Bittorrent: A lot download traffic when I am only seeding?

Is this for Bittorrent users as well as Utorrent?

Well, here goes:

I recently moved to a new HDD.

Before, when I was only seeding - ie not downloading from a torrent, bittorrent showed at the bottom of the screen that I was downloading a few kb/s.

Now it's more like 35-45 kb/s when only seeding.

Anyone have a clue?

Thanx

It would be very helpful to me if you could use more words = explain more of what you are thinking. :)

I am not very good at guessing and furthermore English is not my first language. :)

Thanx. ;)

I am guessing that you might mean: Have I added any feeds.

The answer is no, have no RSS feeds added.

I would say the DL speed is due to DHT (you have a lot of loaded torrents). If you see no value for the active torrents (click on the label 'Active') in the column 'Download speed', so DHT is likely the reason.

NB: just use PrintScreen on your keyboard to make a capture then paste into MS Paint. :)

Right, thanx. :rolleyes:

Let's go back to the beginning - I moved from one HDD to another. I have almost always had about 80 - 100 torrents active. I need the ul to better my ratio at http://nordic-t.org/.

I'd say the DL speed is more likely to do with the protocol overhead involved with having almost 100 torrents active.

If this were the case I would have the same problem earlier - I didn't.

Thanx a lot, but I 'm afraid that this is not the solution.

moogly -

....so DHT is likely the reason.

I'm not quite sure what this means or what to do about it. Maybe there is nothing to do about it.

Still I find it strange that things have changed so much after I swapped to another HDD.
