WP-Filebase Download Manager
Open MySQL thread while downloading (6 posts)

    Hello, I was reaching the connection limit on my site and discovered that when downloading a file, wp-filebase open a thread to mysql which doesn't close until the file completes downloading.

    This issue can be duplicated by running SHOW PROCESSLIST; on the MySQL server while a download is occurring.

    This is quite a problem, for if several people are downloading than my site quickly goes offline.

    I tried adding a mysql_close() in the SendFile method before the while loop (line 464), but the thread remained open.

    Please advise.

    Hm, this actually should properly close the connection during download.
    Have you tried to use the link identifier when closing?

    global $wpdb;

    Awesome, that works - no threads remain open while downloading (the code was added to line 450 of Download.php).

    Thank you.

    Hello again.

    It seems that, as makes sense, a php thread is also opened and remains open upon downloading a file. This is a problem because each thread is ~30mb, so concurrent downloads quickly consume a large amount of memory.

    Any workarounds/fixes besides redirecting to the actual file and letting the server take care of sending the file? I've done a bit of research and have yet to find if I can let php take care of sending the file without keeping such a large process opened the entire time.

    memory_get_usage() in Download.php reports around 10mb - quite a large amount. If this can be reduced that would at least be a start. I'm attempting to do so by unset()ing some variables, which isn't helping.
