Windows Client downloads something from nginx for Windows is too slow

Hi, all.

I am a newbie. I am using nginx for Windows to host static big files. I
find out a strange problem. When Windows client downloads files from
nginx
for Windows server, the download rate is very very slow. The files are
bigger than 200MB.

Network: 100Mbps LAN

Server SIde: Windows XP 32bit, nginx for Windows, I test 1.0.15, 1.2.4
and
1.3.7. They are the same.

Windows Client Side: WIndows XP 32bit, Firefox, IE, Chrome and curl are
the
same. The download rate is not more than 300KB/s

Linux Client Side: Linux, Fedora 17 x86_64 and Ubuntu, Firefox and
Chrome
and curl are the same. The download rate are more than 8MB/s. Almost
10MB/s.

The same network 100Mbps LAN

Server Side: Fedora 17 x86_64, nginx 1.0.15

Windows Client Side: WIndows XP 32bit, Firefox, IE, Chrome and curl are
the
same. The download rate is more than 8MB/s. Almost 10MB/s

Linux Client Side: Linux, Fedora 17 x86_64 and Ubuntu, Firefox and
Chrome
and curl are the same. The download rate are more than 8MB/s. Almost
10MB/s.

It looks quite strange. I just use the default configure file for nginx
and
put the files into nginx root directory. I do not change anything. I
checked HTTP Header. I try to change Firefox user-agent on Windows to
Linux
edition. It could not change download rate, still very very slow. I try
to
use Apache on Windows to host the files. The download rate is normal,
about
8~10MB/s.

How could I debug the problem? Which logs and configure files should I
provide? If you have some good advices, Please tell me soon.

Thank you

Thank you, Sharl

I think the problem should be impossible, however it is exactly existed.
I
test nginx for Windows on Windows Server 2008, and the client side is
Windows 7. In the same 100Mbps LAN network environment, the download
rate
seems to have a little improvement, about 400KB/s. It is still very
slow.

I tried to reinstall new Windows. There is no change on nginx for
Windows.


have you tried looking at the network layer using tcpdump/wireshark to
see the connection properties? such as mtu, fragment packets, window
size

I guess the problem come from buffers.
For big files, using asynchronous serving is recommended.

Take a look at:
http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_core_module.html#aio
http://wiki.nginx.org/HttpCoreModule#aio

You needed specific configuration for your specific usage with specific
requirements.
Why should that become the default?

Keep it light and clean for the most common usage: serving lightweight
files, as every standard web page should be.

Thank you, B.R.

I add output_buffers 1 128k option into nginx.conf. It has a great
improvement. The download rate raise from 400KB/s to 4~5MB/s.

I think the problem may affect all version nginx on Windows. Should it
add
output_buffer option into nginx.conf by default?
