Slow Download from Google Drive

Question

Hello,

 

I'm having an issue where I'm able to upload data anywhere between 150mbps to 300mbps, however my download rates are consistently sub 20mbps (and at times less than 5).  I'm on a synchronous 1gig connection.  Anything I can do to troubleshoot this issue?  I had envisioned being able to stream from plex, however, even at 8mb/sec trans-coding, I'm getting constant buffering, and videos take quite a while to load. 

 

Attached is fairly typical.

Done, and still getting the same issue.  I've increased all the way to as much as 30, and for plex, it doesn't seem to help.  It seems as though it's downloading 1mb at a time.

What did you set your minimum download size to when mounting the drive?  If you have it mounted currently, you can hover your mouse over the area where it says the size of the drive in stablebit and it will display the minimum download size.  You will want to set this to a higher number.

With your connection, set you chunk size to 20MB, set your minimum download size to 20MB, 400 to 800MB prefetch and 20 threads, you should get solid download performance (100Mbps+)

 

It will take longer to load initially on startup, but then it will play smoothly throughout the video. 

 

Make sure you've got a solid SSD cache disk.

Yeah make sure you have prefetch set up correctly, more threads but not too much you will get throttled and 20 MB chunk sizes are good.

I wouldn't recommend more than 10 threads here.   More than that can potentially cause issues (eg, trigger Google's flood production and throttle you)
