Description (last modified by Tim Kosse)

Hi there,

Why it is not possible to change Maximum Simultaneous Transfers bigger than 10 ?
I have access to High Internet Speed and I want to upload 8000 small files (Joomla CMS)to my server but I should wait a lot.
CuteFTP Allow us to use 200 Maximum Simultaneous Transfers !
But I love FileZilla. FileZilla is the best FTP Client for linux.

Best Regards

This limit is intentional. FTP has a high protocol overhead, using too many parallel connections can easily overwhelm servers.

If you feel you need more than 10 connections, there's something wrong with your internet connection.

I'd like to have this ticket looked into once more.

It should not be the client that limits the maximum amount of connections to the FTP server but the FTP server software itself. Every recent released FTP server software that I have looked at has the ability to limit connections per user. In this case the client software would be smart enough to limit itself temporarily.

The client software could still have an option to limit the maximum simultaneous transfers, but have a 0 to disable limiting or something. It's very much an inconvenience to open up multiple instances to upload more than 10 files at once.

I personally am having to download and upload essentially millions of files at once and to fully saturate the line I need to upload multiple files at once, in greater amounts than 10.

Any chance of getting this changed now?

I am currently downloading 200k files. I have plenty of free bandwidth but latency limits how fast files complete/start. 6 years is a long time, and we have a lot more bandwidth now.

If it would be better to open a new ticket/request, I will happily do that.


EDIT: This is the first google result for "how to raise simultaneous downloads in filezilla".

Can we please bump this?

comment:6 by tutugreen, 3 years ago

+1 For this.
I need to upload 100k small files in LAN(1Gbps), 1->10 Simultaneous have a speed up (<400Kbps to 2Mbps) but not enough.

Pls re-open, modern 21st century compute & network technology can easily handle hundreds of concurrent SFTP/FTP sessions, no reason keeping limit for historical reasons.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
