Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Great!

Thats really great!

Because on a P4-2.8Ghz Server with JRockIT and 1GB ram I get funny:

shell>cat /proc/loadavg
63.86 48.41 33.75 1/1320 20071

just because limewire is running ;-)

What is JRockit? is it a Java 1.4 compliant JVM? Does it have NIO?

Also ask your self about why you don't use the Sun JVM for your Linux.

There are some JVMs that are "rocketing" only for pure GUI applications, that handle very littel numbers of active threads, because they compile all the code into native code, but then have a pure and slow memory garbage collector that takes much CPU ressources, if there are lots of memory operations, like in networked applications. Also these alternate VMs often have a slow multithreading support (switching threads is costly).

The performance of LimeWire does not depend much on the GUI, but most certainly on the networking components that DO need a efficient memory management in the VM.

JRockIt is the JVM from Bea, it is certified to be java-1.5 compatible and is heavily optimized for Intel/Linux. (Has NIO)
It can also choose the GC is uses at runtime, and determinds the algorythm best suited for each use...
I use it since it outperforms the SUN-JVM (server) by about 30% (also with Limewire) and as you can see I need every cycle I can get ;-)
Sun client-Jvm does really bad when it comes down to highest load...

I have to admit that I hacked LimeWire to run batched, since it runs on an webserver withought XFree (but a dummy X11), so I start every 500s a new search, wait 200s and start downloading all results.

Seems like Limewire was not designed for this, I end up with thousands of threads and extremly high loads...

No the core was not designed to perform so many searches and downloads at the same time (200 if you download all results!)
So your case is not what actual users of Limewire experiment, because your client is not Limewire (even if it uses its core).

Are you doing that spy on the content available on the GNet, given a list of copyrighted products? Are you working for a company that sends thousands of fake results to defeat the downloads on Gnutella?

Well, I just hacked the GUI a bit - its Limewire with auto-called event-loops (of course through SwingUtilities ;-)).

No, I am just what some folks would call a "script-kiddie".
I just use it for myself, no bad big company behind me paying me $$$ for destroying something. I really like the Gnutella net, I do not want to destroy it ;-)

What I'd like to see in limewire above faster load times and lower cpu utilization would be to allow music being downloaded to be streamed to players like itunes and WMP. (using an mp3 stream or somthing similar)

Unhappy Error message Alerts

Maybe I experince this due to some fault of my own, but it's annoying and I would love a fix someday.
While I'm at school and using the university network connection, periodically the network with bottleneck or get restricted from overuse or administrator action. The problem is that I will get an error message when my hosts all drop out, telling me that a firewall or network is holding up my traffic.
Well be that as it may it's something I have to deal with, but the unfortunate part is that I get not only one of these messages, they begin to pile up fast. Even when LW is running in my dock/background(I'm using Mac OSX{10.3.9}) LW will pop up to alert me of this problem, however the application itself won't actually come to the front, only the top alert, forcing me to manually select LW.
On a bad day, especially if I'm not here to disconnect LW right away, I can get a stack of these a mile high which makes it impossible to access LW since the alerts superceed any other action, meanwhile more messages pop up.
If alerts could pop up not as a dialog box, but maybe in a scrolling window which could be ignored or at least moved, much the way Java errors come up in my browser.

Just my wish.


As an aside, I like that my downloads will continue even when I disconnect from the hosts on some occassions. More support to those who may be stuck behind a firewall or network not of their own would be greatly appreciated. I can't directly connect to my roommate but I can search and come with with results with his files, and then browse his computer.

No probs with my ATl video card. I upgrade to Nvidia and the display of Java apps is affected by my antialiasing settings. The higher the setting the worse the display...on the higest I just get a gray box.

Need to mess with the AA settings alot now :-(

Question Here's an Idea for the next version

How about having the download page and the search page seperate rather than split in half. That would make it easier I would think to scan for what your looking for and be able to more files at one time.

Unhappy Port filtering

I would like to see the ports changed if possible. My ISP, in their infinite wisdom, has started filtering non-standard ports.

This will probably happen to more and more people as other ISP's follow suit. And it does suck. Cable Modem with a download speed of only 3 or 4K, when it used to be 20 or 30k.
