Re: Excessive read speed when seeding, 5-10x upload rate

Update: Libtorrent 1.12.14 appears to ameliorate this issue. I'm still yet to play around with suggest_mode, but all the other options i previously had enabled are now working fine again. They are piece_extent_affinity=1, 105% watermark ratio, 2048k watermark, 2 GB disk cache. These are fine so far....

Re: Excessive read speed when seeding, 5-10x upload rate

Yeah indeed now i found out about the predictive read algorythm that was supposed to work together with suggest_mode, but ends up reading excessively even when the disk cache is full and it's got decent amount of hits (15-20%) I will raise an issue at libtorrent's git and return here with what i fou...

Excessive read speed when seeding, 5-10x upload rate

I thought initially that i have too many upload slots or it has a burst speed, but it's neither these, the read rate from the disk really is a few orders of magnitude higher than the upload speed. I tried fiddling with read cache, disbaling it altogether, setting async_io to 1, nothing worked. Downl...

Re: Few small questions about qbt-windows

Look, i can max out my connection now... 25.1 MiB/s upload speed and absolutely no overloading! I was right about to post a new issue on github related to the overloads and crashes i had, but i think it just got solved by itself in 3.3.1... Unfortunately the RAM usage is still high, but that's a lib...

Re: Few small questions about qbt-windows

I was gone in the last few days and didn't have the time to further look at this. When i came back i saw a new version of qBittorrent got uploaded: 3.3.1. So i uninstalled 3.3.0, with all of the settings, and installed 3.3.1 from scratch. I kept my old conections/upload slots settings and set the ca...

Re: Few small questions about qbt-windows

[quote="Nemo"] You can open a new issue at the Github page if you want, developers will look at it possibly. Explain it as detailed as possible, add your screenshots too and you can refer to this topic also. [/quote] Yeah, i'll post a new issue there. I will also provide some logcats, and ...

Re: Few small questions about qbt-windows

[quote="ciaobaby"]Not so weird, it suggests that you need to adjust your connections / upload slot ratios and your upload rate limiting to let the client run more efficiently.[/quote] I tried limiting the connections per torrent at ~100 and the upload slots at ~15-20. Still didn't help, ca...

[quote="ciaobaby"]The bittorrent protocol doesn't work as you seem to think it does, which is also the reason that Windows makes such a dogs breakfast of caching with BT clients BitTorrent clients do not really need sequential read access as they do not read entire files from disc or write...

Re: Few small questions about qbt-windows

[quote="ciaobaby"]Is that with the cache size on 'auto'?[/quote] Yeah, it still is  :( And disabling the OS cache does significantly reduce the amount of RAM consumed by qBittorrent, but also cuts the download speeds at ~ 80 MiB/s and the upload at ~ 14 MiB/s. I might reconsider buying ano...

[quote="ciaobaby"]pre-allocation is not what you think it is. It does not allocate the required disc space, that is already done when the task is loaded, Pre-allocate merely fills the already allocated space with zero's (0).[/quote] Yeah, i confused that with sequential downloading. [quote...

[quote="Switeck"]Scanning the drive/s for errors and Defragging the HDDs may speed up seeding slightly. (I only recommend defragging about once a week at most.) Not using NTFS on the drives or using preallocate for the torrent files should decrease the necessity and frequency of running a ...

Re: Few small questions about qbt-windows

Okay, thanks everyone! I'll only disable DHT and leave the rest enabled, hopefully i won't be connecting to public peers anymore. One of my private trackers actually recommends leaving LSD on, possibly it has an effect with how the home networks in Romania (where i live) are placed: one main hub for...

Few small questions about qbt-windows

Hello everyone, i just signed up here so i'm still getting to know everything around. I'd like to ask you a few questions about qBittorrent, using the latest version right now (3.3.0): -A rather dumb question first of all: if i haven't set any download/upload limit, then will the "Apply rate li...
