Higher level servers are used after lower level servers were tried. If the main servers are slow with response that limits the speed and higher level servers don't have enough job to do? By putting astra to main you eliminate the issue. If astra is unlimited then use it as level 0, you can have many servers on the same level. Otherwise increase the number of connections of level 0 servers. If you have multiple level 0 servers make their connection numbers similar because each server is tried before going upper levels. For example if you have two main servers where the first have 10 connections and the second 1 connection then each article which fails on first server will be tried on second too (before increasing level); you can see how having only one connection on second server can limit the speed.agathorn wrote:So I did a further test. I noticed one download that was basically constantly falling back to Astraweb and downloading around 700KB/s. Astraweb was a backup server with priority 1. I went into settings and moved Astraweb to priority 0 making it a non-backup server and instantly my DL rate jumped up to 11MB/s. Changed Astraweb back to priority 1, and the rate fell back to 700KB/s.
I think this makes it very clear that there is something odd going on with servers marked as "backup" or higher than priority 0.
