bandwidth limiting?

Postby blue » Wed Mar 21, 2007 11:31 am

did you guys put in some kind of b/w limiting, or is this being caused externally? i get 20k/s irrespective of where i'm dl'ing from.

I was noticing that downloads seemed slow earlier this morning when I tried to listen to the new songs. Some of they didn't even finish downloading, they would just stall.

That's because you are not administering the community. If you were, it would be done right. And if you didn't do it right we would get rid of you.

In any case it is impossible for this "community" to improve because you refuse to rotate the members through different roles and bring frsh new ideas constantly into use.

No. you have a better idea. everything is fine so why "fix it"' you need to fix your brains. they are incredibly misaligned.

weird.. i'm on DH too, and still only getting 20kb/s from you to me, but regular DL speed from me to me. maybe you're in a diff datacenter or something.

i'm sure it'll sort out eventually.

Hmmm... Not to be a whiner... but this problem does not seem to be resolving. The last few fights have been unstreamable from SF proper, but fully functional on blue's mirror. I wonder whahappen? Perhaps some griping to dreamhost is in order?

Bump! So, er, just so as ya know, the "stream all" function on the main page might as well be taken off... seeing as it no longer works. (Or is it working for other people? I just get little spurts of song-age interrupted by long periods of "buffering.") Any update on what might be causing the slow downloady-o? Help!

I'm still having these issues as well, and have switched to using Blue's backup.

Not quite as bad as Jack's example, but... Downloading from the Songfight server

A bandwidth test done directly after, to show my line connection speed

Yeah, it's hell of slow, and the downloads just stall and die once in a while.
