Generic / Re: Any way to remove or edit category list in 3.3.7 ?
« on: October 19, 2016, 09:32:14 PM »
There actually is an easy way to do so:

In qBittorrent's sidebar, right-click on any category and click on "Remove unused categories". In order to do so, you have to have the field "Categories" activated.
If that what I described above does not work, try removing each unused category one by one.

Hi, I wrote a reply in another thread for the same topic:,4502.msg23167.html#msg23167

Hi there.
The problem did not get unnoticed. I already opened an issue on qBittorrent's GitHub-page with the same problem:

Another user posted a quote of their logs, saying the same as my logs did:

Seems like Maxmind have changed some links to the specific GeoIP2-country file because of a monthly update (or Maxmind screwed up something big), thus qBittorrent cannot download the file. I guess the community needs to change one thing in the source code to get it working -- but then most people of the community do not really have coding experience, such as me. Saying this, it could be an other issue causing the problem (as mentioned above: Maxmind screwed up...), but we need to wait until the issue is found and resolved.

I wouldn't necessarily say "Stay away from free ones", but "Rather use one of the VPNs you pay for than a free one."
You do not know what they do with the information they receive of you (IP-address, maybe some cookies and whatnot), as they have to generate money in order to keep the VPN-servers alive too.
Commonly Private Internet Access is regarded as one of the best VPNs out there.
Quoting thexfile:

... create a picture for yourself of which VPN fits best to you.

Best weapon of choice: VPN.
What VPN? Well, that is your thing. People often recommend Private Internet Access. If you 'pirate' movies/music with qBittorrent, use a VPN. Using no VPN only is recommended when the content you download is allowed to be shared via BitTorrent (such as various Linux distributions).

To add a little more, qB to x seems really unstable without any reason, and results in really slow speeds.
On LAN it really slows down, while other torrent clients are up and awake, and use the speed they have available. Please, there has to be some clue behind this...

Bruh. Please stop writing in caps only, IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER.
Secondly, using Google certainly would help to find one of those guides, e.g. "Port Forwarding [Insert your router/modem model here]". It is just like that, and there is no other way to explain it.
Also, search for a guide on your VPN provider, if they support port forwarding, and if they do, be sure to do the same there (in some kind of panel, idk).

Please please please, a little more input, maybe even the speed of your internet and whatnot. We certainly cannot help you to fix your problem, as, compared to a car, you are saying that even though you checked the wheels, your car with the new steering wheel won't start up.

Windows / Re: External IP is my real IP before switching under VPN
« on: May 06, 2016, 12:57:54 PM »
My reply wasn't really meant to help anyone but the discussion. I just kinda needed to throw in my thoughts, as it finally seemed I wasn't alone with the problem. So it's just additional information I liked to provide, unfortunately not for the final solution I guess.

What OS are you using, anyway? Also, please the qBittorrent version, libtorrent, qt... you know the drill. ;)

Windows / Re: External IP is my real IP before switching under VPN

Hey there.
I noticed the same problem, but did not bother that much. I used PeerBlock to block certain peers I do not like to be connected to (e.g. China, India, Egypt, South Africa - they mostly just fill up the peer list without really participating in the transfer)
Using PeerBlock, it shows the "Source" and the "Destination". As long as there is no or whatever, but or so (which is the case for the local IP inside of the VPN), then I suppose I'm safe, as no peer wants to connect to my "real" local IP. If this does not work, I restart qBittorrent, as this seems to fix the problem.

In the attachements, you'll see the log (a little blacked out of course) with the described case, also you'll see the available adapters without any adapter for a VPN to choose (yes, I do have configured a VPN).

OS: Win10 Home 64Bit
qBittorrent: 3.3.4
libtorrent version: 1.0.9 (got it from some case on Github, works fine and faster for me)
qt: 5.6.0
Boost: 1.60

I guess every single of my "analysis" were unnecessary.
People at Reddits /r/torrents sometimes complain about qBittorrent's slower speeds (both upload and download), and search for alternatives, albeit this speed problem is the only problem as it seems.

