Lord Alderaan Posted March 30, 2007 Report Share Posted March 30, 2007 µtorrent's disk cache doesn't seem to be able to handle high speeds (more then 2MB/s to 5MB/s) correctly. The cache will fill with downloaded data but won't write out accordingly until it is full. It will then cause a disc overload or slow the torrent down to between 2MB/s and 5MB/s.In some cases stopping and resuming a torrent after a while (before the cache has been totally filled) seems to solve the problem. After doing this the torrent in question and torrents started/loaded after that are able to reach speeds of up to 22MB/s (the ISP/NIC transfer speed and HD write speed start to become the likely bottlenecks here).Reported this bug here not from personal experience but based on observations made by a couple of users of this forum. See related topic:http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=21356 For detailed descriptions of the individual cases.I meant the µtorrent disk cache, not the hard drives own cache.
