#12250 new Bug report

Load balacing not ok

Reported by: Gerhard Schmidt Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: load balancing, small and large files Cc:
Component version: Filezilla 3.49.1 Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 10


Thanks for this excellent software. I use 3.49.1.
I have a very slow upload channel (ca. 60 kiB/s). I often upload pictures (small ones, thumbs) as well as larger videos (> 100 MiB).
When a very large file (video) is to be uploaded, the smaller ones next transfer very fast, but the large one goes down to less than 1 kiB/s. And very often the connection fails due to inactivity.
I have checked with my Fritz box that the upload from the box to the server provider is not causing the failure (this is always at max). Also the WLAN is not the cause because channel activity is low. So Filezilla is the only problem that is left as probable cause.
Is there load balancing in Filezilla? Why does it fail here?

Further comments on that:
1) If I allow only a single file to be uploaded, upload speed is only 1/2 or 1/3 of the available capacity, and connection drops due to inactivity occur every minute.
2) If two large files are uploaded simultaniously, one gets the whole bandwidth after a short while, the other one is starving. Connection is then dropped, and upload is restarted.
