more speed problems upload & dwnld


Recommended Posts

I swirched to utoorent about a month ago and have looked at most of the topics in depth but nine really explain my problem. It seems to me that when I am using a public tracker ie [tracker name removed for content](<10kb/s), the dwnld speed is much slower then when using a private tracker ie [tracker name removed for content](550kb/s) both the torrents have about an equal number of seeds and peers. (~110 seeds and 39 peers) but for some reason on the [tracker name removed for content] tracker I connect to many more ppl thani do with the [tracker name removed for content]. (50 on TL and 6 on TV). I have used some of the preferences ppl have had success w/ but none have helped. I do have upnnp enabled and am using for my router. But even turning it off didn't help much. With [tracker name removed for content] I get about 30 on most older torrents and about 70-80 on some newer/wellseeded ones. I also experience the same problem with Torrentspy. Just of note I used to get about 30 kb/s on azureus on [tracker name removed for content] and [tracker name removed for content].

Have other ppl been able to attain fast speeds on [tracker name removed for content]? Also are there any other fast sited lik TL?

Merged post(s):

I did some testing and I am almost sure I found the reason why azurues is faster on some of these torrents. I used a torrent that could not connect to the tracker and as a result it did not really matter if it was private or not. What I found was that dht mode in azureus is MUCH better then in utorrent. Without being able to connect to the tracker in azurues I got speeds of about 25kb/s and an upload of about 20kb/s. In utorrent i barely hit 5 and for the most time was about 2-3. My upload was also alot less fluctuating between 2-6 but at most times zero.

I know it has been discussed which implementation of dht utoorrent should use, but I think this is clear proof that for whatever reason, Azureus's implementation is much better and although not official should probably used.

In some later release, Azureus will support Mainline (and thus µTorrent) DHT.

I did a similar test on a dead tracker, and while Azureus couldn't download anything at all, µTorrent could download the whole torrent in 60 kB/s. I would say that the speeds using DHT is dependant on which nodes you are connected to through DHT.
