How do I increase the upload speed to my NodeJS application

Posted February 20, 2015 2.7k views

I have a NodeJS server using the middleware formidable (that have speeds up to 500 Mbit/s) application with a Angular front-end to upload some DJ mixes through an interface, I’m trying to get some decent upload speeds with this application, but I’m getting (roughly) an upload speed of 0.79 Mbit/s. This should be able to be quicker, right?

I’ve ran speedtest-cli and I’m getting decent speeds from it:

Download: 49.33 Mbits/s
Upload: 21.36 Mbits/s

I’ve tried to do: ifconfig eth0 txqueuelen 10000, I have not managed to see any differences.

I’m by the way using the cheapest tier, but I’ve read that this should not inflict with the network speeds.

Any help appreciated.

I’d recommend opening a ticket with our support team including these details and a ping and traceroute or MTR between your droplet and the remote server so we can look into it.
