Global download limit do not work?
« on: April 05, 2019, 03:46:29 PM »
Hi,

I am running qBittorrent 4.1.5 and the global download speed limit do nothing? Even if I set it to 300 KiB/s it will max out on 11 MB/s?

Known bug... although there's "working as designed" reasons that might be happening as well, such as uTP or local peers not being limited.

Is there a bug report or something you could link to? Sounds like a subterfuge to me. If I canĀ“t limit the download reate global then I will have to choose another torrent client. Everytime downloading in qTorrent it max out and there is nothing left to netflix, surf or anything.

Bug reports:
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/8433
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/9179

Doesn't look like it'll be solved anytime soon since almost nobody is willing to try testing different settings to narrow down the triggering event/s.
