Preferences > U torrent settings


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Can somebody explain to me these different settings. This is the screenshot of the settings at my end :-


So what do these settings mean & how do they effect my searching, downloading & uploading capacities ?

1. Global no. of connections :- 250 What effect would lowering or upping do?

2. Maximum no. of peers connected per torrent :- 60 how lowering or upping this would effect?

3. No. of upload slots per torrent :- given 6 here

Another checkbox given Use additional upload slots if upload speeds < 90%

Have no clue about this one?

Lastly Queue settings

Maximum no. of active torrents (upload or downloaded) :- given 8 here

Maximum no. of active downloads :- given 12 here

When one is saying active downloads does that mean the single download or does it also include the pieces from a download?

For e.g. Let's say I have 7 movies to download from a.avi to h.avi . After the 1st movie is downloaded I start sharing/seeding that movie. Now what kind of settings should I have so that both me & the other peers get good download speeds.

Looking for suggestions. Thanx in advance

Thanx for the advice B2K24 but that doesn't seem to be happening in the near future. I'm from India & these are our ping rates to yahoo :-


There are efforts by the regulators to bring down the ping rates below 300 ms that should improve some bit alongwith some more bandwidth I guess.

@firon I did stop the torrents before going to DSL reports :)
