I'm trying to download Grid Control from OTN (Grid Control 10gR2 isn't on e-delivery). The download speed here (European Commission) is always enormously high, but on OTN today it definitely isn't.

After looking around a bit, it seems that is load-balanced over,, and

I'm located in Belgium, and downloading at 2KB/s over each of the servers, except for download-east which gives me ~300KB/s. Also, some pages (e.g. sometimes don't work, returning an error.

Just thought I'd report it here, since I can't seem to find an email address to contact an OTN admin.

    FYI: the error message returned was "An error occurred while processing the request. Try refreshing your browser. If the problem persists contact the site administrator".

    I believed oracle had changed the network delivery provider and caused the issues, I'm from Malaysia, previously I can obtained around 1Mbps download speed at my data center, but now drop to 37Kbps to 47Kbps....
  • I am in the us and it seems that lately any url at is painfully slow and oftentimes it just plain times out or returns an error. I have been trying to use the oracle eclipse update site (which is hosted in the domain space) and it just keeps failing.

    I'm often at 3 kbps for my downloads. 3 days to download a 1.5 gig file.

    I agree with what has been posted in this thread. I reside in India(Bangalore) and have a 2Mbps line. Annoyingly when I download anything from Oracle site, the speed goes to a max of 80~90 KBps and drops down to 12~15 KBps after a couple of minutes. Now this is using a Download manager with say 12 partitions at a given instance. Situation is worse if I use inbuilt downloader of any browser. At times the download stops. It's really irritating that I 've been downloading Jdeveloper for the 6th day. Should not have taken more than 125 mins from any other site.

    Moreover oracle sites take a long time to load up. Sometimes I 've to hit 'refresh' several times for the page to load up. Just to double check that the problem is not because of an intermittent DNS, I used a different one (Google/OpenDNS). Results were worse if not the same.

    Please look in to this matter with a sense of urgency.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm in the US with excellent connectivity and am getting 234KB/sec. Pathetic.
