Possible Server Issue: VERY slow downloads of WU's.

Postby RamonetB » Mon Mar 06, 2017 5:09 pm

I've been seeing an issue over the weekend where the majority of my CPU / SMP WU's using core A7 are downloading extremely slowly. As in, taking almost 2 hours at times for a 3MB - 15MB file.

All the ones that are being affected seem to be getting their WU's from 171.67.108.101.

Here is a log entry:

Other servers (so far, I haven't done a thorough log audit) don't seem to be exhibiting this issue. I've also verified network connections and speeds on my end. Everything else appears in order.

Is something odd going on with this server?

Thanks,

Just to add some more details to this:

It is certainly something to do with this server or a connection to it: 171.67.108.101

After clearing out the work folder and restarting the client, the same systems will quickly download a WU from a different one, such as: 155.247.166.219.
But after one or two WU's, it will return to 171.67.108.101 and the slow downloads are back.

Bummer.

No one else is reporting download speed issues with this server, possibly the problem is between your system and there. Can you provide the results of a traceroute to that server?

Bruce, Joe,

I'm starting to see the same behavior on other servers as well. So it definitely must be something happening on my side or something in between.
Traceroute suggests there is no trouble, though, at least on 171.67.108.101.

This particular computer is currently experiencing slow downloads but the traceroute response is peppy:

I could suspect something odd happening on the new equipment I'm testing, but I'm also seeing this on tried and true hardware.
I guess I better start looking further down my network line. I'm not sure what is going on.

In addition to "ping" you should be able to open http://(Ip address) or http://(Ip address:port) though I'm not sure that just looking at the homepage is going to give you any indication fo upload/download speeds.
