Generating direct download link taking lots of time

#1 Postby naga » Mar 02, 2009 8:34 am

Hi, i have it set so everyone can create a direct download link, but it's taking way to long to generate it (10seconds).

my file server has no load and it's running on RAID10 and it shouldn't have delays.

what can be causing this?

Hmmm...when generating direct link Main server connects to api.cgi on File server and it create subdirectory in /files/ folder, then creates symlink to original file there. Not sure what's slow in this process: connecting to Fileserver or creating folders/symlinks.

Deleting file takes long or not?

well, to fix this problem i restart httpd but then it occurs again after a while.

this is very troublesome, i cant be on my site to restart httpd everytime it fucks up daily.

/etc/init.d/httpd restart is the command i use...

Only can recommend you to lower keepalive timeout a lot. Also there could be some number of connections limit in apache which queue requests. Don't know...I'm not your server administrator.

Hi, just for a reference.
I fixed this problem by not using apache to serve files

cgi bin stuff => apache2
file serving => lighttpd
