I am uploading files to Galaxy via FTP. The speed is only 30kb/sec.
Is there something wrong with my operation? or is this just normal due
to Galaxy's work load?
Looking forward to your answers.
You would have to compare this with your regular transfer speed, but
this does seem to be on the low side. Galaxy being busy could have
influence on transfers, but not at the level that you are reporting.
I just ran a test using FileZilla and transferred a 56M file in a
over 2 minutes. My transfer speed varied between 280-460Kb/s and my
side of the connection is known to not be particularly speedy on a
Friday evening (http://www.speedtest.net/ is reporting ~ 5 mbps up).
This is the protocol I am following, if you want to double check your
methods (the wiki has Cyberduck, the screencast FileZilla):
If you connection is simply slow, file compression would be a good
choice (gzip or other, also on wiki above). If a transfer is
when using a desktop client, simply reconnect and then resume the
transfer (you don't need to start completely over).
Hopefully this helps,
