Almost impossible to download the SDK

I tried to download the SDK (2.9)  located at https://developer.amd.com/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/   for a few hours on two different computers.

It usually starts downloading at 200K/sec,  about 3/4 of the way. Then it slows down and finally the browser (firefox, latest) gives a FAILED error.

I tried with or without proxy, from Linux and Windows machines, same results. 

Sometimes it starts to download faster, about 1MB/sec, but the same result. It fails a few minutes later.

It has nothing to do with popup, as I already clicked ACCEPT to start the download.

It has nothing to do with my network, as I download hundreds of files from other sites without issues.

I was able to download the SDK eventually, but it should not take 20 tries to download a 100-something-MB file..

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

Thanks for reporting it. As I just checked, I didn't face any such problem and I was able to download both the versions at good rate (appx. 500KB/sec). Not sure why it took so long at your end. Might be due to a network or temporary issue.

I've uploaded a temporary copy of APP SDK here: Dropbox - APP SDK  . In case you face such download issue in future, you may try this link to download it.

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

I am pretty sure the Linux support  of ADL has been discontinued. It would be great if AMD folks can update the documentation to reflect the change. You can use amd/umr - AMDGPU User-Mode Register debugger as a library in its stead. This is a much better alternative in my humble opinion.

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

Is it only me, or the APP SDK really has vanished completely from AMDs site? Please, the life of an OpenCL dev is hard enough already...

APP SDK is still available and downloadable from it's original page i.e. https://developer.amd.com/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/

For Windows, you can also try the standalone installers mentioned on this post: AMD APPSDK for Windows doesn't download

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

dipak​ You are aware that there is no link to the APP SDK page on developer.amd.com? No one can actually reach that page who doesn't have it bookmarked or does not stumble upon this forum thread. It's almost as if it is not meant to be found.

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

I didn't check this page for last few days, so, I'm not sure. As I just checked, the page and downloading links seem working fine. Are you able to download it now?

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

The links you sent work fine. What I'm saying is that go to the home of the dev sites, http://developer.amd.com and try to reach the page you linked. APP SDK is not under "Tools and SDKs", and all the links cached by Bing pointing to "OpenCL Zone" and the likes are all broken. Google does find the SDK when searched for, but I think it should be reachable from the developer.amd.com if I click on "Tools and SDKs"

Re: Almost impossible to download the SDK

I got your point now. Earlier I thought the SDK page was not accessible. I didn't check that home page, instead used the bookmarked link. So, I didn't realize what you meant to say. I'll check with the related team. Thank you.
