discodoc Posted April 2, 2008 Report Share Posted April 2, 2008 Improve downloads by prioritizing upload to super-seeders.Often, there are only few (or just one) seeders with a very limited band-width. This is especially true for files that are not the latest movie hit or latest pop-single.In these situations, if a high number of peers connect to those limited seeders, the overall download velocity is quite low and gets lower with more leechers. [basically, all leechers stay at the same downloaded percentage of the file and all try to download the remaining bits from the few seeders.]I therefore propose a more advanced mechanism:1.) uTorrent should determine which leechers have a high bandwidth and behave like superseeders (should be possible for other uTorrent clients)2.) it should preferentially select 2-3 such super-seeders and upload preferentially the file to these3.) the remaining leechers will download the torrent from these super-seeders.
