Hi! I am currently uploading fastq.gz datasets to the useglaxy.org. My internet upload speed in close to 100 MB/s but the FTP upload speed is 20KB/s, which means I will need weeks to upload the data set. PS: I do not have any other datasets on Galaxy so have not reached the 50GB limit.

How can I speed this up?

Thanks, Dan

Hello, What instance of Galaxy are you using?

Not sure if usegalaxy.org is a valid answer.

Hello, That is a very valid answer :) . I asked because you mentioned your limit is 50 GB, users on useGalaxy.org all have a storage limit of 250 GB, and this confused me.

One thing you could try is submitting files individually to your FTP transfer client, instead of one large submission.

I did that and it did not change the rate. If I submit one file, the speed is 20kbs/. If I submit 2 parallel files, the speed is 10kb/s for each file.

At the risk of sounding like a total idiot: Problem solved... Turns out FileZilla (which I am using for the first time) has a default setting to limit file transfer speed (20 kb/s) and the number of files it can transfer is set to 2. As soon as I changed these ridiculous default settings, my upload speed when through the roof.

Apologies for wasting your time!
