I wasn't sure if I should post here or in the 4.11 beta posting but this is in a sense a continuation on from earlier. The difference is that I'm using 4.11.0 Beta & in a new user account with about 500 odd shares. Java 1.5 is activated for Tiger 10.4.5

I ran LW yesterday & it was fine. Today I switched over to it after leaving it running & found it had just started to breakdown in operation. I quickly took some snaps & ran the console report. I have included the times of day. I'm guessing I ran the Console about 1.46 pm

The reason I switched over to the other account is I found my system had become very sluggish. I thought perhaps it may have been related to converting video overnight. But ... as you'll see it didn't seem to be the case. The images below show the short time span that LW took before it froze. In fact it froze after I tried to close the console window (I had turned the reporting off.) I eventually had to force quit LW. Even after that the system was slow until I logged out of that account. BTW I was not downlding any files, uploading one. 2 or 3 were attempting to connect for downld. 48 incomplete files.

I had an external 250 GB Firewire drive connected which was sharing about half of the shares. Do you think this might be related?

I'm not sure if this is relevant but I also made a note of disk activity.

limewire 4.10.9 wants to download to many files at once.
Hi, I am a Shareaza user who is seeing what I feel is a problem with limewire

4.10.9 & 4.10.9 pro. So far this is the only clients that I have seen this

problem with, so I don't feel it is a problem with shareaza I am

sharing a lot of old time radio shows. I don't mind people wanting to

download all the files at once. But because I have a small upload connection,

I am only allowing people to download one file at a time. The first time a

client program asks for a second file to upload and my program says (no only

one file at a time), that should be it, the limewire client now knows. But

what I am seeing from limewire 4.10.9 is they keep asking for the other

files, over and over at a rate of once a second! Right now I have two users

doing this, they have been doing this for the last day or so. I am starting

to think about blocking them, but I don't really want to do that, as I think

it is a problem with the client.

Thanks for reading this.

I have seen this on BearShare uploads too. It doesn't appear to be harmful but
there's no point in trying to open extra streams to BearShare either.

Hmm, LW would normally consider that as harmful to the network to be making repeated requests in such a fashion. If that's the case then LW seriously needs to look into it. Thanks people for your feedback for the LW devs. Though I wonder if it's a client to client issue rather than LW to LW issue. All the same, it's an issue.
