maximum simultaneous transfers >10?

#1 Post by miscreant » 2008-02-06 01:19

Hi there,

I do a lot of remote backups of my servers in distant places over night, I'm wondering if it's possible to increase maximum simultaneous transfers to a figure above 10? 20 would be nice. Due to our crappy international links, I can only get ~120KB/sec per connection, however I can max out 20-30 of these connections at 120KB.

I have the same problem. My server can do >3M/s upload in total but somehow each connection thread is limited to ~20K/s. Increasing the number of connections brings a linear increase in total transfer speed.

It is probably too late to help the OP with this issue but maybe it'll interest others: you can change the max simultaneous transfers to a number beyond that is allowed in the GUI by modifying the filezilla.xml settings file. Look for a Number of Transfers setting and change it to the desired value.

Note that I have no idea whether this has any unexpected effects on FZ behaviour, or what the actual limits are. Also, if you change your settings from within the GUI, any max transfers limit exceeding 10 will be set back to 10.
