Slow upload in 15/15mbit fibre wire connection


Recommended Posts

I recently moved to a new apartment which has installed fibre wire. I gladly chose a speed of 15mbits upload and 15mbits download.

Had some disk overload issues on my quad core, 2GB XMS DDR2 and a 640GB WD which is known for the good performance as a drive so I followed some guidelines around here and gotten it solved. At least I think for now.

I run speedtests and they prove right the 15mbit up and down bandwidth more or less, I managed to max my download speed more than I could hope for, but my upload speed is disappointing, usually around 1mbit more or less(usually less).

I run a test and tried to seed a torrent which I already had, on pirate bay.

Seeds: 234

Leeches: 2635

The max I managed to get was 4-5mbits under a very special occasion such as this.

Any ideas ?

I have forwarded the right port and it comes up green. DHT is OFF and protocol encryption is enabled.


I read somewhere that I had to change the option that is highlighted bellow to solve some of the disk overload errors. I changed the first number from 2 to 6.

You read completely incorrectly. Disk cache settings used to be in the Advanced section many versions ago. diskio.coalesce_write_size is different, and should not be modified for this problem. It's for a separate problem, and shouldn't be increased the that level anyhow.

Are you still getting overloaded disks? What does the Speed tab's disk cache section show?

Thanks for the help, There are no more disk overload errors.

And about my slow upload speed I guess it is not easy to upload at 15mbit speed if there are not enough leeches to download that much. I managed to get 12-13mbit upload while have lots of torrent on for seeding though.

Thanks again for all the help.
