#573 closed defect (worksforme)

big downloads fail

Reported by: Eche|on Owned by: zzz
Priority: major Milestone: 0.9.4
Component: streaming Version: 0.8.11
Keywords: Cc:
Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no


The famous "local loopback" bug.
Since 0.8.11 (AFAIK) I cannot fetch big downloads anymore via outproxy.
Setup: router with 0.8.11-17 (currently), squid3 on same router, server tunnel on that router pointing to squid.
Client outside, ssh to the 0.8.11-17 router with SSH tunnel for port 4444.
The way is:
client - SSH tunnel - server port 4444 - server I2P router - server false.i2p service - squid - Internet.

But until 0.8.11 I could fetch files in 100,200 or even 1 GB size with speed >100 kb/sec.
Now it starts fast, after some time (10 sec, 1 min, 2min) it stops and waits for some time (1 min or even more), sometimes it breaks. Sometimes it gets up speedy again and stops again.
It is not really possible to get any bigger files with this bug.

I can't think of any change recently (.10, .11) that would have made things work worse.

It probably will not help, but would you please retest with 0.8.11-20 or later. -20 contains the gunzip fixes:

sorry, upgraded to 0.8.11-25-rc and it still has the same effect. The machine itself is not under load, still in startup phase - no real load as explanation for this behaviour.

IIRC you noted, sponge saw this a long time ago already.
IMHO not a new bug, but somehow triggered with latest changes for me.

@echelon please update this with recent test results. Is the current release better, worse, the same?

Just testing with 0.9.2-13.

The so called "local-loopback" tunnel setup does look fine.
Fetching a 233 MB file with 240-330 kb/sec currently.
Speed goes up and down in that window, but no more 1+x minutes delay in between.

Fetching big files via I2P from false.i2p is another topic. And horrible broken, sorry.
It breaks after 3-10 MB most times.
