Wrong statistics while downloading

Asked by UncleBob on 2009-07-22

I'm using LottaNZB 0.4.1 with HellaNZB 0.13-3 under Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron

Each time I'm downloading something, I have wrong statistics displayed. Take a look at the following screenshot:


It shows 71% done (i.e.29% remaining). And remaining 5961MB. Brief calculation reveals that if 5961 is 29%, then 100% is 20555MB, which is about 2 times more than the size of download. When progressbar hits 100%, there's still a bunch of remaining megabytes displayed and remaining download goes very slow.

In general everything goes fine, processing and unraring, but I don't like wrong stats displayed.

I don't have any idea what's is going on here.

Actually it hits 99%:

Hi UncleBob,

there have been some reports of wrong statistical information displayed by LottaNZB. However, it's not possible for us to fix such bugs because our application only displays the information it gets from HellaNZB, which does the actual work for us. HellaNZB has a couple of issues that won't be fixed because unfortunately, it's not developed anymore.

That's why we decided to switch from HellaNZB to SABnzbd as stated in the blog post http://www.lottanzb.org/2009/06/thoughts-about-the-future-of-lottanzb/ . The new version is probably going to be released within a few months.

I'm sorry that I cannot provide you with a quick solution to your problem.

Thank you for the quick reply, at least I won't have a headache trying to find a solution/configuration... Good luck programming new version of LottaNZB!

Meanwhile I will look closer to SABnzbd.
