wazup Posted January 28, 2008 Report Share Posted January 28, 2008 Hi all. I had posted a topic last week with regard to Seeding and misc info.Here goes again, I've been seeding a particular file for 6 Days, 9 hours. I've only reached .645%! I have my Upload bandwith set to unlimited and see that I have the following info on the General tab (snapshot as of this writing):Seeds: 0 of 9 connected (1 in swarm),Peers: 31 of 78 connected (4 in swarm)On the PEERS tab, I have about (average) 10 peers connecting etc. Average upspeed is around 11.5kps. I think I understand that it is the Peer's Speed that regulates the upload rate - regardless of my settings. To me this makes sense.So, what does the above all mean. I've looked at alot of web sites with regard to the above info and nothing seems to be clear. If I google for "in swarM" or anything similar I get (of course) all kins of links to bees etc.Also, what I don't understand is why after 6 days it is still seeding? I don't want to be a jerk and kill the seed, but at the same time, it's chewing bandwidth that I could use for other uploads/seeds/downloads.Also, if I visit TorrentSiteA and a file has 33 seeds, then I visit TorrentSiteB, find the same file and it says that it has 56 seeds. Does this mean that seeds are crossing web sites (domains) for seeding information. OR does this mean that TorrentsiteA has the file seeded by 33 people AND TorrenSiteB has the same file seeded by 56 seeds OR is there one file and it is seeded 99 times?Sorry if this all seems confusing and convoluted, but I'm still new at this and want to understand as much as possible so as not to affend or hurt the Torrent Community.Thanks for any information.Cheers.
