Full queue completion estimate

Post by anathema » Sun Feb 16, 2003 1:24 pm

I didnt really have time to read through all of the suggestions to see if this was suggested, but..

Bulletproof FTP has a thing where it tells you not only the estimated time to finish for the currently downloading file, but estimated time for the whole queue. I reeeeally love this feature and if it could be implemented into smartftp that would be fantastic..Maybe in the stats window?

Seriously, smartftp is by far the best ftp prog ive ever seen, keep up the good work!

this prediction has no real value.
because later the day the speed could fall down to 0.5kb/s. :)

Yes but in real life this never happens
Well, rarely, the sites i download from generally get over 100k/s so while it fluctuates a bit thats fine, but ive seen such a durastic drop.

BPFTP has this and i find it very useful. What if i queue up 100 files and want a best guess on how long untill the whole queue is done? Cant do it without a calculator right now, would be nice to have implemented

would you mind if i tell you even with my 10mbit line on some servers the speed varies from 1-2kb/s to 200kb/s
depending on the over guys in my subnet or the server load.
