uTorrent vs BitTorrent


Recommended Posts


First, sorry for my english =)

I use uTorrent about half year and i very like it. But tooday tried original torrent client - BitTorrent v4.2.2. So what I saw:

down speed in BT - 4MB/sec, upload about 200 kB/sec

but in uT - down 1.2MB/sec, up about 80kB/sec.


Can u help me corectly setup uTorrent, please.

Oh, I tried to read "Mini-guide to help all of you with your speed problems", but it's not for my English language level :(

Maby some one can help me?

My connection is:

down - 51 200 kbit/sec (6 400 kbyte/sec)

up - 5 120 kbit/sec (640 Kbyte/sec)

I have Network OK, and have no any errors at all.

Hmmmm. This is interesting. Have you tried the latest uTorrent beta? I imagine that utorrent needs more time to mature but I didnt think that the difference would be so drastic. Please compare the clients on an equally very fast torrent like a Knoppix ISO.

I had the same problem on my 16/16Mbit and that what helped me:

set in Torrent Options:

Global maximum numer of connections: 2000

Maximum numer of connected peers per torrent : 500

Number of upload slots per torrent: 40

set in Advanced options:

net.low_cpu: false

diskio.write_queue_size 32786

and now I get even 2MB/s both ways.

OK, I tried some fixes with different vesions, but nothing help.

Only 1 version is little bit better than othes - last beta.

When I start it I saw that:


But it was only few seconds :( and after this few seconds download become 1.2MB/s

Anyway beta version is better than 1.3. Some times I have 2 or 3 MB/s. But BitTorrent still show me 4 or 5 sometimes 6 MB/s...
