Hi, I'm at the moment testing a one2many task to push a video file to a client pc. The file is 350megs and it looks like the transfer is proceeding. The issue I am having is with the speed. In resource monitor I see the throughput running at about 32kbytes per second. That is really slow. If I run speed test on that client computer (while the transfer is ongoing) I get 61Mbits per seconds (a bit over 7 Megabytes per second).
Why is the transfer from the logmein server so slow? Can I speed it up somehow? Is there a transfer speed setting?
@Daver99 You can toggle the compression settings within LogMeIn by going to Preferences and then to the Advanced Settings tab. By default, 'Best' will be selected, but there may be file transfer speed improvements seen by switching to a different compression setting.
Hi Ash, I did already set it to fast, but no practical change has been seen. I can't imagine why the logmein cloud servers are sending out at roughly 8kbytes per second. Someone needs to turn the knob a little to towards "full blast". A ten hour download is simply not practical. My users are all on laptops that come on and go off for an hour at a time.
This is a test of the system, just going to the laptop sitting beside me. I can get 7 or so megabytes per second from most common internet sources (e.g. google drive, our cloud based ftp site) We are in Vancouver
@Daver99 We would want to test with the LMI Central services specifically. This is not related to your ISP or local network, as those look to be pretty fast. Please test the Central connection to a different PC on a different network to rule out the client variable. Feel free to call into support if you'd like a hand.
I retested locally this morning and now things are running at full speed. Nothing has changed on my side. I simply re-ran the same plan and now I am getting 4megs per second.
?? Not sure why the hamsters were so slow yesterday ??
