mailtooo7 Posted December 24, 2008 Report Share Posted December 24, 2008 I have 21 torrents seeding. 6 of them are of large size in like 6 gig. These torrents have 90 peers and only 1 seed which is me. What I'm looking for is a way to change some settings so that I can upload at a higher KB/sec to those peers that have the highest percentage completed, and eventually if they become seeds (100%) they can feed others.If that is not possible, I'd like to get some suggestion on settings that will effect the uploading behavior in such a way that utorrent will upload to those IP's or peers that are sharing the most with others so that overall, if one is getting it from me at a higher rate, then others can feed off him.I have 120KB of uploading bandwidth, if I setup number of upload slots to a higher number than one than it takes the available bandwidth and bunch of people download at 1, 2, or 3 kb rate which takes forever to complete a 7 gig fileThe thing which I've tried is to limit the upload slots per torrent to 1 only, so that whoever one person it is uploading to is getting it at 15-30KB per sec, but the problem I'm running into is, utorrent doesn't necessarily upload to the guy that has most percentage. I would have 40 people that are sitting at 55% but it will start feeding someone at 2%. Is there a way to tell utorrent to give preference to the guy with most percentage compelted, because they have higher chance of becoming a seed and coshare the file. Or limit the time amount it feeds to the guy with 2% so it can quickly go back to people with highest percent completed or who share with others most. To better my chances, I've choked torrents that have some seeds by limiting their upload speed to bear minimum and increasing the upload speed to unlimited and priority HIGH on bandwidth to those that have no seeds and have 90 peers each.Please feel free to comment on any or all ways to influencing the behavior so that it can create more seeds sooner. Also comment on which setting to change or monitor to make sure that people that are being uploaded to are sharing with others and aren't just hording the files, by finishing and then going away forever.
