Please help me get to the bottom of why I'm experiencing slow, in relative terms, compared to my dedicated server 1Gb connection.




Average speeds, this is while something is uploading at 130Mb.


With 20 threads I am seeing 100 - 140Mb on a machine with gigabit up / down. With 10 threads, I see 60Mb max at all times. That seems a long way off from 900 potential?


2 x CloudDrives in a Drivepool with 2 x file duplication (OS + 1 cache on one drive, other drive cache on another drive, both HDD, both encrypted


Network adapter is set to Public, yet firewall won't let me edit to allow to allow for public networks for some reason. Would this have an impact?


I noticed there are firewall rules that don't have it set to allow public connections. Do I need to enable any?




Min download size: 20MB

Chunk Cache Size: 100MB

lol, yup, that could do it. :)


If you're still having issues, try increasing the "minimum download size".  And try decreasing the number of threads (to about 5-7 for each).
