Subject [GitHub] ant pull request: increase buffer size to improve transfer speed
Date Thu, 23 Apr 2015 21:05:40 GMT
Github user pkures commented on the pull request:
    I was thinking along the lines of ... the transfer speed is 1MB/s but theoretically on
1 Gbit network you should see up to 100MB/s transfer speed ideally, so I tried to increase
100 times. It's about how often Java gets a chance to process InputStream data and how many
of those 1K packets arrive between OS context switches. 
    Increasing the buffer size from 1K to 100K increased the transfer speed to 75MB/s (very
large file), so the buffer size really does matter a lot. I can look how much the InputStream
read method reads in one call on average - this should tell us how large the buffer needs
to be for gigabit network. I can also test over our 15Mbit link, but I'am afraid that's slowest
connection I have available except maybe cellular internet, hmmm, maybe I can test that also. - Reads up to len bytes of data from the input stream into an array of
    In my experience it means that on slow network the only risk is that the excessive buffer
space will be wasted for the duration of the transfer. As it will not wait for the buffer
to fill.
    But this is really getting little bit complicated for my time constraints :-) Maybe just
adding the attribute to override the defaul buffer size is not a bad option after all.
