Subject description: Command Line Downloading with Aria2
 

http://linux-blog.org/lightweight-command-line-downloading-with-aria2/

Using aria2, the same file took 10 minutes 32 seconds to complete. Here is the command I used for this:
1
aria2c -x2 http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/opensuse/distribution/12.3-RC2/iso/openSUSE-12.3-KDE-Live-Build0094-x86_64.iso

The -x2 in the above command pipelines the download of the ISO into 2 separate threads. This speeds things up considerably. Be wary of using too many threads though because many websites out there will throttle you down in speed should you open more than 3-4 threads.


uget can be used with aria2 as plugin, providing a faster download time as well.
