Delian Posted August 23, 2008 Report Share Posted August 23, 2008 A few facts:-Windows XP (somewhat tweaked)-No firewall-No router-No conflicting programsTo present the issue more clearly, let me post an image.As seen, pieces are getting stuck at high % of finished blocks. This, however, does not directly affect the actual speed or the ability to finish the torrent. When the torrent is about to finish, the remaining blocks of this stuck pieces turn greenish in color and then finish non-the-less (what exactly is this behaviour?). However, this is still annoying, because:-Priority has no effect on these pieces and a lot of such pieces will usually not finish until the torrent is almost complete (and thus I won't be able to open their files until then). -It's harder to complete the first piece and start sharing.-Having less finished pieces makes my client less "interesting" for other clients and so less efficient.My guess would be, that connections bound to the troublesome pieces somehow remain open, preventing other connections from being established and finishing the piece.When I tried µTorrent on other machines, I didn't get the same problem. Also, the problem is the same for all versions of µTorrent. So in the end, this issue may not be due to µTorrent itself, but I'm still trying to find someone, who would be kind enough to help me troubleshoot the program or windows, to get to the bottom of this matter.
