why do I download from only some of the peers?


Recommended Posts

Thnx for the fast answer.

Added the "relevance" column, and as I only have around 5% done, almost all peers have a relevance of >0.

The problem however, is that all peers that I dont download from has this flag:

"d = Your client wants to download, but peer doesn't want to send (interested and choked) "

So yet again, why? Is this b.c their max upload slots has been reached?

and also, many peers have the:

u = Peer wants your client to upload, but your client doesn't want to (interested and choked)

and why is that?

I set my max connections to 500, max uploads to 500, max per torrent to 500...

What to do?

and also, Im on 10/10mbit so no problem there...

... actually BIG problem. :( Use the presets please as a baseline. Or if they cause troubles at least glance over Switeck's numbers @ http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=34259

D means they're sending yup, and a common reason for d is no more slots ;)

and U means you're uploading, and u means the reverse is true from above, YOU are the one without any more slots.

OK, sorry yes, as a test, theoretically you have those 500 slots to use to upload to people. On THEIR end the same would need to be true 1) you need to have something they want and tell YOU they are interested (the first part). Many times people set their uploads too low on too many peer connections and they see lots of K peers, which is also bad.

You're not uploading to a lot of peers at once for the same reason.

Internet networking cannot handle everything happening at the same instant.

Better and quicker to upload in bursts to different peers.

The faster your connection, the longer the bursts...and to more peers at once.
