Koila Posted April 2, 2008 Report Share Posted April 2, 2008 HI,I will be the first to admit that I am 'new' at torrenting files. I do always seed and don't mind seeding. What I don't understand and have a problem with is upload hogs?? I don't even know if there is a correct term for that.Let me give you some background.I have set Utorrent at a max and min upload and download, on the advice of the the newbie material I read and I believe someone from the forums here. I don't remember. The upload is set to 75% of the download.I have set Utorrent to stop seeding at 1.25 ratio.Yet Utorrent ignores these things.Last time I downloaded a torrent, I left it running during the day to make sure it got the 1.25 seeding, instead of stopping at it .9 percent seeding. Instead of it stopping, it kept going. I got home to find out that it was seeding at 4 (FOUR) times what I downloaded. I don't like that, to me that is bandwidth theft. That is unless I set it to stop there.I am downloading something now, it has only download half of the file - 5GB and yet it has uploaded 11GB. Not only that it is downloading at 13-42 kb/s (it varies) and uploading at a relative constant 52/kb/s.Can some one please help me to understand what is going on.Or at least give me some instruction on how the settings should be?I thank all of those in advance.
