Something Weird Going On With Rate Limiting

Recommended Posts

2 windows machines on lan,

direct connection (arrows in front of device in devices tab),

rate limit local peers = true ,

download limits = 0,

 

upload limits from 1kB/s up to 1300kB/s are respected properly.

Upload limits > 1300kB/s result in an upload speed of 1300kB/s

Upload limit = 0 saturates the connection at 11MB/s

 

Does any one have an idea as to what could be going on ?

 

thx,

Tom.

Tommmii, 

 

Did you change limits to ">1300" after you tested 1-1300 without quitting BitTorrent Sync? If yes, try restarting the app after you changed limits. 

 

spYro,

not exactly. As it is enabled relay server in folder settings doesn't makes difference. It's the way devices are connected that matters. 

If they are connected directly (Tommmii has direct connection, as he said "arrows in front of device in devices tab"), limits are honored.

If they are connected via relay (cloud icon on tab 'Devices" instead of arrows) limits are not honored. And yes, this is a known issue.

Oh, thanks for that answer :)

So... our clients always have the cloud-icon.... But now i wonder why? They all should have direct access to each other... I will check that tomorrow and see, if i can get direct connections :D

@ Helen , the upload rate was set to 6000 and I noticed the actuel rate was 1300. I then quit btsync at both ends, and launched btsync again...no speed increase to the transfer rate.

 

After that I went experimenting...and found no solution.

 

SpYro , I had read your experiences with the relay servers and tried toggling that...no use.

Tom,

 

We'll try to reproduce your issue in our lab. Could you please share which versions of Windows do you use? Any installed firewalls , anti viruses or other security software?

win server 2008 R2 SP1

no security software.

 

win7 x86

K9 web protection, to limit internet browsing.

btsync uses the other machine's read-only secret.

 

I use the exact same setup at multiple locations. This one location is the only one with this symptom :-/

@spYro

 

Thanks!

 

I noticed a peer maxing out my uplink.  I unchecked "Use relay server when required" (properties tab of the folder info menu) and restarted the  client and now my upload limit is working properly.

@Tom,

 

Unfortunately, issue was not reproduced in our lab. However, some other issues, close to speed limits was resolved recently. Please stay tuned for 1.4 release which likely contains the fix for your issue.
