Problems with large files and NTFS partition

Recommended Posts

I'm using uTorrent Server build 27079 with Ubuntu 10.10 Server. When I'm trying to download large file (>20 Gb) to NTFS volume, ntfs-3g driver starts throttling (top shows mount.ntfs-3g taking 100% CPU), torrent downloading speed drastically decreases to 10-100 Kbps, and respective partition becomes unresponsive for read/write operations. Turned file pre-allocation off and diskio.sparse_files on, no help so far.

This is definitely big file downloading by utserver problem, because smaller torrents are loading as expected - with up to 3 Mbps speed, and stopping utserver service removes cpu load/fs lags.

It is a "known" problem with Ubuntu 10+ and the NTFS-3G driver (the bug is in the driver) so is nothing at all to do with uTorrent, therefore beyond the scope of these forums.

Is it "known" how to fix it? Btw, same download with Transmission doesn't have such problems.
