Dravonic Posted February 19, 2012 Report Share Posted February 19, 2012 Recently came across a torrent that is causing me a lot of trouble with hashfails. 110 pieces downloaded, 143 hashfails, about 40 banned peers.I've never seen anything of the sort even though I'm using utorrent for years. I find it hard to believe that so many bad peers are concentrated in this single torrent, when more than 200 others rarely get more than 3 hashfails, most getting none. It isn't even such a popular torrent (less than 2000 peers in the swarm). I believe I've encountered a/some malicious peer(s) that utorrent is having trouble to detect.I've had a look around and thanks to the manual I found out it has 2 settings I can toy around with for banning peers, bt.ban_ratio and bt.ban_threshold. The threshold is easy to grasp, but the ratio is rather complicated when I have no idea what kind of calculations are involved. What are sane values I can use here? Or better yet, where can I find a detailed explanation of this ratio? Does anyone have any suggestions?It is very likely that this guy is exploiting default values, meaning a bit of tweaking should help me out here.Using utorrent 3.1.2 build 26753.
