Windows / Re: Torrent speed limit
« on: October 17, 2019, 05:55:13 PM »
That regular downloads are fast suggests trouble. Sorry I missed that point on my first reply.

1. Do internet searches about your internet provider (recently?) throttling BitTorrent traffic.

2. Have you tried other BitTorrent apps? If so, they might be faster. (Don't bother if you're not already running them.)

3. Are you trying to save torrents to a slow, spinning HDD? BitTorrent in general and qBitTorrent in particular is especially bad about generating very fragmented downloads. Full allocation in advance may help, as might defragging the HDD.

4. Watch out that uploads aren't crippling download speed by overloading the line. By the same token, allowing too little upload speed in qBitTorrent will also cripple the download speeds.

5. qBitTorrent may be slowly crippled by having more-and-more torrents running at once. Its automatic torrent queuing is pretty bad also, leaving torrents stalled or queued-but-not-started for no apparent reason. So try stopping almost all of them and test with just 1-4 busy torrents.

Sounds like a LAN connection stuck on 100 megabits/second mode instead of 1 gigabit/second mode.

Windows / Re: Multiple torrents sharing the same download folder?

If you're downloading multiple torrents into the same download folder, be careful about deleting them!
There's been reports that deleting any torrents using a download folder deletes the download folder even if it's not empty!

If qbittorrent.exe is using 1.1 GB ram according to task manager, then check qBitTorrent's cache size (in advanced settings).

Link to my long rant on the subject:
Chilling effects on qBitTorrent...;quote=25616;topic=5165.0;last_msg=25616

I do not laugh about it so much as cry -- too many people put more faith in their security software than everything else to do with computers, and all too often that faith is sorely misplaced.

Windows / Re: Apparently Capped

Test with uTP disabled...and then test with TCP disabled (only allow uTP).

If both of those perform poorly...
Please test a different BitTorrent client, preferably one that doesn't use libtorrent at its core.

If it's still the case that everything is slow...
There may be some talk somewhere on the internet about if/when/how your ISP is throttling/capping BitTorrent which might clue you into how to combat it.

Windows / Re: 4000+ files need Recheck after power hit, anyway to bypass?
« on: October 01, 2019, 01:57:56 PM »
Unless you have backups of qBitTorrent's settings, there's only 1 other way to somewhat avoid a recheck.
...And that's to manually re-add all the torrents with the option checked when re-add them to skip recheck.

Only things I can think of is do a ram test for failing ram...and also scan your storage drives for errors.

Windows / Re: Qbittorrent seem to be storing download logs somehow!!

That probably won't happen if you remove qBitTorrent's old settings and restart from scratch...then manually add back the torrents you want to keep.,2826.msg13292/topicseen.html#msg13292      Backup qBT settings!

Windows / Re: Upload queueing behavior
« on: September 29, 2019, 12:18:29 AM »
Also, with so many torrents potentially started at once, setting max connections per torrent really low like 5-10 each might reduce the tendency for 1 really busy torrent to hog all your global max connections.

There seems to be serious speed issues when that happens, going by this post:
Increasing connections per torrent slows down all torrents

This might help, were it implemented:
[Wishlist] Alternate connections per torrent while seeding.

Windows / Re: Upload queueing behavior
« on: September 27, 2019, 11:22:27 PM »
Instead of using torrent queuing (which seems pretty broken according to your screenshots!) to regulate the amount of uploading, use global max upload slots and per torrent max upload slots so your upload isn't trying to send to peers at <1 KB/sec each.

Unless a qBitTorrent/libtorent dev fixes this torrent queuing problem, all we can do is use partial workarounds. :(

Windows / Re: Possible crypto-miner detected
« on: September 27, 2019, 11:01:42 PM »
So it's once again another example of...

"Chilling effects on qBitTorrent... (AV false-flagging qBitTorrent!)",5165.0.html

...But it would be helpful to know whether ALL versions of qBitTorrent are flagged as "Possible crypto-miner detected" to know how mad to get at Acronis.
And in any case, report back to them that they're false-flagging legit software.

Windows / Re: Possible crypto-miner detected

qBitTorrent is open source software...and free too.
Are ALL versions of qBitTorrent detected as having a crypto-miner?

Windows / Re: Delayed Write Failed
« on: September 25, 2019, 02:43:53 AM »
Although it is probably better left checked, try unchecking if you're having problems again.

Windows / Re: Delayed Write Failed
« on: September 24, 2019, 11:36:47 PM »
I didn't name the option's "Coalesce reads & writes" under the Advanced options, the 7th option under the Libtorrent section.
Not having that checked will cause qBitTorrent's reads and writes to often be 16KB size too much of the time.
