Downloading stuck at 99%
« on: March 26, 2011, 11:09:43 am »
Sometimes when downloading, it has a couple of files in a collection, where the last few articles cant be downloaded. No matter how much retries, usually requires multiple Alt.Binz restarts before it finally works.
Now I know this bug has been reported earlier, but I have an actual log file now.
Unfortunately due to the rules here, I can't post the actual log file here, so I'll send it to Rdl in a PM, including a link to the 2 NZB's.

Forgot to mention, Auto Shutdown was turned on. Perhaps that has something to do with it, because this problem never occurred when I was downloading over day (as far as I know), but when downloading overnight with auto shutdown turned on I usually wake up finding my PC still running...

Retry count? Retry delay?

Retry count? Retry delay?

Connection options:
Max download speed: 1600 kb/s
Global connection timeout: 30 seconds
Delay between connection retries: 10 seconds
Xpat connection timeout: 300 seconds

[423,430] Article not found / [502]
Retry Count: 0
Delay between retries: 5 minutes

Connected while Idle: Off

I noticed similar problems and it has nothing to do with retry count.

here is the scenario to reproduce it (using ssl and not connected when idle):
- disconnect all connections and add one collection
- pause all collection in queue
- reconnect by pressing the connect button
- unpause one file or collection

alt.binz will stall and not connect anymore until you reconnect using the connect button (connecting fails every time).

This happens automatically when u need a par2 file and there are no other active downloads anymore
alt.binz will then just sit and not connect while trying to get the auto unpause par2 file
This happend to me as well.

Either restarting or pressing the connect button will solve it.

I think it's related to this (if it's ssl connection): https://www.altbinz.net/forum/index.php?topic=4832.0

Could be, but I think it's deeper. I've had this problem for a couple of versions now, just don't know when it started. I think it's just a coincidence that it happened again right now with this SSL problem.

SSL bug which was fixed in 0.37.2 can result with very high probability in long runs "stucked download"

Not yet, need to clear some disc space first, than wait for a good release of something big I'm waiting for. Even than it can't be guarenteed that the bug is fixed because it seems to appear quite random... But we'll see.

Alright, I have a queue with a collection of 12.7 GB and 1 of 4.3 GB, so a total of 17 Gb, downloading to a partition with 33.7 Gb left with Auto Shutdown on. I'll use only the SSL lines and put the normal lines to disabled. (Download is young so I won't need them). Tomorrow morning I'll know the answer ;)

*Drum roll* Succes! Checked my log files and not a single time of the connection breaking, my PC was off when I woke up (so it wasn't stuck) :D
I guess the bug is fixed :) If not, I'll just make a new topic ;)
