Some servers seem to limit bandwidth per-download and some per IP, because something throttles my download speed when I go from 4 to 5 to 6 simultaneous downloads from the same server. Or maybe I just hit my bandwidth limit.Torrents seem to peak at around 40Mbits.
I have a public wifi in my hostel but it never provide download speed more 100kbps. I am sure it has a speed limit of 100kbps per P.C because it always give download speed of 100kbps. If I connect two or more PC to same wifi each of them get speed of 100kbps.
I changed my plan to a 4Mbps unlimited connection. But my download speed still shows 573Kbps in ADSL settings webpage & get slow download speed. I called the ISP's customer care and they said it is because of the Modem's limit & they would change my modem shortly. Well, "shortly" wasn't defined and I have been following up on this since one week.
NFS is mounted on the server for backup disk space. When the backup job started, it could reach 80MB/s and we really do not expect it took so much bandwidth. So i need to find a way to limit the speed of writing to NFS.
Xtreme Download Manager (xdman) is an download manager app based on Java. it advanced and powerful download manager app which claims that can increase download speed up-to 500%! It also support pause and resume broken download and capture FLV videos from any sites .
I have noticed that yum seems to download 2 files at same time, considering my limited speed, this is a problem as I get a lot of "too slow" errors. How can I limit this? I have been looking at yum.conf man page, but Im not sure if max_connections is the right parameter to tweak.
