VERY slow network performance and lockups

Post by KenHorse »

I've used B4A for many years but the latest releases are very disappointing. VERY slow network speeds ( < 2 Mbps) and frequent complete lockups. By lockups I mean the backup simply stops running but the program itself doesn't freeze.

I've sent reports to Softland about the lockups.

I back up to a Synology NAS on my home network (1 gig LAN) and reading/writing to the NAS from the same computer running B4A shows at least 600 Mbps when checking LAN performance with SpeedTest.

I am becoming very disenchanted with B4A (I am currently running PAID 9.8)

Please configure the antivirus to exclude Backup4all from the scanning. It might be the reason why the backups are slower.

In Backup4all, go to File->Options->Logs and history.
Select "Unlimited size" and "Log detailed information" options.
Press OK and run a new backup.
If the speed is slow again, please send us the new backup log file.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
