LordSocky Posted July 20, 2009 Report Share Posted July 20, 2009 I've noticed that on some torrents, I'll be downloading at about 1/10 of my full bandwidth, but it still feels as if it's taking all of it. For example, I'll be downloading a file, and it will be running at a speed of 100kb/s (my cap is at 1000kb/s) and everybody on the network feels the connection slow to a crawl. On the other hand, I could be downloading a full 1000kb/s over HTTP, and nobody even notices. This only happens on some torrents, though. Usually where the seed/leech ratio is close, or more tipped towards the leechers. When there's significantly more seeders, it seems to happen less. I'm not really asking for a solution, (however, if you have one to offer, of course I'll be happy ) I'm just curious as to why this happens. Something that has to do with how the protocol works, I'm sure.Thanks ahead of time for the enlightenment Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
