expired download links creating new pxt sessions
Last modified: 2008-10-15 11:50:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Expired download links which are returned to robot downloaders are creating a
new pxt session for each url request. This is problematic, especially
concidering we've seen individial robot downloader clients make in excess of 60
thousand requests over the course of a few hours, far exceeding the threshold
that causes the download link to expire.
Please do not create a new pxt session for download urls that are expired.
We also probably should increase the number of download attempts a particular
download link can have before the link becomes expired. The current number of
attempts is set to 4. Yes, that's right. 4.
We probably need to find the average chunk size that robo downloaders request,
divide the average iso image size by this chunk size, and divide the result by
0.8. The expiration threshhold should then be set to the result. This will allow
robo downloaders to actually complete downloading an iso.
will fix this when we re-write the page in java in 420. Don't want to have to
go through the effort of fixing this twice.
