Speed to upload photos to Piwigo.com hosted?

Hello,

Starting to test piwigo.com hosted now. Uploading seems slow, minutes per one 5 - 9 MB photo.
I can "mass migrate" over the time but out of curiosity

Q: What is the average uploading speed?

Q: Would it be faster if I would use Lightroom plugin or FTP instead of Web uploading form I was using?

Some of the "third party" web hotels are saying "20x" faster experience. I would still rather use Piwigo own  because of many reasons.

Hello
the speed depends on your internet speed, the one from your ISP to Piwigo.com and the piwigo.com servers
I know for sure it doesn't come from piwigo com hosted by OVH a very reliable webhoster ; you may be from a very distant/isolated country, or your internet bandwidth is low in upload as many domestic connections
check from your work, or from someone else in your family... (not your neighbors since they probably have the same bandwidth limitations)

I fully agree with flop25, and I add:

There is no FTP on Piwigo.com (or only for very specific occasion, like initialization). I don't think Lr will be faster than web form.

If you have a very fast internet connection (which is not the case here if it takes 60 seconds to upload a 5MB photo) we can adjust the chunk size of upload from 500kB (default) to 5000kB. On my personal fiber connection, its 2x faster this way.

Re: Speed to upload photos to Piwigo.com hosted?

Thank you for the replies.

I have some sort of business full rate connection where promised values are 24M+ download and 1M + upstream. I did a test now with Orkla and it gives me 16M download and 1.1M upload. Must say that is not  much.

Comparing to uploading into Onedrive for business this lags behind. Naturally download numbers means nothing when uploading. I would expect with the 1.1M upstream to get about 15s per picture.

As I'm still in trial phase I don't expect any supportive actions to be done.

Hi Hsphoto,

I just made the test with a trial account on piwigo.com. I uploaded 10 picts (total 50MB) in 10 seconds.
My upload speed is arround 200M.

In my opinion, the bottleneck is not the piwigo's servers but your upstream link. A quick calculation in your case : 1M (bits/sec) and 5M(Bytes) picture it can take 40/50 sec per picture to transfer.

The solution would be to reduce the size of you picts...

Hi all,

I just did a test in the office with 90Mbps upload speed and I can confirm that speed was extremely good. So the problem is "last mile" problem like it was assumed here, not in the piwigo server end.
