Cache flushing while downloading (possible connection with streaming)


Recommended Posts

I have had this problem for a while but I haven't found one post relating specifically to it and I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one experiencing this. I'm using 3.3.2 build 30067 but I'm pretty sure this was in earlier builds of 3.3.

The problem: While streaming a file it will correctly download the needed piece but then sometimes leave it and possibly several other pieces in the cache. This causes the stream to wait unnecessarily for those pieces. Worse still, the pieces that have completed get sent to the disk in perhaps a random order and not in the order they are needed or were completed, meaning that even wishful thinking that reaching cache capacity would trigger the right piece to be flushed, is pointless.

The time it takes for the piece to finally leave is normally a few minutes.

Obviously this is very annoying while streaming a tv show or movie.

I'm not 100% sure if this happens when not streaming but frankly then I wouldn't care.

Hopefully somebody out there knows what I'm talking about and has a solution.
