What is typical Upload time



  • I have the FOG Server and a AMD Dell on the same switch (100 mb) and I’m doing an upload

    So far its taken 43 minutes with an estimate of 50 minutes to create the image on the server

    is this typical ?

    Depends on the speed of your client machine

    Thanks for the reply it helped!
    Last time I did this it took over 16 hours. I must have down something wrong so I rebuilt the server with the new version of FOG and it seems OK. Now test downloading and maybe get a handle on what snap ins offer

    This is pretty typical. download is always faster than upload. Upload is heavily compressed, you can try adjusting the compression to a smaller number (default compression is 9) and see if that helps, but really you download more often than upload, and the compression is set in such a way to save space.

    Your hard drive, your nic, and even your pc have a role to play in how quickly an image will upload. When I use a Virtual machine to upload images, it always takes longer than a physical machine, approximately an hour to upload about 40gb of data. I would look into some better switch gear, something capable of Gig speeds as well, as Chad noted the speed differences in the two.

    Depends on the speed of your client machine (disk, cpu, network), the speed of your switch, and the speed of your server (mainly disk and network).

    I have a 26GB image that I upload over a 100Mb usb-to-ethernet adapter and it takes about 35 minutes. I have a 50GB image I upload over 1Gb and it takes about 20 minutes.
