magao Posted August 24, 2011 Report Share Posted August 24, 2011 It appears that the RSS downloader does not send an Accept-Encoding: gzip header, meaning that the RSS feeds are downloaded uncompressed. RSS feeds are highly compressible.Advantages:1. Reduction in required bandwidth - may make the difference between successfully downloading a feed or updating a tracker in a heavily loaded situation.2. Reduces I/O load on RSS feed server.Disadvantages:1. Requires gunzip capability in uTorrent;2. May slightly increase CPU load on RSS feed server (in practice this tends to be more than compensated for by the reduction in I/O). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
