Constantly Uploading?


Recommended Posts

Hi There

I've been using utorrent for a few years now, but I'm no expert. Recently had this issue come to my attention and wondering if its anything someone has experienced or can help with?

About 2 months ago utorrent started uploading constantly at 1120 kbs, which seemed like quite a lot as I generally download - then only seed for a short time.

Either way, I switched my speed display to only show downloading speeds and forgot about it.

However - its still going on! Even when I stop all of my current torrents listed or controll their speed for seeding. I have now gone into the preferences and set upload limit at 1 kbs, but can't work out a) what is being uploaded B) where it is going or c) how to stop it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

a) 1kbs upload limit will limit your download speed too - minimum is 6kbs not to be limited

B) the bittorrent protocol and system only works when you share, means take (download) and give (upload) - otherwise the system will be hurt and die ...

c) a small amount of up/download is normal because of DHT and tracker alignment

In general: check your seeding goal, should be more than 1.0 :)
