Image downloads stop part way through.

Recommended Posts

When I try to look at the "original" version of images I usually find that I can't download the whole thing. I get something between 30k and 60k (or so) just fine, then the download just stops, and never continues. Any ideas what's happening? It is a problem I'm seeing a lot from geocaching.com, and not from elsewhere. I've tried different browsers, and "wget", and they all suffer the same problem.

Believe the max is set at 100k. I tried loading a few travel bug pics in mine and it did the same thing. Checked the orig params of the picture and found it to be at 319k. Cropped it down to about 19k and had no problems. I think it gets real fidgety the closer you get to the 100k limit.

Yeah. The images I was having trouble with most recently are reported by the server to be 92kb and 96kb, so under the 100kb limit, just.

 

The trouble with delivering only part of an image is that it encourages folk to re-try, possibly several times. Images are all-or-nothing content. Send it all or don't send it at all.

This shouldn't be the case. We don't have any limits in place that would affect the downloading of images. Can you provide some examples that are causing you this problem?

Yesterday, the images in this log were giving me trouble. Destination IP was 158.152.11.180. Today, from work, I'm having no trouble looking at them, but the response from geocaching.com is much faster anyway at this time of day...

Well, I can't seem to duplicate it now, but I'll keep checking on it. If you or anyone else notices the problem, if you could post the time of day its happening along with your timezone, I can more acurately check the server during those periods to see if perhaps the load is causing this.

From my system logs, it seems:

 

March 10 12:03:17 GMT looks like one attempt

March 10 22:22:37 GMT looks like another

 

I'm not absolutely certain these were my trying to look at those particular images though.

Ok. Another batch just now, between 14:38 and 14:44 GMT I had the following images stop part-way through:

http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/17917_300.jpg

http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/17917_400.jpg

http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/17702_200.jpg

 

Download proceeds nice and fast til about half-way through, then stalls, and eventually times out...

 

All requested by 158.152.11.180
