This will be an "Any CPU" .Net build that will work on any Windows OS that has .Net 4 installed on it.
The pooling will be done in the normal fashion, with the existing distribution modes implemented (Eventually).
2011-04-07 Alpha Release
- Currently I am testing speed and x32 / x64 compatibility before applying the Pooling.
- It just Exposes the C Drive
- It allow anonymous full access
- It can run Stand alone (In a console) if the Service installation does not work.
The following speeds have been superseded with this release
- Make the Service start - stop from the tray
- Make the management app actually do something with the config file
- Add user management
- to the Mgt app
- to the service
- Allow different images (taget folder / pools) per user
- Implement the access rights of the users
- encode the config file to stop arbituary changes
- Add pooling algorithms
- Speed Test's over the pool
- Create and fix the client solution
Testing with changeset 63336
- Speed test of just a copy via explorer from Win 7 x64 to Win 7 x32 via NetDrive to the LiquesceFTPSvc without any drive pooling
- The Bad news is that TeraCopy V 2.2b2 only managed 8MB/s which is a bit poor !
- BUT.. Copying to the same drive via the windows share returns a result of 65MB/S in explorer and 74 MB/s with Teracopy.
- Drive to drive copy on the Win 7x32 (The FTP Host) machine give between 80 -> 88 MB/s with teracopy, So the windows share / network Overhead is pretty low and is probably down to good buffer negotiation.
- Trying to play a large file (18GB) via the Explorer Web folder did not work. Via the NetDrive suffered buffering (Probably due to the small transfer packet size out of the service).
- Ran a download test with BitKinex and it was getting 34MB/s, but I am not sure how it integrates into windows explorer to allow MediaPlayers etc.
