erio Posted January 2, 2006 Report Share Posted January 2, 2006 Thanks to Ludde for wonderful client. I wish uTorrent the best, but it seems this client still has a major problem with download speed. I'm sure that it isn't configuration problem. Some very well seeded torrents are constantly better handled by BitComet. With BitComet there's a stable high download speed, with uTorrent "zig-zag" speed graph with significantly lower average.One thing for sure - uTorrent connects to small number of peers (compared to BitComet), no matter how high is the value "max number of connected peers per torrent".I don't know technical details of bittorrent protocol, especially how client choose which peer to connect to and for how long (can client choose the fastest peers?). Maybe slightly different implementation of protocol matters too.Another thing is that upload speed affects download speed in very strange way. It's unbelievable that I must sometimes (when I download several well seeded torrents) limit upload speed to half of my maximum upload speed (16KB/s -> 8KB/s). Could it be explained by TCP overhead only? I hardly think so. I've disabled DHT.These threads describe similar problems, so I'm not the only one:http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=4057http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=4036http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=4005I'm using latest beta.
