Speed Limiter Properties Rate Increase

Postby sdabrams3 » Sun Feb 07, 2021 3:04 pm

Administrators,

Also have a gigabit connection please allow this setting to reach 900 Mbps.

Would like to set this to 900Mbps and leave 100mpbs for streaming movies and TV.

These speeds are becoming more common every day.

200 Mbps is really slow by today's standards.

Thank you
Scott A

I'll have to figure out how. 900 Mbps is so fast that no mechanism for pausing to slow the download, except spinning a thread, could possibly be accurate enough.

I have to say many people want to throttle speed but run a bunch of connections. The most natural way to allow both streaming and Newsbin to operate at the same time is to reduce the connection count in Newsbin.

Throttling many connections is like driving with one foot on the brake and one on the gas.

Understand will consider dropping down to 50 threads instead of 60 which caps me out at 1GB to see if that helps.

Thanks

I'm thinking more like 10-15. I get 500+ with 6 connections.
