Slow upload speeds

May 18, 2014 at 9:41 PM
Users of my software (ShareX) keep creating issues telling upload speeds slow with SFTP.

Example issue reports:
https://github.com/ShareX/ShareX/issues/136
https://code.google.com/p/sharex/issues/detail?id=284

I don't have SFTP server to test but i checked codes here:

Stream using 4kb buffer size and it can be the reason why it is slow.

ShareX have customizeable buffer size setting and i'm setting SftpClient.BufferSize but SftpFileStream class not using BufferSize property.

Codes:

TransferData handling progress report, calculating speed etc. and using buffer size set in settings. All other ftp, http request uploads etc. using this same method and those uploads don't have upload speed problem so only one things remains, SftpFileStream can be causing this upload speed problem i guess?

This will be fixed in the next release.
Can you try using the latest beta ?

Good day!

Is this issue already fixed? Just want to know because I'm currently using it right now and still experiencing slow upload speeds.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
