MAC / Re: Use of uTP (Micro Transport Protocol)
« Last post by Peter on October 19, 2019, 11:09:03 AM »
well, the official article is probably the best: (it's a good read, short too)

Basically, it tries to self-regulate so the traffic does not slow down even with max speeds and stuff.
It just works. So it should be used practically all the time? There are really no downsides to it IMO.
Some super hardcore seeders swear by only TCP, but they use servers with 10 HDD RAID arrays, 1gbps (or faster) connection, etc. And they connect to an enterprise router/switch. So in their case, when they want to squeeze every last drop out of their connection, TCP might be beneficial, as the PC is super fast, the connection is fast, router is super fast, etc.

But for any other person, connection, I'd just recommend uTP.

Even the original Blue Skin Graph from early uTorrent would be great.
There is a drop in file to change the newer versions speed graph to blue.
Much easier on the eyes.

What that mean? You can't connect to any tracker?

Writing an essay is extremely useful because it allows the author to learn to clearly and correctly formulate thoughts, structure information, use basic concepts, highlight causal relationships, illustrate the experience with relevant examples, and substantiate his conclusions. But unfortunately, there is not always a lot of free time to sit down and calmly complete the task. Is it possible to get a well-written essay on this site ? Thanks for the answer.

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.

So is it a problem that I could solve or I should talk to the internet provider? Because like I said if some other program (not the torrent) is downloading it reaches higher rates.

Sounds like a LAN connection stuck on 100 megabits/second mode instead of 1 gigabit/second mode.
Windows / not seeding but still active
« Last post by laavamara on October 16, 2019, 07:34:19 PM »
I'm on 4.1.8 but still problem has persisted for a while in earlier versions too.
So, some torrents just won't seed but state "Time active" and not "time active (seeded for x days)" and they are not registered as I'm seeding on tracker either. It's totally random and torrents downloaded from same tracker just randomly do this and some work fine. What could be happening here?
MAC / Use of uTP (Micro Transport Protocol)
« Last post by Silizium on October 16, 2019, 06:02:22 PM »
in which situation is it recommended to use uTP? I don't really understand this protocol and would like to get a glimpse about it.
