Parallel File Transfer And Transfer Eta

Recommended Posts

It seems like syncing occurs sequentially. Only one file is uploaded at a time and there is no way to tell the order things will be transferred in or where a particular file is in the queue. This makes it particularly difficult to get an ETA of any sort on when a particular file transfer will finish.

 

Ideally, files would transfer in parallel. This may mean all of them would take longer, but at least you would be able to tell how long you have to wait.

Would it be possible to add this as a feature, or alternatively provide more specifics on the queue backlog / ETA for a specific file through the API? It will also be useful to have btsync use existing transfer speeds to provide a time estimate for completion via the API, knowing of course that it can change if the speed changes.

 

I see multiple file transfers has been requested before here:
