    Speed Test please - Hivelocity 50mbit

    http://206.51.233.125/test.test

    Please could you mention where you are downloading from and your connection speed.

    This is a 50mbit server but i can usually only push 20mbits. I can get it to push 35mbits if i do multiple file transfers , server to server.

    My Users complained that they were only getting 80-100kb/sec on a single IE connection. I tested it out with two of my dedicated servers at theplanet (100mbit) and alphared (50mbit) using wget and got speeds of 350 kb/sec.

    After opening a ticket i was simply told the speed is slow because it depends where you download from. An explination i am not happy with. Yes speeds are dependant on location but a 50mbit server shouldn't be reduced to 4mbits whilst doing server to server transfer with a 100mbit server, and Home users shouldn't be getting speeds of 1mbit and less on a near idle 50mbit dedicated server.

    I am hoping with your help i can get some results to prove my case.

    Thank you for your help and time

    On our Alpha Red AboveNET network, here is the speed test:

    Are you running something on it right now thats using your bandwidth?

    No nothing... current output is 5mbits. Server load is non existant.

    Edit : Just restarted it and current network output is 0.5% So there is nothing else using the bandwidth apart from that testfile

    80kbps from Comcast in SE Michigan.

    Definitely not a hi-po server - the network is throttled to "Joe User". I can get 300 - 400kbps from most any server with a good link.

    EDIT - Just a note, the transfer starts off very quick and then throttles down. It really looks like your provider is limiting tranfer speeds.

    Kakashi is using Windows , are you having the same issue with a HV server ? If you are please pm me your details and I would be happy to have a technician look into your issue as well.

    It turned out Kakashi's issue was something to do with his webserver on the machine.

    Yes i am using windows 2003

    The problem as it turns out seems to be with apache, on the windows server.

    Apache 1.3 ( default config) was giving 300 - 400 kb/sec between servers ( as results above show)

    Apache 2.0 (default config) was giving 1.1 - 1.3 MB/sec

    Abyss Webserver was giving 300 - 400 kb/sec

    IIS was giving 2.2-2.4 MB/sec.

    I have 8 other windows servers and this is a first for me.
    Still quite baffled to be honest,but at least the problem was not with the hardware.

    Great support.
