#31 closed enhancement (fixed)

dont DoS the line with icon requests

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.9
Component: Client Keywords:


When connected to a server via a slow line (<1Mbit?) we should just use the local icons and be happy with that rather than requesting lots of blobs from the server.
A standard install may have ~80 commands, each with a 5K icon so this could take up 400KB of bandwidth.
On MS Windows, there are no local icons, so we may want to throttle it instead.

Throttling for MS Windows not done... upgrade your OS or get a better line!
