How far can SB be pushed in terms of connections on 50mb?

    I'm finding SB quite slow on 50 connections. It takes 2+ days to fast post to a 1 million list of harvested URLS.

    I have a decent connection and a decent PC but I can't find information anywhere telling me how many connections to use for specific connections.

    i'm running on 50mb fiber optic, 3.2ghz quad core and 4gb ram.

    I'm testing SB on a 750k list at 300 connections, 30s timeout, i calculated that it wills till take 26 hours to complete.

    Is there any way to see if I can push it further?

    I'm also using the randomize bloglist setting, will this slow it down? 20 minutes in and it has only posted attempted 10k posts.

    For posting i've decided not to use proxies either. I don't really see a point in using them in the first place. They only slow me down.

    What about websites/services banning your IP?

    As above, getting your home IP added to a spam filter ain't the best thing to do.

    I really don't care if a blog bans my IP. I only post to a domain once too, so they won't ban me.

    Akismet can suck it too!

    I've had my IP on
    Code:
    http://stopforumspam.com
    for running EVO2 12 times at once and it doesn't do anything really.

    Larry, what would your thoughts be for those using a VPS?

    I mean you could take the angle of "Well it aint my IP".

    I'll be honest, I've never really tried posting/commenting without my private proxies on the VPS, so not entirely sure on the risks vs speed increase.

    I mean, one could assume, if you're posting to AA blogs, then it might be ok.

    When was the last time you heard someone was banned for spamming?

    Think about it, banned from what? The internet? The only way that happens is if your ISP bans you.

    This is very unlikely while posting comments. I've probably attempted 5million posts this week alone. There's people out there doing way more.

    Well there's Askimet for a start. This may only be around 20-25% of Wordpress Blogs, but I guess it's a considerably chunk if you're commenting on Wordpress blogs.

    You will always get banned by Akismet using scrapebox unless you use thousands of private proxies. It is pretty much unavoidable. I only look for autoapproves too and akismet blogs don't usually have AA because they use captchas.

    So that apparent 25% are out of my scope anyway.

    Run multiple instances and watch your system's resource monitor in real time (ram, cpu, bandwidth) until you reach a realistic maximum. you should be able to run at least 4 instances with no problems on your setup. be wary of using multiple connections on a wireless router (connect by cable) as the amount of connections will be hard to handle.

    Set timeout to 90, otherwise you lose it!

    I'm finding >300 and >70s to be good settings, another above 300 and the success starts to drop.

    I did some testing last week and 90 seconds is definitely the best time out setting.

    Connections will be simply down to RAM, processor and what else is running besides SB, plus how many instances running.

    Unfortunately the SB Bandwidth Meter doesn't work for some reason.
