seeding does not stop after goal reached


Recommended Posts

problem: utorrent does not stop seeding even after reaching the seeding goal,

despite setting "when utorrent reaches the seeding goal, limit the upload rate to" = 0

fresh installation of utorrent 2.2.1, resume.dat has been importet from a previous installation.


I tried overriding the default settings for the torrent listed above, and set both minimum ratio and minimum seeding time to 1, without change:


This does not seem to happen with all torrents.

It might be only torrents imported from the old resume.dat, but that is hard to test.

I've seen same thing. Don't know real answer, but seems might be that seeding will continue while d/l still active. (just observation). It does say the value is "MINIMUM ratio," not a hard maximum.

It seems if file finishes d/l'g before seeding goal is reached, then UT does stop seeding at the ratio % in settings. Not positive, but appears it's how it works. Quite often, I'll see finished d/l's that show an upload ratio exactly = to my setting. If d/l files stall / slow way down, uploading can continue. I think this is when the seeding goal is exceeded.
