Why DNF is not obeying "max_parallel_downloads" from config file?

Chitholian asked:

My DNF config file:

[main]
gpgcheck=1
installonly_limit=3
clean_requirements_on_remove=True
max_parallel_downloads=8
metadata_expire=-1
# exclude=kernel*

But DNF 4.2.8-2.fc30 in Fedora 30 always uses 3 parallel downloads instead of 8.

My answer:


As far as I can tell, this option max_parallel_downloads has not actually been implemented. I grepped through the installed Python source on my Fedora 30 laptop, and then searched the project’s github repo, and found only the references in the documentation.

I would recommend filing a bug report.
