Installing Axel on CentOS 6

Hello,

Is WGET slow for you ? Did you tried increasing TCP Buffer and still not having the results you expect for downloads ? Do you need resume and multi connection functionality ? The solution is Axel

In Windows we have many download manager softwares that let us download with the maximized speed and resume ability but with Linux there are a few based on CLI as the most are with GUI.

Axel Installation :

Here we are going to install Axel and then explain how to use it.

- Debian Based Distro : If you’re on a Debian Based distributions like Ubuntu you can install Axel easily with apt-get .

apt-get install axel

- Redhat Based Distro : Axel is not included in Yum repository by default if you don’t have EPEL / Remo so you need to install it from scratch via source code or use RPMs which is faster and more easy.

rpm -ivh http://pkgs.repoforge.org/axel/axel-2.4-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

 

Command-Line Switches :

You can have a complete list of command lines if you do “man axel” or “axel –help” but here we mention a few of usable command lines for general usages.

--max-speed=x           -s x    Specify maximum speed (bytes per second)
--num-connections=x     -n x    Specify maximum number of connections
--output=f              -o f    Specify local output file
--header=x              -H x    Add header string
--user-agent=x          -U x    Set user agent
--no-proxy              -N      Just don't use any proxy server
--quiet                 -q      Leave stdout alone
--verbose               -v      More status information

 

Examples :
– Downloads with max number of connections set to 10
axel -n 10 http://cachefly.cachefly.net/200mb.test

– Downloads at 512,000 Bytes/second (500KB/s) and max 10 connections
axel -s 512000 -n 10 http://cachefly.cachefly.net/200mb.test

Generally you can see about %88 percentage improvement in download speeds with Axel than Wget .

 

Hope this article was clear and usable for you.

Let me know your opinions in comment.

Thanks.

HugeServer is partner with Cloulinux

HugeServer now offers CloudLinux!

HugeServer now offers you the latest in virtualization technology called CloudLinux to address common issues that cause instability and downtime when hosting multiple websites on a server. With this new operating system you can crash proof your servers. There were always 2 things that made hosting multiple websites on a server a pain. One was leaving vast amounts of idle resources to guard against a single tenant from over-utilizing the shared resources. You always have to prepare for the worst – and leave idle resources sitting and waiting for something that may or may not happen. Very inefficient. The other pain was keeping one website from causing problems and eating up server resources causing it to slow or worse, shutting down the server. Resources can be drained by any number of problems like a traffic spike, a bug in the website code from one tenant or a hacker attack. Those days are over. Now we offer CloudLinux CloudLinux uses Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology to isolate resources on the server. It prevents individual websites from using too many resources and slowing down other sites, provides better security, and protects servers from issues that drain resources. The technology provides better management of server populations and improves stability and can allow you to host twice as many accounts on one server. Not only that, CloudLinux is easy to deploy and manage since it is:

  • Based on RedHat EL 5.x /  RedHat EL 6.x and interchangeable with CentOS 5.x  / Centos 6.x which means no learning curve
  • Works with all major control panels including cPanel and Plesk
  • Compatible with major hosting technologies like Ksplice and R1Soft Backup
  • Transparent to both the administrator and end user and requires virtually no overhead

If you want to deliver more stability and better uptime to your customers,order cloudlinux by contacting our sales department.

Critical Vulnerability in Windows RDP

Hello All, This is a notice of an active security alert which could pose a threat to your server with operating system of Microsoft Windows. Please see the alert below: “Yesterday, during Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday they announced a patch for a critical vulnerability in Windows Remote Desktop. If exploited, the vulnerability would allow anyone to remotely run commands on your server. This bug affects all versions of Windows (XP – 7/2008 R2) If you have a server or workstation running RDP please patch it now. There currently is no known exploit, but Microsoft believes there will be one in the next 30 days. However, it is very likely there will be something sooner. A temporary fix is to enable NLA (Network Layer Authentication). This would require the attacker to have valid login credentials, however if successfully exploited the remote commands would run as the SYSTEM user and not the user authenticated.” The patch is available from Windows Update and there are manual patches linked below. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms12-020 http://blogs.technet.com/b/srd/archive/2012/03/13/cve-2012-0002-a-closer-look-at-ms12-020-s-critical-issue.aspx   Thank you for your review.
