We run Sonatype Nexus Repository Manager OSS 2.14.13-01. We noticed recently that the download speed of artefacts is ~2 times slower than putting the file directly under an HTTP server (e.g. Apache). Interestingly, this 2 times ratio was confirmed from many locations. In one location for example, we get 5 MB/s download speed via Nexus and we get 10 MB/s by downloading the same file but from the same machine but directly under Apache htdocs folder.
Anybody has an idea why we have this factor 2 ratio? By searching and googling I didn’t find any download performance issues for artefacts.
Checking the performance of the machine, the CPU usage is very low and the network is not limiting anything.
Any help or support is welcome
