File download script question

software development

#1

I am currently using the GetFile download script from http://www.gowondesigns.com/?page.getfile

I was wondering if this type of script is too stressing on the server or not. It hides the real path of a file, so it uses:

@readfile($file_path);

I am using it for downloads that are several 100MB in size. The largest is going to be 600MB so far.
