FadedAway Posted May 31, 2007 Report Share Posted May 31, 2007 *This is all while just seeding! No downloads are going on in the process*Well... I've just about gone insane from the "tease" upload speeds I get every so often. My problem pretty much is that my upload speeds are being very inconsistent (as the title says). When I start Utorrent my speeds will start going up and usually peek around 80 - 100 kB/s (about a total of 180 kB/s of all the uploads together). Great huh? Yeah well it lasts about 30 sec.. then they drop and drop and drop till they get to around 2 - 4 kB/s and then they'll work their way back up again. Sometimes they'll stay at a -somewhat- steady 20 - 40 kB/s on the main one and about 50 - 60 kB/s total. I go from this:To this (after about 30 sec - 1 min of being up at the high speeds):It doesn't stay low for the most part, it starts to work it's way back up immediately, sometimes staying at 20 - 40 kB/s for a good while (on the top one). Oh and the reason you don't see the top one from the first pic on there, is because it went all the way down to 0.0 kB/s. That's what's so weird.. it doesn't slow down, it just immediately drops after a while. Directly from 120+ to below 10 kb/s!Still though.. Could I not be connecting to enough peers, or perhaps I am and just not staying connected? I've never seen myself go over 20 peers with all my seeding torrents put together. I'll usually connect to about 1 - 7 peers per torrent, when one drops another torrent will pick one up.. seemingly keeping it about 20 peers altogether. Anyhow.. Now for the info!Main uploading torrent: 3.57g24 seeds 37 peersConnected to 3 peersUpload speed 38.7 kB/sPeek 134.6 kB/sAverage 22.4 kB/sI have others seed at about 2 - 15 kB/s here and there. Usually I'll have a main seeding torrent and then a secondary one at about half that speed. They both fluctuate. My main goal is to get them to stay at that high speed I see them jump at every so often (at about 80 - 120 kB/s steady would be wonderful..).Well, I think I've rambled on enough.. so I'll just leave the rest for tidbits of info that may help you help me # Test Speeds: Download Speed: 20383 kbps (2547.9 KB/sec transfer rate) (From a private tracker, I usually DL at around 1 mB/s - 1.75 mB/s on well seeded torrents)Upload Speed: 1511 kbps (188.9 KB/sec transfer rate) # Color of the network status light in µTorrent's status bar: Green# What the Speed Guide shows your settings to be: I've played around with this a lot, haven't really seen much of a difference.. but anyhow my current setting are:Upload Limit: 0Connections per torrent: 500Max Active Torrents: 15Upload slots: 8Connections Global: 750Max Active Downloads: 8# Operating system installed: Windows XP Professional SP2# Security software installed: McAfee Security Center, Windows Firewall, Spyware Doctor.
