Seeding large number of torrents: drawbacks?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm currently seeding about 1400 torrents. Are there any settings in particular that I should change to allow for seeding this many at once?

I'm running XP and upped the number of simultaneous connections to 10,000 or something in Windows. In uTorrent, I have the global max connections at 600, 100 connected peers per torrent. 6 upload slots per torrent.

I'm noticing that I haven't been uploading much (MB-wise), despite having so many torrents seeding at once.

Splitting your connection across 1400 torrents could potentially split your total upload speed over FIFTY SIX HUNDRED different ways.

If your internet connection is what I think it is, you will be uploading at single-digit BYTES per second to each peers.

More is FAR from better in that situation.

Until and unless you get a 100mbit upload capable connection (no eastlink doesn't offer it for less than $1400/month) then you should only run 2-3 torrents seeding at a time.
