Download speed with google drive.


Hi everybody,

With fiber 600/600 the max download rate i could achieve was 100mbps but for upload its 400-500mbps.


Is there a reason for this?



Images attached.

Drop the number of threads to 10 each, increase the minimum download size to 10+ MB, and drop the prefetch time window to 30-60 seconds. 

That should help. 


really thanks, now its working at more than 300mbps+


btw, what about upload threshold ? do i need to leve it at 1,00mb ?

Awesome, glad to hear it! 

For all of this: 
https://stablebit.com/Support/CloudDrive/Manual?Section=I/O Performance

The reason that my suggestion worked is that it's less threads grabbing much more data. That means a bit more latency (since it's waiting on more data, at once), but there is less overhead (HTTP, REST or other API calls, basically).  And the Prefetch Time Window is the ... window for the trigger to occur. You want smaller here, so that it only prefetches on larger, sequential reads. 

For the upload threshold, this stops uploads from happening if data is still being written.  This means that uploads should happen less often, but should get whole chunks of data, rather than uploading the same chunk (or parts of the same chunk) again and again, wasting API calls, basically.  So, this is an optimization, and should be fine at it's default.
