  • `aria2c` (from the aria2 project) allows. Change -s 4 to an arbitrary number of segments to control the number of concurrent connections. It is also possible to provide multiple URLs to the same content (potentially over multiple protocols) to download the file concurrently from multiple hosts.

    aria2c -s 4 http://my/url

  • jrk's aria2 example is incorrect. -s specifies the global connection limit; the per-host connection limit is specified with -x.

    aria2c -x 4 http://my/url

  • Tests connection speed over HTTP request. Can use a lot of http mirrors of SAME file (Useful for test with Ubuntu mirrors, as example) and the split will be done opening connections in all urls if possible. -s Split connections in N number MAX=16 -j Set max concurrent downloads, must be equal to -s or will be restricted to this number. -x Set max connection per server, recommended to be the same of split. -k Min Split Size, default is 20MB, usefull to really force more splited connections over same file -d Directory to save the "file", in this case, /dev -o Points output to null --file-allocation=none Do not attempt to prealocate the file. --allow-overwrite=true Overwrite to /dev/null. Recommend use "rm /dev/null.aria2" after if runned as root. Show Sample Output

    aria2c -s16 -j16 -x16 -k1M -d /dev -o null --file-allocation=none --allow-overwrite=true <url>
