Experiences with many files/big files

So, now I’ve finally thrown all my files at my nextbox. First thing to notice: It works, but the desktop client is so slow. And I dont get why. I have 200gbs of data, many small files, some big files.

  • the desktop client (Linux, 3.3.5) takes about 10-20 minutes to “check files for changes”
  • then it starts uploading. 200mb in 30 minutes, this time ;-). being in the same network as the box.
  • I’ve not configured anything special (to my knowledge)

I know this is quite cloud and not box specific, but maybe someone has similar experiences, or even a solution?

also, the very big files (>4gb) are not uploaded, they cause a “connection timed out” error in the desktop client. hm. load is between 1 and about 4, memory used not more than 1gb (of 8).

found these



any way to change the default timeout for apache?

after all, everything seems to work, …taking some time, though :wink:
