Linux / Re: Migrating from Transmission to qBittorrent
« Last post by Peter on Today at 10:01:56 AM »
Is there a way to install openoffice writer from yum? Can I add some repository then do that?

Well, not sure how this is even related to the topic, but... which distribution are you using?

Windows / Re: Settings recommendations for 500/500 fiber
« Last post by Peter on Today at 10:00:44 AM »
There is really no optimal way to do this.
- Your storage can be slow, can clog up if you download too fast. I would simply download slower. I have a fast connection but stick to like a few MB/s speeds, because do I really need that file 5 minutes faster? No. But, my system remains a lot more responsive.
- Your router can get "overloaded" / loaded with the connections. Keep them low. You can stick to the default values and have better results. I mean, increasing the numbers will not magically increase your speed. That's not how it works.

Hope that helps!

Windows / Settings recommendations for 500/500 fiber
« Last post by flexy123 on Today at 08:27:59 AM »
Hi!

I just got my fiber upgraded to 500/500 Mbps (symmetrical, from 300/20). (According to Speedtest I have *real* 500/320, but this is to local servers of course).

I am looking for optimized settings for qbittorent.

Note that we are TWO here on the LAN, and we both are torrenting, so the settings should accommodate that, for each of us on their PC.

My current settings are:

Global Nr. of max. connections: 700
Max. connections per torrent: 144
Global max. nr. of upload slots:  40
Max nr. of upload slots per torrent: 11

On "Advanced" I have here max nr. of half-open connections on 50 (Win 10 64bit), Wife runs Win 7 64 bt.

Settings likely not optimal since PC behaves a little flakey. I somehow gathered these settings with the Azureus settings guide which obviously is outdated.

Thanks!!

Windows / Re: qBittorent won't close

One known underlying cause of qBT being unable to close -- BAD/Faulty Windows update patch!

VPN could be bandwidth-overloaded and throttle to low speeds from time-to-time.

VPN could be connection-overloaded and almost crash and go to low speed as a result.

Upload-side overloads can cause massive download-side speed die-offs.

qBitTorrent settings may simply be too aggressive for one or more reasons.

I did not check, but it should work theoretically with version 2 as well. As a maximum, you will need to turn off the import of tags. And you can import in already existing qBittorrent, but I still advise you to make backups

I tested it and it worked,
Had to force shutdown qbittorrent and recover the backup.
Because it was moving all my files from the original destination to the download location from qbittorrent.
Do not quite understand what the problem was. And you probably mean copying, not moving?

- Internet connection speed - 20-32 MBps (Speedtest.net) Comcast (west coast)
- qbittorrent 4.1.1
- Default qbittorrent settings except for up to 5 active torrents
- using a well-regarded VPN (20-32 MBps dl with VPN active)
- with 1 to 3 torrents active, each torrent will reach 5-15 MBps for maybe 1-2 minutes, then the dl speed drops below 10 kBps
- occasionally while dl is active at 10 kBps or less, speed will jump back up to 5 - 15 MBps briefly, then goes back down to 10 kBps or less
- occasionally, some torrents never slow down significantly and will download at 5 MBps or faster until the dl is complete
- files being dowloaded are BIG... 500 MB to 80 GB
- seeders range from 25 to 1000, doesn't seem to matter much re. dl speed, most torrents connect to most of the available seeders
- port in qBittorrent is forwarded and qBit app is allowed "in" and "out" connections

Thoughts on what might fix this? Remember, occasionally, these large torrents download at high speeds with no problems. But I'd say that happens maybe 10% of the time and the slow speed is there 90% of the time.
- 1 to 3 active torrents... speeds start out fast for each one, then slow down drastically in 2 minutes or less (usally less)

Create a category for them, and have your standard view be "Uncategorized" which shows all torrents without a category.
