Ubuntu Networking :: Amazingly Slow File Transfer Over Network, SiS Haunting Again?
May 20, 2010
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
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 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.
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.
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 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.

i have a bit of a problem and it seems i am not alone, google gave me a lot of hits but no solution.i'm running a dual-boot system on my laptop.
ubuntu 9.10 is installed on ext3 windows xp sp3 on ntfs files are on another ntfs partition
if i want to copy a file (or folder) bigger than 250mb my laptop literally gives up until the file transfer is complete. opening up a terminal via keyboard shortcut gives my an idea how long a ice age can last.this happens with ext3 to ext3; ext3 to fat32; ext3 to ntfs and ntfs to ntfs.today i wanted to backup some files (12GB ~4k files) the first 4gb ran with 20MB/s (all open applications grayed out). after 2h i came back to see that only 6GB where done.
I have 8.04.3 server-32bit. It is on an HP 2.3ghz Pent 4 with 512 mb of RAM.I had previously installed Ubuntu and Kubuntu in a dual boot with XP (actually had a triple boot with XP, Ubuntu, and a BETA Windows 7) for a while, Grub got messed up so I ended up wiping it and just put my XP back on it. I have been intimidated by the command line and when thinking server, I tried the 30 day deal with windows Home server, its OK but it's $100.00 for the permenant version.
Anyway, I manned up to the challenge, installed Ubuntu server, set up as SSH and Samba. I administer from PuTTy and WEBMIN, I tried TightVNC but the GUI seemed very useless, so on a reinstall I went headless.The problem is I have alot of MP3 files I want to transfer back to the server that I had previously transfer to and back again from the Windows server, it was sceamin' fast compared to this. I have found threads talking about using NTFS, I have the EX3, or whatever the Ubuntu format is. Could that cause slow transfers, from NTSF through Samba to Ubuntu?
For the past week+ I have been experiencing very slow file transfers, moving files from one HDD to another - both internal, connected with SATA, should anyone care.. When I move any file, regardless of its size, it is moved with 1.1 MB/sec at very best That's a major pain in the behind, even for moving small amounts of data! If anyone could point me in the right direction, or give me a solution
I am trying to move over 1 Terrabyte of files from a two terrabyte drive into my Ext4 drive where Ubuntu 11.04 is installed. The two terrabyte drive is where my winxp used to be and it's currently paritioned into three partitions. I would like to reformat into a single partition that's why I'm moving the files.
When moving the files from the 2Terrabye NTFS partition into the Ext4 partitioned drive, the best transfer rate I could get is 11 megabytes per second. When I transfer from one NTFS drive to another NTFS drive, I could get as high as 70megabytes per second in WinXP. Is there a way to speed up the speed transfer?
Otherwise, the file transfer dialogue says it would take 26 hours to move all the files!!!
Edit: both drives are internal drives connected via a sata II.
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 ?
I've just managed to access my windows share from Ubuntu but am now getting write speeds (to xp share) of only 9MB/s over my wired network, anyone have any ideas as to why this may be? I've googled but can find no specific answer.
My NIC is: Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5784M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) (from lspci) on a Dell studio 1737)
I have a Hitachi SimpleNET adapter (entry-level NAS device) on a Seagate FreeAgent 1TB external HDD (formatted ext3). The NAS device is connected over 100MB/s ethernet to a Netgear Wireless G router. All other devices connect using Wireless G. The NAS runs embedded Linux on an ARM processor and it runs vsftpd and Samba for file transfers.
If I transfer a large file using an FTP client the transfer maxes out at around 2.5MB/s. For my purposes that's good enough, especially considering the Wireless G bottleneck. If I transfer a file from a Windows 7 client (using samba) I get around 2.2MB/s. I know the CIFS protocol has more overhead than FTP and the difference in speed isn't that noticeable.Any combination of Ubuntu and Samba results in me getting less than 1MB/s. I've tried mounting it through Nautilus (GVFS) and /etc/fstab. FTP from this same Ubuntu client gets around 2.5MB/s.
I don't have root access on the SimpleNET to change the smb.conf. I've made a few adjustments to the mount options with no success. how to either speed up 10.04 as a Samba client or mount a folder on an FTP server locally? I've tried both curlftpfs and FUSEFTP. With curlftpfs any write operation results in an I/O error and it crashes intermittently. With FUSEFTP I never got that far and couldn't even browse the folder.
I am struggling trying to understand the reason for a fairly slow data transfer rate between two machines. ( tried point to point and also via a 1 gb switch ) One is nfs/http/ftp server ( with raid1 and lvm on top ), the other one my desktop pc. Both OS with default options, no changes to kernel in proc or other sort of thing.
Hardware is full recognized and perfectly working: The server has 4gb ram, Intel Core 2 Duo CPUE6850 @ 3.00GHz, 1000Mb/s NIC card and Lucid 10.04 64 bit, 250Giga Hard disk. The client has 3gb ram, Intel Core 2 CPU 6320 @ 1.86GHz, 1000Mb/s NIC card and Ubuntu Maverick 32bit , 150Gb Hard disk.

