Number of peers that can seed


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have about 80 peers for a torrent. 40 of them have 100% of the file.

Why is there only 10-15 of them actually sending data to me ? Why Can't I get the "full power" ! ?

Thanks !

Ok ... sorry ... it's because of speed throttling by Bell Sympatico during certain time period ... I guess. I got speed over 200k/sec but now I can't get past 55k/sec.

I paused one of the two downloads I have and the speed of the one still downloading increased to 55 k/sec.

So the total speed can't get past 55k/sec with Bell sympatico at certain time. I'll do other test at diferent time period tomorrow. I'll let you know of my results.

If everyone was uploading to every peer they connected to (like BitComet sometimes tries to do!), then everyone would likely be uploading at less than 0.5 KB/sec each. Speeds would suck far worse than now, because splitting limited upload many ways = less actual file transfer speed.
