    Thumbs down The fastest linux downlaod managers ever

    Hi guys, I tested many linux downlaod managers to find any of it alternative to IDM for windows and I found it, they are Aria2c and Axel.

    I made comparison of various tools and programs and I found the fastest ones did'nt have a good GUI like Axel and Aria2.



    the programs that was used:
    Axel
    Aria2c
    Wget
    DownloadThemAll
    Downloader for x (D4X)


    Same versions in ubuntu jaunty res.




    the ISP speed:
    512 KBit/second

    Actual speed:





    the test URL link:
    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.6.31-rc2.bz2




    Experiment:


    Axel


    How to type command:


    axel -n 20 URL
    -n 20 = Parallel connections (like IDM)


    I typed:
    axel -n 4 http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.6.31-rc2.bz2

    aria2 has a xml-rpc server built-in now that makes writing gui frontends easier. I would like to see a gui for aria2 since it supports bittorrent too.

    I download the file with IDM in MS windows.

    It takes 2:55 minutes

    Axel and Aria2c are the fastest

    Those programs are sh*t when u compare them to Multiget (available on the repos). Trust me, IT'S DAMN FAST!

    I cant find Multiget in the repos... Googled it successfully though. An essential component for me is a timer to automatically start the download at a specific time (my ISP has hugely discounted rates between 01:00 and 07:59). I believe wget is the only package which has this.
