so today I upgraded from 1.5.2+ to 1.6. Back home I tried
ftp'ing from it. I used to max my DSL bandwith, and dowmload from here
at about 61KB/s. Now I seem to be limited to something like 55KB/s.
I'm not the only one downloading from the server, but
there is plenty of free CPU and disk bandwith on both ends, and on the
previous downloads I did I was not alone on the server either.
I can ftp from a 1.5.3 host on the same segment at full speed, so it doesn't
looks like a network issue in the path. Ping -c100 on both hosts gives
similar results, with RTT average marginally smaller for
Did someone else notice this ?
I didn't notice differences in sysctl settings ...
