With great appreciation to Jimmy who has kindly offered the use of his servers, JDast now does have default upload testing. All you need to do is make sure the FTP Server field is set to "Default" and the rest is done for you.
Although we do now have a default upload test server you can still use your own servers for upload testing, just enter your info as normal
Upload Testing ON / OFF
Turns on and off the upload testing.
Use Default Servers
A tick box to choose whether you want to use the donated upload testing servers or you own.
Here you enter your FTP server address.
Your user name.
Your password for the host server, the password is encrypted before being held in the .ini file holding all your settings.
Test FTP - Button
After you have put in your FTP address, user name & password you can test if a connection is able to be established by pressing this button.
FTP Upload Location
This is so you can direct you upload file to a separate folder on your host server, handy if you are using the same server as where you have a web site etc.
Sometimes there can be dips or spikes at the very beginning of the test. This can be due to many reasons, this setting will "clip" off the beginning of the upload data stream to remedy this situation.
The duration that you want to run your upload test for.
I would suggest a reasonable time for this setting is about 5 - 15 seconds (what you set the "clipping" value to will also affect how low you can set the test duration and still get a reasonable result).
Multi-Threaded Upload testing
You can only use multi-threaded upload testing if you are using your own servers to test to. This is because we have found the need to protect our servers from high numbers of simultaneous connections from many people using multiple threads each.
If you are using your own servers and are sure you have problems "maxing-out" your upload during tests then you can try increasing the upload threads.
