Priority On Uploads

Recommended Posts

So, I have a file where I'm the only available seeder and occasionaly there are someone that downloads it. ATM there are 3 waiting and 1 of those are downloading from me.

THEN! I download 3 files with 153/199/434 seeders and 137/228/332 peers. If I try to say to the client that "Screw those, there's enough seeders already, I have one that's more important!" and then set max upload rate to 25kB/s (why can't I block upload per file totaly?) I get next to no download speed.

Can someone please explain to me why it's more important to upload files with hundreds of seeders than to the lone bastard?

When I started with torrents many years ago there was a system where you could stop downloading to those who didn't upload, but it was manual, this seems to be automatic and generated by the client, and it doesn't look at your total upload (percentage of line capacity and I have 700kbps (80ish KB/s), only the specific file.

But isn't kind of unfair that the small and "needy" don't get what they need when the big and "brutish" get something they could easily get without my help? There should be som kind of parameter that you can set to decide who gets to use your upload speed, and without the client punishing you for doing that, that should be decided on the percentage of your lines capacity.

If they aren't using your entire upload, chances are it's because they are trying to download too many torrents for their connection. Things would perform better per-torrent if they ran fewer torrents at once.
