Downloading Speed CHanges When I Stop Other Files


Recommended Posts

Options - Preferences - Queueing - Queue Settings 



a) Maximum number of active downloads (upload or download) = 15

b ) Maximum number of active downloads = 8

There are 50 files in the uTorrent download list. Only 7 of them are being downloaded (with small speeds 0.5 kB/s to 10 kB/s). But one of them is beind downloaded with the speed of 300 kB/s

The rest of the files are not stopped.


When I stop all of them the one which is being downloaded with the speed of 300 kB/s, the speed of this file icreases to 700 kB/s.

My internet speed from ISS is 8 Mbit. 

The downloading speed increases drastically when I stop other files which are being downloaded with very low speeds in the list. 

Why does this file isn't being downloaded with the speed of 400 to 600 whilst rest of the files aren't stopped? (still continue downloading) Why? and How to fix it?


2) Sometimes vice versa happens.


When I stop other files the download speed of a specific file decreases drastically. Why? and How to fix it?

From the read of it they share the same line so they will share the bandwidth and the one with the most seeding will be the active one is what it sounds like. And when you stop the others the speed increase because there is no other torrents sharing the same bandwidth. Also your ISP doesn't control utorrent speeds that is dependent on the torrent being shared. That's how I see it the more you download the more the bandwidth needs to spread around and the one that is most active will take first in line.

As far as I understand from what you've said;


The files come from the same resource and the resource has an upload speed potential. This potential is shared among those files.

When I stop the other files I use that potential just for that single file so the downloading speed increases.


The downloading speed is let's say 300 kB/s when a, b, c, d files are downloading. Howerver when I stopped the other files the downloading speed is 600 kB/s

so It's beyond the upload potential of that resource.

a + b + c + d = 300

However when I stopped the other files a = 600 kB/s (not 300)
