PlasticSCM Speed Tip

We use PlasticSCM for Rust. If the repository wasn’t 30gb and I didn’t have to teach people how to use it, I’d probably use GitHub instead.

Downloading 30GB from our PlasticSCM server was slow. Really slow. So here’s a protip.

Find your client.conf file – usually in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\plastic4. Open it, scroll down to

<DownloadPoolSize>1</DownloadPoolSize>

and change it to

<DownloadPoolSize>16</DownloadPoolSize>

Now you’re downloadING at 200mbps. Cya.
