Windows / Re: Some clarifications about OS cache, Disk cache and gaming
« Last post by Switeck on Today at 12:08:37 AM »
Since you have disabled OS caching, turn qBT's disk cache on either automatic mode (-1) or 100-300 MB max size.
Set cache duration to 600 seconds (highest allowed), since throwing away data in cache is pointless if the cache isn't full.
Windows / Some clarifications about OS cache, Disk cache and gaming
« Last post by majin5 on October 21, 2018, 05:34:45 PM »
Hi guys, I am currently using the 4.1.3 64-bit version of qbittorrent under Windows 10 x64 with 8gb of ram with a 12Mbps internet plan.

Basically I noticed since the last few releases, I had issues when loading one particular game Valve's Dota2. My comp would take ages for the initial load and would take even longer for the first ingame load of a map. After going through the usual list of suspects I found that this was happening only when qbt was running as well.

Now I have never had this problem before when running qbt simultaneously, so after checking the forums and alot of googling I disabled the OS cache setting and found that my load times and in game load times went back to what they used to be before.

I would like someone to please enlighten me on why is keeping the OS cache setting 'on' impacting me when I am playing Dota2. Also the game is installed on my primary hdd and I am downloading to another storage disk.

Now that I have disabled OS cache, should I change the disk cache settings which are disabled by default. After alot of reading on the forums and libtorrent I am thoroughly confused as well as what these setting do. Can anyone kindly help me in this regard.
Windows / Upload limit is not working
« Last post by javier on October 21, 2018, 04:17:38 PM »

I have an upload connection of 5mb. I have set a limit upload of 300 kb (3mb approx), but I see that the upload speed is about 500 kb (my full upload). I have search on internet and I have seen several users has the same problem. But none has found a solution.

Is it only happening to me?

Speed settings:

thank for info
Linux / Speed Problems on Linux with QB

Recently upgraded to Mint 19 and QB 4.1.3. Prior I was using Mint 18.3. My internet Speeds from are 113Mbps download and 12Mbps upload. I was always getting 7-9Mbps download speeds, even with 4.1.3 but now can't get over 950kbps per torrent. I can download 6-7 torrents and each will get upto an average of 800-950kbps but none over this 950kbps mark. I have everything open, full speed

So using vmware I loaded up a fresh install of mint 18.3 and updates and then a default install of QB 3.3.1
and my downloads were up where they belong in the 7Mb-9Mb speeds per torrent. Great, happy again. Now I take and update QB to 4.1.3 and the speeds are now in the 800-950kbps same as my regular desktop. Next I completely remove QB, clean up and reinstall and lock 3.3.1 and no change, still at 800-950 mark. And yep, speedtest is still on mark.

The server I'm pulling torrents from is my own server all the time. So it isn't a seeding problem on that end.

What can I be missing that would cause this? Anyone else have this problem? Driving me crazy...
Windows / How do I check if after download commands are working?
« Last post by orcoboi on October 20, 2018, 03:24:35 PM »
I tried with a couple of complex commands that were supposed to help organize my download library, but when I noticed that they were not working I tried a simpler one like
Code: [Select]
"whoami > D:/Media/log.txt" but even that didn't produce an output, but I suspect that it may be due to the changes in 4.0. So my question is: what is a command that is supposed to work that I can try to check if I'm the one messing up?
Windows / How to prevent column widths auto-resizing when resizing main window?
« Last post by pstein on October 20, 2018, 10:33:47 AM »
In my qBittorrent I setup the columns to show and their widths according to my taste.

However when I resize the qbittorrent main window then the widths of all the columns are automatically resized as well.

I don't want this!

How can I prevent auto-resizing of column widths?

Windows / Where are the options saved? Ex+Import on another qbittorent installation?

Where are the current options saved?

I want to export them (for backup purposes or to import them on another qbittorrent installation).

Can I store them somehow as an *.ini file in the qbittorrent installation directory for portable usage?
