Header download stops

Post by bofr »

Hello.
This has been bugging me for quite a while now.

I select "download all headers" for a group. What happens then is that NL downloads a random number of headers, sometimes 1, sometimes several million (almost never), the average number of headers downloaded seems to be about 100 000.

Downloading all the headers for any of the big groups requires sitting in front of the computer and constantly clicking "download all headers".

NL 4 beta 18, newshosting. This has been a problem for about a year now.

Bump.

Am I the only one who experience this problem or what?
It it <<Extremely>> annoying!

A bit more details if that makes a difference.
W2k8 r1
4gb ram
plenty o´ disk

Nothing strange in the log.
Deleting the preferences-dir makes no difference.

Is is possible to disable the turbo-headers to see if that makes a difference?

Sounds like the connection is dropping or is being killed so the downloads just stop.

You can disable the turbo header downloads by setting the "Article Downlaod Allow Xfeat Compression" setting to FALSE in the advanced tweaks section of the settings.
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.

Made some tests.

If I download something while I update the headers, it won't stop. But as soon as the download is over, it stops after a few seconds.

I can get about 20k to 300k headers, if I don't download anything.
I just downloaded some gigs and got over 800k headers, as the download was over, the header download stopped about 30k headers later.