As a summary, it does not seem to be the libtorrent version. Please note that I also tried libtorrent 1.0.8 for Deluge, and it still resulted in (way) better speeds than qBittorrent had them.
I'm still a little confused of what could trigger that problem, as OS cache does not seem to be the reason either.

/tl;dr: Don't mind this thread, it's yet another speed issue thread people won't be able to resolve anyway.

Only diff in qbittorent and deluge in regards to libtorrent is the build version, qbt uses an arbitrary "working" build of libtorrent 1.0.8 and deluge builds with 1.0.9 last i looked.

afaik the most recent version (which came out in September 2015) came with libtorrent 1.0.7, and since they rarely update it, there was no other possiblity than replacing "libtorrent.pyd" from the files of the windows installer of libtorrent (which is what I did). One will need the version built with python 2.7 in order to get this working, which is not the version you'll get in the normal circumstances.

On a sidenote, I disabled OS cache, which resulted in more speed issues, looking a little more unstable.
On another sidenote, I reckon it was the same with Linux Mint 17.2, as I used to use it on my laptop for quite some time. qBittorrent was at v3.3.0 at that time iirc. Yet, the same results as mentioned in the 'big post'.

/e2: A possible suggestion would be disc useage/overload causing the slow transfer cap?
I believe qbittorent "sanity checks" pieces alot more frequently than utorrent/qbittorent.
If you're using a small piece size in a single seed/peer case it can lead to a slower transfer rate.

So far, I was convinced that libtorrent takes over that part, which is why I was wondering since Deluge (which uses libtorrent, too) does reach way higher speeds on LAN.

For this test, I am using an archive of the size 562MB. The torrent, created with Deluge, has a piece size of 1MiB, thus has 563 pieces.

What I analysed: Speeds, HDD usage and special things that may have happened, plus possible additional information (if I could get some)

Router model is a Fritz!Box 7330, using channel 4 at 2.4GHz (thus no influence by other WiFis in my neighbourhood), 802.11n @ 72MBit/s on the laptop.

// This reply will get edited, as soon as I get more results, or I forgot some infos.

How all clients are set up (yes, all of them):
  • no speed limits
  • used ports are all forwarded, and only used once per try
  • Global maximum number of connections: 200
  • Maximum number of connections per torrent: 30
  • Global Maximum number of upload slots: 8
  • Maximum number of upload slots per torrent: 2

Deluge 1.3.12 to x

Deluge 1.3.12 to qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha: Speeds around 1-1.3MiB/s; Read Cache Hits: 95,39 // HDD usage peaks around 2MB/s to 1 MB/s to 0MB/s, and repeating.
Deluge 1.3.12 to µTorrent 2.2.1: Speeds around 2-2.5MB/s, sometimes going down to 1.5MB/s, but not lower. // HDD usage peaks constantly around 2-3MB/s.
Deluge 1.3.12 to µTorrent 3.4.6: Speeds around 3-3.5MB/s // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 7MB/s
Deluge 1.3.12 to Deluge 1.3.12: Speeds around 3-3.8MiB/s // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 7MB/s

What I mean with "peaks":

qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha to x

qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha to qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha: Speeds around 780KiB/s-1.3MiB/s; Read Cache Hits: 50,00  // HDD usage peaks around 2MB/s to 1 MB/s to 0MB/s, and repeating.
qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha to µTorrent 2.2.1: Speeds around 1.4-1.6MB/s, sometimes going down to 1.5MB/s, but not lower. // HDD usage peaks constantly around 2-3MB/s.
qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha to µTorrent 3.4.6: Speeds around 2.7-3.4MB/s // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 7MB/s
qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha to Deluge 1.3.12: Speeds around 780-1.3MiB/s // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 2MB/s

Note: When stopping the transfer either of the leeching client (Laptop) or the seeding client (Desktop), it takes way more time to reconnect and restart the transfer than with Deluge.

µTorrent 3.4.6 to x

µTorrent 3.4.6 to qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha: Speeds around 250KiB/s-550KiB/s; Read Cache Hits: 83,07 // HDD usage around 1MB/s
µTorrent 3.4.6 to µTorrent 2.2.1: Speeds around 3.5-3.8MB/s // HDD usage peaks constantly around 2-3MB/s.
µTorrent 3.4.6 to µTorrent 3.4.6: Speeds around 2.7-3.4MB/s // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 7MB/s
µTorrent 3.4.6 to Deluge 1.3.12: Speeds around 2.9-3.4MiB/s // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 2MB/s

µTorrent 2.2.1 to x
(This one is really weird.)

