amule stops downloading
« on: June 22, 2022, 05:51:05 PM »

hi, when I open amule, he starts downloading even at 300kb for each file.
After a few minutes he stops downloading.
I close it and reopen it and it starts downloading again.
It is a pain to close the program and reopen it every 5 or 10 minutes.
Is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks

How do you know the problem is aMule? or even on your end? have you done controlled test to verify?

The person who is downloading may have misconfigured client which keep asking for chunks and aMule just filters it and then eventually bans it for excessive requests. I have seen some clients who takes 40-50mins to download few KBs which is isolated only to them nothing to do with aMule.

If you insist its on your end you should share something very popular like linux iso9660 and see.

if my client is banned, why restart amule, download again?

You said 'he' referring to another person. If they make excessive requests which can happen from modified clients and it will be banned, which is temporary as its cleared when you restart.

many people, including me, have same issue
Look at these posts:

It semms linux related, cause in my case on a windows PC there is no download speed drop.
It happens either with 2.3.2 and 2.3.3 with both Ubuntu and Debian

when I have time I will try on virtual machines with the same characteristics, one with Windows and the other with Linux, to check if even in this case the problem occurs only on Linux