This is a recent problem, and I can't pinpoint any change/upgrade that would cause this. Rsync transfer from Client to Server: sent 11756196 bytes received 1032741 bytes 138258.78 bytes/sec total size is 144333466390 speedup is 11285.81 Pinging back and forth from each machine is fine. No Ifconfig errors Client, but Server has RX packet errors.
Whenever I transfer a movie into my 16GB USB flash disk, my whole system becomes windows-like and unusable!
When i drag the file(s) into the USB disk folder, it starts out fine and pretty darn fast (25mb/sec) then slowly decreases until it's unbearably slow (3m/sec) and as a side effect my whole system starts deteriorating. I basically have to wait for the file to finish transferring before i can use my desktop again!
This has been happening with every version since Karmic (all 64bit)- I put up with it because I don't use the USB stick that much.. but lately it's been my go to source for transfering large files to/from work.
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
When I try to transfer a large file lets say 700Mb or so my wireless shuts down and i have to restart my ubuntu computer the other computer is vista.ubuntu is on a wusb54gver4 and vista is going through a wrt54g tm running dd-wrt mega.I

New Linux user here. I'm running 11.3 x64 gnome (runlevel3) on my headless home file server. I've mounted my RAID array onto /shared and have setup samba (through Yast) for file sharing. However I am having an issue when I transfer multiple small files over the network (i.e music) it will crash the box. I am unable to reach it through ping or SSH. It is also physically unresponsive where by connecting a keyboard or mouse to the system will not work.
Looking through /var/log/messages does not indicate any sort of issue. I've tried turning off unnecessary programs (rTorrent etc) to make sure it isn't overloading the connections however the box still crashes. Although transferring files locally from HDD to HDD does not crash the server.
I am currently running Windows Xp with service pack 3 and OpenSuse 11.0 (i586) on the same machine on separate hard drives. here are the specs on the machine. (Note: it is only a single core machine. I have no idea why both Suse and Windows say it is dual core as the processor was bought and installed months before dual cores went on the market.)
OS Information OS: Linux 184.108.40.206-0.5-default i686 Current user: telknor@linux-l3e2 System: openSUSE 11.0 (i586) KDE: 4.0.4 (KDE 4.0.4 >= 20080505) "release 15.4"
Now on to my problem. About a year ago I had to wipe my Windows drive and backed up about 32 GB of stuff from it to my OpenSuse drive. I did this from the Suse OS using Dolphin. In fact I can see, open, change, delete, modify layout, and move stuff around on the Windows drive all day long from Suse. I can as I said pull stuff over to the Suse drive from Windows drive while in Suse and save to Suse drive. Now I have need of the stuff that was moved but Windows does not see the Suse drive for what it is. Just says 'unknown partion type' gives size in GB and ignores it otherwise. From Suse if I try to move stuff back to the Windows drive it starts to transfer then stops and tells me it does not have permission to access the destination drive, folder, or location depending on how I tried to save it to the Windows drive. Adding new hard drives to the system does not help and the external 1 TB drive we have Suse can see it but will not do anything with it. The thumb drives on the other hand Suse does not have a problem with. It will open, read, and write to them all day long. Suse will not access the network to dump files to the network file server and it does not see any other systems on the network not even the ones running the same OS. I want to do the following:
1. Move the Windows files from the Suse drive to the Windows drive in same machine or to the network file server (also a windows machine)
2. Move all the Suse files to another machine running same Suse OS.
3. Wipe the Suse drive in this Machine so that Windows can use it.
When accessing an NFS mount for a large (200MB+) file transfer, the transfer starts rapidly, then becomes slower and slower until it hangs. On several occasions, it has frozen the client machine. Both client and server are set to default to nfs version 3. Slowdown and hang also occur when connecting to FreeBSD NFS mounts.
Presumably (I hope), there is some sort of configuration for the client that needs to be set. what should be changed in the configuration? This worked out of the box in OpenSUSE 11.0.
it has Adobe Illustrator, I would like to get a file or three across to it. How? The only Mac bit that seems to know what a network card is is something called 'airport'. DHCP is all around it. "Network" means 56k modem, which can't connect to anything. If I show it a usb disk, it wants drivers, which apple hardly have up still for os 9.0.4.
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 managed to ssh lan for file transfer but now i want to connect to ssh again for file transfer but from another city,not lan, What ip do i type in Host Ip? I mean,i can tell them to start the ssh server but then i need to type the external ip.
I have ubuntu 10.04 on my netbook and all my files on my XP desktop. How can I connect the two so that I can transfer files from the XP machine to the Ubuntu netbook? Both have WiFi and ethernet. I am not fluent in windows networking but could manage to join two xp machines using an ethernet cable and naming the two with the same workgroup then setting a folder as shared!
