#7909 new Bug report

Max Simultaneous Transfers over set limit causes server timeouts

Reported by: Barry Ira Geller Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: winxp sp3


In Concurrent Transfers default was 4 but Filezilla was trying to send more than 8 simultaneous transfers causing Server to do dozens of 5 second timeouts since it has a limit of 8 concurrent transfers allowed. Verified this was the problem in cPanel, which showed 8 current transfers, with warnings. This occurred when I was uploading about 2200 files. Left about 120 as "failed".

Basically, even though setting was 4 concurrent transfers, program was sending 8 and trying to do more, stalling out my server.

After complete, I changed the settings to 3 simultaneous transfers, put the failed files back into live queue and resent OK.

Conclusion: the amount of files in upload queue caused something to override default simultaneous setting.

After further testing, even with 500 or more files, the superspeed of the download just seems to push/override filezilla's cuncurrency setting right into the roof of the max streams available.
