What exactly is the Minimum Ratio field in the Seeding Goal section?

How exactly is the Minimum Ratio field in the Seeding Goal section calculated? Is the higher the ratio the more that is seeded? So, for example, if the field says 150%, the downloading rate (or total, which is it?) is kept at 150% more than the uploading? Or is it vice versa? And the throttling applies to the uploading, but not the downloading? ll I got from the Help file is this (doesn't answer my question):

"The Minimum ratio field allows you to set the ratio that you wish to reach before µTorrent throttles the speed for the torrent job (or stops it, if you set it to do so). Setting the ratio to -1 is equivalent to setting it to unlimited. Setting this value to 0 tells µTorrent to ignore this value and look only at the seeding time limit. This value is interpreted as a percentage. µTorrent will throttle the seeding process only after both this and time limit have been reached."

Calculation of the ratio has nothing to do with the transfer rates. It has to do with the transfer amounts. The user manual's glossary defines share ratio as "[t]he ratio of the amount of data you've uploaded to the amount of data you've downloaded."

Seeding goal is checked after the torrent finishes downloading, and if the goal is reached, then µTorrent will throttle the torrent's speed based on the settings found in Preferences > Queueing.
