Hi guys,

I am trying to upload about 40GB of 'stuff' to Googles apps servers but it is going painfully slow...about 120KB/s per application (yes not Kb).

Google docs max upload I have seen is 120KB, and Goog Picasa is also 120KB at the same time.

So it would appear maybe that each of my connections to the big G are not exceeding 120KB/s? Anyone know any reason for this? (using Snap).

I know I can stream a full HD (6000Kb/s) clip to others over my connection, so its definitely not maxing out my connection.  

Should I complain to my ISP, or is this expected from Google?

ADSL2+ has a max line rate of 24.0 Mbit/s down and 1.3 Mbit/s up

So the most you'll ever get is 162.5 KB/sec up

Since it's rare to sync that high I'd say 120KB/sec is predy normal/good.


If you want anything better you need a diffrent tech like VDSL2

Sounds like possibly a Google limitation? is it a paid for service?

Sorry, I can stream a 6000Kb/s movie clip from my connection to others easily... My max upload is 10.2Mb up (44Mb down).

Currently I can get 120KB per connection, so if I make 4 connections for example, I get 480KB/s up.

The problem is google doesn't make applications that break down files into multiple parts, so they only upload 1 piece at a time.

If I could do 20 pieces @ 120KB simultaneously I would be happy.

Yes, Google Apps for Business.

I think I found the problem, and it's related to another thread here on GZ.

It has something to to do with Reach communication supplying Telstra and Snap etc, which makes the connection to Googles server over 280ms. It might also possibly limit each connection?

My other ADSL connection through VF can max out connecting to Google's servers, and the ping is only 70ms. Go figure!

There is a big difference between 70ms and 280ms IMO.

Yep, this is crazy... As of right now...

My VF ADSL2+ connection hits an upload speed of 1050Kbps,

and My Snap VDSL2+ connection hits an upload of 350Kbps......

Going to make a phone call now...

That other thread about Telstraclear/Reach throughput problems never did get a resolution.

where to start....

* increased latency decreases throughput
* congested pipes decreases throughput
* each router could have an impact, especially busy ones
* throttling on servers descreses throughput

i'd probably be looking to open a ticket with google first, to see if they are throttling things, then open a ticket with your ISP

Just rang Snap, and its a known issue with Google stuff only apparently. He did say it has only been going on for less than a week. Maybe its a separate issue than the Reach one?

Hopefully they get some fix next week or so, but by then my 40GB would have already been uploaded... :( 

At least when it gets fixed my ongoing daily backups to the Goog will be fast...

Same here, you'd need something like a Mikrotik router that does packet inspection. It gives you all kinds of data about each connection. Then you can use something called Ntop web server to visualize it.

ntop shows the current network usage. It displays a list of hosts that are currently using the network and reports information concerning the IP (Internet Protocol) and Fibre Channel (FC) traffic generated by each host. The traffic is sorted according to host and protocol. Protocols (user configurable) include:
  • TCP/UDP/ICMP
  • (R)ARP
  • IPX
  • DLC
  • IPsec
  • AppleTalk
  • Netbios
  • TCP/UDP
    • FTP
    • HTTP
    • DNS
    • Telnet
    • SMTP/POP/IMAP
    • SNMP
    • NFS
    • X11
     
  • Fibre Channel
    • Control Traffic - SW2,GS3,ELS
    • SCSI
 

ntop's author strongly believes in open source software and encourages everyone to modify, improve and extend ntop in the interest of the whole Internet community according to the enclosed licence (see COPYING).

Problems, bugs, questions, desirable enhancements, source code contributions, etc., should be sent to the mailing list.

For information on ntop and information privacy, see this page.

Yeah, it's ongoing. All I've been told each time I ask is more less "we're still working on it".


Edit: Assuming you are talking about my thread :-)
