Topic: Need help configuring file upload amounts over 500 megs

We are using this Mongrel Upload Progress Plugin
http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/upload_progress.html

And all is well with it so far except that the uploads a kinda slow and so far all 500meg file tests clock out and never finish uploading when they get to 98% give or take.

Our upload output from the internet provider is 3gigabits so things should not take an hour, but even still this upload is to slow so far.

I have been researching other methods like MERB and vague attempts at flash upload, but so far this is the only one that fully works with the app right now

If Anybody has some tips PLEASE fill free to share.

Re: Need help configuring file upload amounts over 500 megs

3gbps is an ideal maximum, and may only indicate a downstream speed not upstream or vice versa. With things on the wild internet you may never see that ideal speed. For a baseline try uploading 500MB over FTP and see how long it takes.

That should help determine if slowdown is in your app or on the wire.

Is your app saving the files to disk or the DB?

The 3gbps is up and down, well at least that is what the speed test tells me.

The files go to disk but get referenced to the database.
The upload to ftp is far faster
