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.

Uriah Heep is flying high
Default Uploads failing in ultra peer mode

Hi all

I'm on a 8Mbit ADSL line, giving me 768Kbit uploads. GTKG is running as an ultra peer, but all uploads appear to fail. While looking at the uploads page, I'll see a request for a file, with the range typically 128KiB but often the full size of the file. The progress bar appears but remains at 0%. After around 10 seconds, the upload entry disappears, progress still at 0%. If I clear the "Auto clear failed uploads" box then the uploads pane quickly fills up with failed entries. I've been through the Preferences several times and tried tweaking things but with no difference. In leaf mode, uploads worked.

System details:

0.96.1 stable installed via portage on Gentoo (kernel 2.4.32)
GNOME 2.14.2 with GTK+2
Machine is a SPARC Ultra 60 with 2 x 450MHz CPUs
512Mb RAM

The main share is mounted via NFS and is 10470 files in 45.31 GiB. Uploads preferences page says the last library scan was initiated at 18:41 on 14 Sep and took 5 mnutes. However, the status icons at the top right say that GTK is computing SHA1 of shared files in the background, and another icon says the average CPU usage indicates overloading and SHA1 computation has been suspended. Top(1) show GTK using around 30% to 60% CPU.

If I manually switch to leaf mode, uploads begin working immediately and the CPU usage warning icon goes away. Is the machine just not man enough to be an ultra peer?

Hyper-kun is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

The bottleneck is most-likely the Gtk+ 2.x interface. You should try the Gtk+ 1.2 interface. It looks ugly and cannot be sorted in all places but otherwise, the features are the same.

NFS is certainly another bottleneck at least during SHA-1 calculation. There's a script - actually two a shell and a Perl version - available in SVN that you can use to generate the SHA-1 without gtk-gnutella. You could even run that on the NFS server so that it finishes as fast as possible:

A problem with NFS is, that it may cause blocking which means gtk-gnutella doesn't get sufficient CPU resources for other tasks like network, GUI and SHA-1 calculation. Sharing that many files over NFS might really be a problem, at least if your files are popular because the NFS cache will be trashed due to the random access by downloaders.

Just in case, you can actually compile gtk-gnutella yourself from current SVN:
If you don't want to dump the slow Gtk+ 2.x interface, you could also compile gtk-gnutella topless. The performance difference is extreme, you better hold your jaw tight. You could run this topless node as your "personal" U.L.T.R.A.P.E.E.R.[1] and "file-server". You can't search with that though and there's no web-interface as of yet, just some minimalistic shell interface. However you can simply connect with a secondary gtk-gnutella as leaf to search for files and download them. gtk-gnutella topless actually can download files as well, the down-side is that you can initiate only with a magnet-link. Your leaf can export all results as magnet-links though which means it does work, it's just not very comfortable or user-friendly already, or in other words: work in progress.

[1] Which moron wrote the word filter here? The word ultra-peer has nothing to do with forced intercourse.
