aragon12 Posted October 2, 2006 Report Share Posted October 2, 2006 hey, I'm using utorrent and I think its great but have a problem regarding spikes in its I/O performance and cpu usage. I found video in windows media player stuttered every couple of mins and after looking into it using process explorer I found taht utorrent was giving me spikes in I/O performance (R+O over 20MB) and simutanouely getting cpu spikes over 80%.This occurs only sometimes but I cant pin down any definate cause i.e. other programmes clashing as it can happen with nothing else running and everything else running. I have set the cache in utorrent to 70MB but when these spikes occur the cache in disk statistics will not show utorrent as using 70MB but rather a combined amount of 20MB for example and the cache will not increase to 70MB no matter how long I leave the programme to seed or downlaod. At other times when i'm having no problems the cache will reach a combined amount of 70MB. I can verify this by looking at process explorer, however I can find no diferences in the total system usage of resources in process explorer when im having problems and when im not - other then the spikes that utorrent is causing.I also use emule and bitcomet for downloading and have no such problems with those. So I'm sure its not a hardware issue, but im stumped! Any help???
