z9999 Posted September 29, 2006 Report Share Posted September 29, 2006 I created a torrent about 5 months ago, and seeded it to completion. Since then I've been PM's several times to help a peer(s) complete and have done so. As it is a very large (4.1GB) file, and I have limited UL speed I have been trying to distribute the missing pieces only allowing the additional peers (9 total now) to assist by sharing what they have while I spend time making just the missing pieces available. I have initiated initial seeding, but am curious if this helps as the missing pieces are scattered everywhere, and not consecutive. I also notice I am receiving piece requests from the peers, and that is what is making me wonder who is in control of which pieces I am sending. I have noticed another problem with one peer who if not receiving any UL drops of and returns frequently until he begins to get data and if sitting idle for a short repeats the sequence. I temporarily implemented ipfilter.dat to block that one peer and found that he possesses over 10% of the pieces needed and after allowing that peer access again, it appears that the pieces he possesses are not being shared. I also noticed that the logger tab scrolls rapidly when that peer is being blocked, so I've re-allowed him but expect I will have to seed the pieces he has received myself. I also notice he receives over 90% of my UL based on the figure in the Uploaded column, which makes me feel sorry for the other peers who are getting very little in comparison, but as he is a peer I feel it necessary to seed to him as well. Any suggestions, or clarification on the Initial seeding being worthwhile in this circumstance?Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
