For the last couple of weeks i have been trying without success to sync NVTs, but max speed is ~5KB/Sec, and its taking more than 24hs to complete. Is my IP being throttled? I could provide my public IP to admins to verify.
HI. I’m new here and i do also have the Problem that the download rate is max 5KB/s.
This is quite frustrating because an initial Setup of openvas will take nearly a complete week. Is there some kind of initial archive for the feed, scap, cert and data which can be downloaded seperatly ? Perhaps via torrent so the initial part won’t take so long ?
Hi Eero. Thanks for your reply. In fact i can download the Kali iso image with the speed of 10MBytes/Sec. So the connection is not completely bad. It is only the sync with the greenbone Servers which takes so long. The tar.gz files are a quite good idea. It should be a general option to get a place where these archives can be downloaded, perhaps via torrent. This would also take some load of the rsync servers because new setups wouldn’d cause more network traffic. I’m not sure which big archive will be the next. I think the nasl files are finished by now and the cpe files are at the official_cpe_dictionary_v2.2.xml.
hi @Eero, Can you please tell what variable to change for the installation script? @Bond_Bart’s idea sounds as a good short term solution.
As for the speed limit, i have tested directly connected to the router no filtering, everything else is 150Mbit/s just the sync is stuck at 5KB/s which looks like an issue/throttle servers side, for my IP at least.
For those of you getting slow syncs, could you please post which version of Greenbone Openvas you are using and your operating system? And please PM me with your IP address so I can pass this onto the developers to check. Thanks!
We’d like to look into why you are getting slow speeds when trying to do the initial syncs. What version of Greenbone Openvas are you using, which operating system and install method you used, and if you are comfortable with it, you can message me with your IP address so we can check from our end. Thanks!
