Conservative Settings Chart (Alternate Speed Guide for uTorrent)

Recommended Posts

Did you try the link at the top of my chart SHOWING where the numbers go?

Do you know how fast your connection is both down and up?

"i have a connection of 512kbps."

512 kilobits/second DOWNLOAD?

What is your upload max? That's the basis for setting uTorrent's settings.

Some torrents are slow, but even still if there's a few seeds you can almost expect to get at least half as much download speed as upload if uTorrent set correctly.

I don't know my max upload, just the download. How do you recommend setting based on max download speed...?

Thanks a lot for this table! This helped me out of the problem that the speed (up+down) dropped to 0 every few minutes :D

It's now fully stable ^^

0.26 megabit/sec upload speed is very close to 256 kilobit/sec upload speed settings on my chart.

That's what I recommend you use.

If you want, it doesn't hurt others much to increase max active downloading torrents to 2, since this won't increase the number of people you're trying to upload to at once. (...because max active torrents is only 2.)

Having too many upload slots (per torrent times active torrents) means your upload gets split so thin that nobody is getting "useful" speeds from you...peers will refuse to upload back to you and much of what you upload becomes wasted data. :(

Ideally, each upload slot needs at least 3 KiloYTE/sec upload speed on average. But on slower connections, 2 KiloYTE/sec upload speed on average per upload slot is ok. Just don't go below 1!

hello, i did everything the chart says, when i first installed the program i had 600+kbps on download on almost any torrent file i download it, but know even with torrent files with over 1000+ seed my download rate is 150kbps. i tested my speed and is 1.32Mbps for download and 0.32 Mbps, what is wrong with utorrent? this is my test results

Your ISP seems to have limited you to only 1.5 megabit/sec DL and 320 kilobit/sec UL now. Hopefully, you're using the 320 kilobit/sec upload settings...

Yes i love to know what speed i can upload at too this is tested from New Zealand too the UK

0.15 megabit/sec upload speed is rather low, but try a speed test to somewhere closer...like Australia.

If you don't get higher results, sadly it looks like you have about 0.15 megabit/sec = 0.15 * 1024 = 153.6 kilobit/sec upload ... or about 153 / 8 = 19 KiloBYTES/sec max upload speed.

I'd recommend using the 128 kbit/sec upload settings (with its 9 KiloBYTE/sec max upload) or 160 kbit/sec upload settings (with its 13 KiloBYTE/sec max upload), but I'd try testing higher alternate upload speeds while not downloading (while only seeding)...to help get your ratio up.

0.68 megabit/sec...which is close enough to the 640 kilobit/sec upload settings on my chart. But if you have a monthly bandwidth limit, you could blow through the whole amount pretty quickly with that uploading 24/7 ...

The plan im on in nz its capped during 9am till 2am thats for torrents all other traffic is ok when i grab a torrent in those hours my speed 150kb/s nothing more nothing else unless its a crap seeded torrent.

And i have unlimited what i can download and upload, just capped speed during those hours

Im having problems with private trackers then public im not sure if private are not seeded enough

150 KiloBYTES/sec is far less than your max measured speed for your connection. Your ISP seems to be throttling BitTorrent ALL the time. :(

Make sure your upload is not similarly crippled far below the max you set it to!

I have a 10mbit upload connection and I'm seeding about 300 torrents. I know it's much and it's highly unrecommended, but I'd like to ask: is it possible that you get very low download/upload speeds when seeding such many torrents? I can get decent speeds while seeding 0-250~ torrents(or a bit less), but somewhere around the 300-mark I seem get very low upload/download speeds when downloading torrents. I've seen users seeding 1000+ torrents, and I wonder: Is this possible without loosing much speed when having a 100mbit seedbox?

You do because you're splitting your upload speed by (upload slots * number of torrents)

Additionally, you start hitting hard drive speed limitations when you get into high numbers of torrents.

i found an excellent youtube video that helped me setup my uploading speed, and now im seeding torrents to my full upload speed and download speed, im still capped at my download speed but thats fine, but my upload is around 70Kb/s

Well I rarely get upload speed on those b/c there's not much leechers on them but often many seeders, so why would I hit HDD Speed limitations if I don't max my speed?

And I didn't really get the first part there, is that a formel for something I should put in somewhere in µtorrent settings? Does it mean Uploadspeed/(slots*torrents), in my case 1400kbs/20*299=1400kbs/5980=0,234. Don't get it =P

I have 1000kbs set as uploadlimit in utorrent though, accordingly to this guide.

I'm using private trackers, and this last part "

Even these settings aren't great for overseeded torrents, nearly dead torrents, PRIVATE TRACKERS!", should I take that as a big fat NO to using these settings when downloading from private trackers?

There's no such thing as an excellent youtube setup guide for uTorrent. You are now using unsupported settings.
