Continuing Very Slow Downloads

 

Download speeds for POI's continue to be at a snails pace. I just downloaded the Walmart POI (gpx) at an unbelievable 6 KB/sec & it took more than 10 minutes.

There must be some kind of problem since I was not experiencing this last week at all.

Has Jon made any headway in identifying the problem?

Thanks.

My internet slowed down to almost nothing about 30 minutes ago. Now fine.

39 KB/S?

Just DL'd one of my Faves, and that's what the speed was.

This must be a shared drive on the server, with multiple URL's on it. It sucks for speed.

olympics?

Could be demands for bandwidth to stream events.

Highly unlikely, I'd say. Other sites work fine, and load quickly.

Slow downloads

I have to agree with user comments. Download speed seems to be slower than before. I just downloaded the Big 5 Sporting Goods poi files and they did seem slow. Wonder if they are having network issues.

performance across the Internet

End-to-end performance across the Internet can be tricky to troubleshoot.

When I worked at a larger company, we used distributed monitoring tools (like Gomez or Keynote) to measure performance from dozens of different locations around the internet. They're very expensive, though, so I don't have access to them for POI Factory.

Box Car's comment might be on the mark for some cases. Here's an article from Keynote that talks about the impact of streaming video from Olympic events:

http://blogs.keynote.com/the_watch/2012/07/olympic-drag.html

Websites that are hosted at different spots on the Internet will have traffic that takes different paths to reach the same end-user, so performance can vary from site-to-site.

Also, sites with more resources often use Content Delivery Networks to distribute and serve content from multiple points on the internet, so traffic is usually able to come from a network that is nearby and avoid areas of congestion.

I'll continue to watch things from the server side, but so far I'm not finding anything out of the norm. sad

Thanks Jon

Thanks Jon. Appreciate the reply.

Really weird. The problem is that this is only happening on this site & is happening on my 3 different computers which are running different operating systems.

This morning I'm getting about 23 KB/sec. I hope it's the Olympics & streaming.

Fred

slow

I am finding the same problem but it is with all sites, expeicalyy when in yahoo. Some time it takese minutes to download a message. sad

Just downloaded...

two updated POI files and averaged 14 KB/sec. That's much slower than I typically get on this site. Downloads appeared to stall like there was a load issue. Hope this helps you troubleshoot any issues.

some additional data points

For the downloads I tested last night and this morning from my home (Qwest/Century Link DSL in Idaho), Firefox has been reporting roughly 250 - 350 KB/sec at the end of the transfer. The whole walmart.gpx file finishes in just 5 or 6 seconds.

I just did a Pingplotter

I just did a 10 min PingPlotter test to this site...
Whereas last week I saw packet loss, it's fine today, but slow-ness still remains...

I think it's something to do with site, as opposed to connections to it....

occasional 10% loss from

Packet loss happens in the network between your computer and the server.

>ae-1.gw-prtr-r3-1a.slr.lxa.oneandone.net

That's one of the hosting company's network routers, so it looks like they may be experiencing some congestion in their data center, and I'll need to keep an eye on that.

Do you recall which router(s) were showing packet loss last week?

On the server, load average and CPU useage look good. Average idle share has been 67.83% over the last day and 65.26% over the last hour.

Monday evening, I'll fire up

Monday evening, I'll fire up PingPlotter and if I see packet loss, I'll break that loss out to a separate log.... It will be date, time, and loss graphed.... and I can save jpeg's of the files showing all logs....

I see multiple oneandone and onlinehome as the final destinations.... right ??

Once I get a good log, I'll post, and you can email my secondary email address I posted on the other thread, and I'll reply with the pics...

I'm doing a log now with 3 oneandone and one onlinehome breakouts....

I've got a 10 min long log saved as a jpeg picture.

I'll use this as a reference, and Monday PM do another... For comparison...

final destination

Thanks JanJ.

>I see multiple oneandone and onlinehome as the final destinations.... right ??

onlinehome is the server (at the very end of the tracerout list). It's the final destination. All of the oneandone.net and other entries are for network routers along the way.

If you have a way of emailing me. do so and I'll show you the path I take to get to you...

It isn't as bad as what I saw last week, and that's why I said I'd keep it, and use it as a reference for later...
