Make Upload > Download Speed?


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to get the upload rate greater than the download rate?

Once a few pieces have downloaded and I have something to share, I want to limit the download speed to less than the upload speed to share what I have to more peers faster than I download. The problem is that the limit on the download seems to affect the upload too. I assume this is due to the way pieces are traded - I don't want pieces fast so I don't send them fast.

Is there a way to force transfer at full upload rate regardless of download rate - assuming plenty or peers want my pieces?

Or a way to pause download of an incomplete torrent but still upload.

This is to increase my share ratio during downloading from private ratio monitoring trackers.

Well, you can setup the Scheduler page in Preferences for seeding-only... you can also setup Queueing page in Preferences for "seeding tasks take higher priority"... you can also set the files to "do not download" after downloading a bit of it to only upload.

You'll see these pre-formatted and logically laid-out arguments against many "true" fallacies commonly-accepted today if you browse here long enough http://azureuswiki.com/index.php/User:The8472

What he says about private trackers is relevant here. But basically you'll want to choose any of the three options I mentioned above.

Cheers for the response.

I agree with everything in that private trackers rant - as I'm mathematically minded I've always considered ratio enforcing fundamentally flawed. I only use private sites when I can't find the stuff anywhere else.

I want a solution for the exact opposite problem. How do I get my Download speed to be greater than the upload speed?

Before I updated to the latest uTorrent, it was fine, but now it seems that my uploads reach up to 150 kB/s whilst my downloads dont surpass 50-60 kB/s.

I have a 1.5 mBit cable connection and my settings are following;

Upload Limit: 186

Upload Slots: 8

Connections: 100

Connections Global: 300

Max active Torrents: 8

Max active Downloads: 6

I dont know what else you guys might need. I'm a total noob when it comes to technical issues with internet services so I would really appreciate if the replies where kept at a basic, basic level.

Also I apologize for the repetition of this particular topic, but I have yet to find one thread that I, either, understand or the thread-starter stuck around long enough to hear the answers. So again sorry, and thanks in forehand for all the replies.
