I’ve been tasked to compare the performance of Nextcloud with Seafile. From my preliminary tests with Seahub (haven’t looked at the client/sync yet), Seafile can run circles around Nextcloud - it outperforms Nextcloud slightly when uploading 600 MB JPEGs (Seafile takes 7-8s, Nextcloud 10-11s) and massively when uploading a single large 2,3 GB video (Seafile takes 23-24s, Nextcloud 124-128s). But very surprisingly to me after these results, Nextcloud is faster when uploading many very small files (~300 files with a total size of 9032 KB) - Seafile takes 33-35s, Nextcloud 19-20s.
From what I can tell in Firefox’s network inspector, Nextcloud is winning in this discipline because it seems to parallelize its rather slow requests (100-200ms/req), while Seahub doesn’t seem to parallelize its much faster requests (10-15ms/req) at all.
I have a feeling that Seafile would win easily in this discipline too if I could just get it to parallelize its requests, but I haven’t found an option for that in the docs so far. Is there a configuration option I’m missing?
