Connecting to 3CB repo


Hi guys, 

I am trying to update my mods and for some reason it is taking forever to check files then once it does the download speed fluctuates drastically meaning that a small 4GB download is taking me forever to complete.
Anyone got any feedback or information on why this could be?

Im in the UK and can connect to the other repos I use reliably so I do not believe it is my end

Do you want your forum name changing to sausage?
:D


I found the same issue, changing it to 1 connection seemed to speed it right up yup.

Any man that can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

surely it should do the opposite, strange.

My head is on a swivel, I just left the WD-40 at home.

If you have more than one internet connection then it will benefit from more connections most only have one so connecting multiple times is of no benefit

not sure if that is how it works: 

The server limits the number of connections that can be made per client. Each connection can download a file simultaneously. So I would suspect the repo is limiting to <5; still not sure why that would make choosing 1 quicker than choosing 5 on the client.

sorry but this is just wrong...
for example a website, every item on the website, every jpg, every icon, every script, everything gets loaded individually with its own connection!
and thats totally normal behavior.

and on my end the 5 parallel connections speed things up for me.
it just means it loads 5 files at the same time and not just one....
on the a3s client the shown download speed goes kinda crazy when you use more than 1 connection because it calculates its average speed by its actual workload.
and if there are a lot of 1kb files (keyfiles) it cant reacht speeds up to 2MB/s , because the file already transferred after 1kb/s.
so thatswhy it jumps up and down...

so i'am interested if it actually took longer or you assumed it because it showed you higher estimated time?!

the client is limiting, its a value you can predefine on the server side of the repo, but the limit is actually done by your a3s client.
the server can easily handle around 20 people downloading with 5 connections at the same time (the bandwidth wont be good, but the server will be still bored)

there might be cases where 1 connection will be faster but thats normally a client side thing
