Jaylin Posted August 2, 2011 Report Share Posted August 2, 2011 This is one file I am having a problem with. Other files upload fine. I have it set to initial seed and have it forced started. I even set the bandwidth Allocation to "High" to, supposedly, give it priority, but 90% of the time there is no upload activity, and the time to completion has the infinity symbol, even though it will show 6-8 peers. Even when there is activity, the vast majority of the time it has a very slow upload of around 1-2 kbs. I figured there was always the unlikely possibility that all the peers had really bad internet connections, but that doesn't explain the complete lack of activity for so much of the time, even though it shows the peers.What makes it more confusing is that there will be short bursts of activity where the upload speed will jump really high, like 70-80 kbs, and sometimes over 100, but it only lasts for a short time anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute, then it rapidly drops, and often stops all activity completely again. If it can burst that high, it doesn't seem like bad connections on the peers would be the problem. The file is a little over 3 GB. It's the biggest file I have uploaded myself, but that shouldn't be a huge factor, other than taking a little longer to complete. It is ridiculous. I started it nearly 4 days ago and I am only showing 1.25 GB uploaded so far, so naturally, there are no other seeds yet. Meanwhile, another file I uploaded yesterday has nearly 100 seeds already. Other files have very constant upload rates, some maintain very high upload rates even though they are set to "Normal" Bandwidth Allocation. Today I even tried pausing all the other uploads to give this one free reign to do as it pleased, but it is a dead fish. It had about a one minute burst over 100 kbs, then dropped to nothing, and has been there ever since, still showing peers. I have read all the tweak suggestions, and made the suggested changes, but this file is frustrating me. It just doesn't make sense to me, and I was hoping that someone might have a suggestion, or at least an explanation of this. Is there something that could be wrong that only affects one upload like this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
