here, [URL] .... (substituting my uname -r of course)

still having the sudo init 6 not working, and the slow wifi, as well as internal bluetooth not working.

Fedora :: Unrar Suddenly Slow / Make It High?

Dec 11, 2009

I've just noticed that unrar is suddenly taking minutes to extract instead of seconds.

I can remember if its recently been updated, but I've uninstalled and reinstalled it and the version is: unrar.x86_64 0:3.7.8-3.fc10

I've found a few Ubuntu posts about it on Google, but in true Ubuntu fashion nobody has any answers!

What's odd is that when I unrar a file from (Nautilus or "unrar x *.rar") it takes say 4mins, then if I do it again it takes 15secs, like as if its caching somewhere.

Fedora :: Extremly Slow Copy Speed (50K/s) / Make It Up?

Feb 17, 2011

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.
