scientus Posted May 10, 2008 Report Share Posted May 10, 2008 This isnt perhaps neccilarily a bug per se but i think it is an error in the way utorrent addresses network shares.I believe when utorrent comes online or asks for network shares it makes a request for each of the torrents that reside there when initilizing there----whenever utorrent does this my computer laggs up so bag its easier to just hard-reboot it. If the share has allready been initialized via network places or even an INDIvidual utorrent initilization then it works fine but when it is making the first grab everything just stops---- i guess it needs some sort of smart thinking regarding network shares-- i can do it manually (turn comp/utorrent, then network share, then) by initiallyzing 1 torrent, then waiting 5-15 sec for it to figure that out and then another and then them all, allways waiting for it to start checking them. guess it needs to do plobes or something---i really dont knowalso on checksums-- would there be a way for the external comp to calculate this--it really drags down the network everytime you start up and have to check them all(makes it slllllllllllllooooooowwwww over wifi)--i know this is far fetched.----OR have an othion to skip check, only do at end or something---when network bandwidth is more limited(i know its made to minimize curropted internet data sent as thats the most valuable bandwidth, but with wifi speed to check it the low possibility of curroption is not worth long strain on the network and the wait-- the downloader will not end up with a curropted file as it checks the haashes--or hashes could be checked when sending a particulat piece, etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
