Change for Optimistic Unchoke Behavior


Recommended Posts

When upload slots per torrent is set to only 1, so long as minimum upload speed per upload slot has been met...

Have Optimistic unchoke (O flag in peers window) only in effect for half of the time at most. The rest of the time, do Tit-For-Tat with the fastest connected peer. As-is, NO Tit-For-Tat is being done! :(

By spending longer in Tit-For-Tat mode, more complete pieces will reach the peer/s with the highest upload speed...so the torrent swarm's available pieces go up more rapidly.

This would be even more valuable in conjunction with reduced per-torrent connections for seeding torrents

(proposed here: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=47523 )

...because it would be easier for the seed to alternate between Tit-For-Tat and optimistic unchoke with fewer connected peers.
