Too many seeds

Eric the Grey

Recommended Posts

I've got a strange configuration problem with uTorrent and I cannot find a solution in the FAQ or the forum search.

Under Queuing, I've set the maximum number of torrents to 6, with maximum number of downloads to 3. However, I tend to end up with 3 downloads, and everything else that is still active seeding. Currently, I have 5 active seeds, with nothing sitting as queued seed.

Is there any way to force uTorrent to keep this setting correctly? I do wish to keep seeds going until they reach the limit (I usually seed to at least 2.0 unless there are no more peers to see to) but I really don't want them all seeding full-time like this because I have several other computers in the house that share my DSL connection.

Are you using Forced start for any of those torrents?

They would be overriding your queued settings if you do.

Also, if they are uploading at 1 KB/sec or less then they don't count against the limit. ...there's an advanced feature you can change to prevent that though.

...there's also a similar feature for downloads going to slow not counting against the max torrent limit. You may want to disable that as well.

What Speed Guide (CTRL+G) settings are you using?

There may be some other things you can do to minimize effects on others who are using the same DSL.
