t1470258 Posted May 6, 2007 Report Share Posted May 6, 2007 I'm using µTorrent v1.6.1 and this glitch persists from earlier versions...Here's what happened; I found 4gb torrent of the same content yet different packages (chunk size, etc.) from various sites. I downloaded it from the most active one (a) & decided to seed within the least seeded one (b). Because of chunk size difference & change in included minor files, it has to redownload 2mb of 4gb from (b). And here's the glitch...It shows hundreds of ratio based on 800mb-upload/2mb-download/4gb-seeded. And it's increasing as I'm seeding more. One may say 'of course it should be due to 800/2' but this isn't the case if you only add a new seed where ratio begins from 0. But due to previous logic that ratio should be 800/0=∞. Of course the later example is unlogical yet the earlier one which tries to reach infinity is accepted OK by µTorrent.In summary:if it was download: up=800mb down=4000mb seed=4000mb ratio=800/4000=0.2if it was new seed: up=800mb down= 0mb seed=4000mb ratio=800/4000=0.2in this situation : up=800mb down= 2mb seed=4000mb ratio=800/2 =400One may also say 'why not delete+reopen the same torrent so that the ratio fixes'. Although this is a valid workaround, it doesn't justify this glitch... In a case like this, I suggest ratio should be calculated with the math uploaded/(downloaded+availableseedsize)=ratio in cases where download<>seed which results 800/(2+4000)~=0.2. The result is totally acceptable compared to ever increasing ratio of 800/2=400. Thanks... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
