WolfBaginski Bearsfoot Posted September 14, 2019 Share Posted September 14, 2019 Since I upgraded my connection, a few months ago, I've had about 6 times the internet bandwidth, and it makes a big difference to viewer performance. But the viewer feels greedy: it is frequently using all the available bandwidth. Some high-bandwidth apps have options to set a limit, so I can download things like video files in the background, without affecting routine uses such as web browsing. Second Life isn't a background app, but it routinely uses a lot of resources, such as virtual memory, as well as the internet bandwidth. I know that some of the huge numbers come from multiple pointers to the same read-only address-space, but there isn't the get-out for the bandwidth numbers I see. My brother's been here this week, and every so often he complains that the internet connection is falling over. It's when I am connected to Second Life. I am digging through stuff about controlling things on my computer, and the VDSL modem/router box that provides the connection, but with all the bits and pieces that viewers use, including multiple copies of SLPlugin and Dullahan, it's a struggle. Is there any bandwidth throttle/limiter setting in the Viewer itself, even something buried in the debug settings? Or is the viewer really the tangled uncontrollable mess that I reckon I am seeing?
