Just discovered this tonight and I gotta say this is pretty cool software. I made a new virtual machine with ubuntu and ran the Docker commands in terminal. It was all surprisingly easy to setup. I had to change virtual box's network adapter settings to "bridge mode" instead of NAT. But that was just about the only tweaking I had to do. Very cool app!
I'm running my VM from a Samsung T5 SSD with 250GB of space reserved for caching (for now- just to test). One thing I'm noticing is when caching Xbox One game downloads, the initial download is super slow. The 1st time I get speeds like ~50mbps and then subsequent downloads are at 250mbps. Is there any way around this? Without caching, my download speeds are ~250mbps. I get that overhead is to be expected, but the initial download is like one-fifth my normal speeds. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
Running my caching server in Ubuntu (newest ver) through a VM (VirtualBox, newest ver). 2.8ghz i7 7700HQ with the VM getting 2-cores and 4GB of RAM. Speedtest from within the VM shows 400mbps down. On host (Windows 10) machine it's 850mbps.