µTorrent 2.2.1 to qBittorrent 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha: Speeds around 450KiB/s-850KiB/s; Read Cache Hits: 75,00 // HDD usage around 1MB/s
µTorrent 2.2.1 µTorrent 2.2.1: Speeds around 3.4-3.5MB/s // HDD usage peaks constantly around 2-3MB/s.
µTorrent 2.2.1 to µTorrent 3.4.6: Speeds around 3.3-3.7MB/s, connection drops when reaching this peak. // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 7MB/s
µTorrent 2.2.1 to Deluge 1.3.12: Speeds around 650KiB/s-900KiB/s  // HDD usage peaks around between 0MB/s to 2MB/s

Instead of Desktop > Laptop, I did the same the other way around, with the same results.

x to qBittorrent is slow, the most times.

Okejjjj Ciaobaby, alright.
I'll post the settings of qBittorrent later, as they also apply for all the other clients.

I'm going to edit this post in some hours again, as I am quite busy now (other than writing this reply).

// On the other hand, Ciaobaby, a simple reply with "We need more information about ... " would have saved you much more time than expanding the reply to an example we all once had. But thanks for pointing out that I will have to collect more information. At least something about that reply which isn't about babbling. ;)

Windows / "Slow" speeds in LAN
« on: April 14, 2016, 08:40:34 PM »
Recently, I transferred some files to my laptop from my desktop over the Local Area Network. My desktop has a LAN-line (100mbit/s) directly to the router, my laptop has the best connectivity to the WiFi (72mbit/s - 802.11n)

To get to the point, I tried different BitTorrent-clients (µTorrent, Deluge and qBittorrent) to test the speeds for transferring the same file over and over again, and qB was the slowest by far.

µTorrent to µTorrent = about 4MiB/s
µTorrent to Deluge = about 4MiB/s (and the other way around too)
qBittorrent to µTorrent/Deluge/qBittorrent* = Peaks to 1.6MiB/s, usually about 600KiB/s (same the other way around) -> 3.4.0alpha gave me peaks to 1.8MiB/s

*qBittorrent to qBittorrent resulted in frequent disconnects.

All tests were done with the best circumstances (laptop and PC were the only devices in the network, no inbound/outbound traffic).

Laptop OS: Win7 SP1 Home Premium 64bit
Desktop OS: Win10 Home 64bit

Code: [Select]
qBittorrent: 3.3.4 / 3.4.0alpha
libtorrent: 1.0.8
Qt: 5.6.0
Boost: 1.60.0

Code: [Select]
µTorrent versions: 2.2.1; 3.4.6
Code: [Select]
Deluge: 1.3.12
Python: 2.7
libtorrent: 1.0.9

I'd be glad to be enlightened why this is occuring, and why qBittorrent behaves like this. Thank you in advance :)

If you need aadditional information, I will provide them asap.

// EDIT: I could have put this elsewhere... Mods, do not hesitate to move this thread if it is in the wrong sub-forum.

I mean, really? Just HOW exactly is anybody going to be "helpful" to that question????

You sure have a point there. It is hard not to give a (more or less) 'stupid' answer to a stupid question indeed.
And sure it is up to you how to answer on such questions.
Yet the response won't be a nice one. Sure these forums are not a costumer service as EA has it, but still I think the community should offer their best at helping.
Of course no one needs to be friendly and no one has to use kind words to help someone with their problem, as no one should get salty or mad about one single reply, in the case that they are being helped.
Still I think, and I agree with KitKat, if the questioneer does not provide enough information, then we should ask them.
But finally it depends on the poster who asks for more information.
In your case, CiaoBaby, you don't necessarily need to do it (as it seems to me you're known for not always responding in the 'most nicest ways'), no one needs to do it.
If that helps is questionable, though.

Besides, I should remind myself that posting opinions on the internet... well, you get the gist. ;)
