Global Queue is crashing
Posted 19 September 2003 - 06:29 PM
It's not a problem of high number of threads.
I'm using 6 threads (2 thread per site) and I have the bug. I've told you to try with 60+ threads to have bug in a SHORT time. So, stop tell me it's not a normal way to use 25+ threads because it's stupid to use 25+ threads !!!!

I have used smartftp for a long time with 6-7 threads at a time and NEVER had a crash.
Maybe it is an issue with SmartFTP but without really easy reproducable case or some pattern it's hard to fix it.

Just enable the "Split Folder Contents to Separate Items" in tools -> settings ->Queue, and then connect to a linux distribution site and try to download the distribution (I used redhat/fedora mirrors).
I was able to reproduce the crash consistently using 10 and 5 threads (doesn't seem to matter how many threads, I think it's the amount of entries in the queue and not relatedc to the threads?).
A thread startes enumerating the directory contents, and after a minute or so of this, poof, it's dead.
