radx Posted October 28, 2005 Report Share Posted October 28, 2005 OK, I'm sure not so many people have seen this problem before, but here goes.Saturday last week I went down to visit a bud of mine, he told me of this cool new app that his coworkers friend was working on. So he showed me uTorrent. Basically what happened that very day was I ended up installing it as my default client on my server. I ALWAYS leave my torrents running. And so i did the same thing with uTorrent.On Sunday I had a major crash on my server. The entire C: drive was corrupt. Over 250gigs of files got lost. Just when the server crashed i heard how it just rebooted by it self. So I naturally thought there was something wrong with my new Seagate S-ata 250gig drive. Which by the way is only 3 weeks old. So i took the new drive out and replaced it with my old solid Seagate 200Gig drive. (I ran seatools on the 250gig drive, full diagnostic, and it reported the drive was in working order, save for the filesystem that was totally messed up.)The server crashed down on me on both Tuesday and Wednesday. These two times I was lucky though. No corrupt filesystems and no need to reinstall my server from scratch.On Wednesday i tossed uTorrent out from my server and fired up Bitcomet again. Now it's friday and I haven't had one single crash. My server has been rock solid.Now here's what unique about my uTorrent installation:- Windows 2003 Server (not so many people are using it on that I Reckon)- TCP/IP hack done to allow 5000 half-opened tcp connections- Configured uTorrent to use up to 4000 connections in total- Everytime the server crashed I was only Seeding. No Downloads.- Always seeding 8torrents or more at the same time.Programs that's runing along side with uTorrent on my server:- Ventrilo Server v2.1.0- Du-Meter v3.07 b200- MDaemon mailserver v8.1.1- MDaemon Antivirus v2.2.5- Windows Server Update Sevices (w/ Desktop SQL)- DeeEnEs dynamic DNS updater v2.3.30- WebcamXP PRO v2.10- ioFTPD BETA V5.8.5r- Firefox v1.0.7My connection8down 1upLimit connection to 95k/sFrankly, I cant afford trying uTorrent any more right now. I need to burn out most of my stuff and after that I might dare myself to give it another go. And for the record, I can't prove anything. I AM NOT 100% SURE, it might be something else thats causing these crashes. But just so we're clear, when I had my major crash I switched motherboard, hard drives and the newly installed server keept on crashing while uTorrent was active.Tack för ordet!
