[jira] [Commented] (NET-493) FTPClient: Slow data transfer rate if __bufferSize != 0

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-493?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13545699#comment-13545699 ]

Erik Wramner commented on NET-493:
----------------------------------

I don't know if this is the root cause, but we have had severe performance issues with FTP using commons-net 3.2. A file that normally takes seconds to transfer may take more than an hour. We have observed that often the file is transferred relatively quickly, but then it can take a very long time before the response from the remote server that the file has been successfully received reaches our code (and the logs in commons-net). Reverting to 3.1 solves the performance issues. We are using JDK 1.7_09 on Windows Server 2003.

> The patch applied in [NET-465|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-465] causes a very slow data transfer rate. The line {code}850: socket.setSendBufferSize(__bufferSize){code} in {code}_openDataConnection_{code} sets the buffer size to 1024  by default. With this size I had a very bad transfer rate on windows 7 and XP. The wireshark log shows that each FTP-DATA packet is exactly 1024 bytes long and has to be acknowledged on the TCP layer before the next one is sent. I don't know why, but when I set the buffer size to 0 (FTPClient.setBufferSize) the transfer rate is fine.
