U torrent 2.2.1 Preferences

Recommended Posts

Hi Mike:

 I've begun been seeding my downloaded torrents for the past several weeks for 12-13 hours daily.  I'm running 19 at this time. Problem is that downloading slowed down a lot.  In addition, with all the seeding I'm doing, I have yet to reach a 1.0 ratio.  I am building up lots of points though.

Check your bandwidth allocations could be one is set higher priority causing the other to slow down. Also if there isn't alot of the files to download it will switch to uploading speed. So look at your settings to see which has more allocations.

Here"s what I got for Bandwidth allocations:

Maximum Upload Rate  14

Alternate Upload Rate When Not Downloading is not enabled

Global Download rate   2329

Global rate limit options    Apply rate limit to u TP connection

Number of connections   Global Number of connections  200

                                              Maximum number of connected peers per torrent  257

                                              Number of upload slots per torrent  14

                                              Use additional upload slots, etc is enabled

How did you determine those figures? Also, 14 kB/s for upload seems very low.

Have you tried the defaults to see if that improves things?:

Hi Again Mike:

As you have probably guessed, I'm not to savvy regarding settings.  I followed the advised bit torrent settings from TD and that's about it.   Is the setup guide the option to use for setting defaults?

Ignoring for the moment that 2.2.1 is not supported for security hole reasons, your settings have at least one automatic fail in them. Having the per-torrent connection limit above the global connection limit.

I used the setting in the set-up guide in the options list.  

How can your Maximum number of connected peers per torrent be 257?

The Setup Guide maximum figure is only 125 for upload speeds of 10 Mbit/s to 100 Mbit/s.

Choose Your Upload Speed from the drop-down menu, and you'll see the Bandwidth Configuration recommended figures.

If you enter values higher then the recommended ones, then you must expect problems.

I ran it twice and these are the results.

Great. So now you know the values to enter (although where you got 257 value from when the suggested is only 125 maximum is a mystery).
