Problems throttling torrent uploads
September 16, 2004 12:17 PM   Subscribe

Tomato Torrent 1.0(v11) on OSX 10.3 - Why does torrent upload bandwidth go to zero anytime I enter any maximum upload limit? I've tried 8K/sec and 80K/sec and the upload just dies, goes to 0.0K/sec. As soon as I re-enter "0" or "no limit," upload resumes. I'd like to be able to throttle my uploads without killing them.

I use Azureus; it lets me specify a global upload cap. Runs great - I've had it up and going for 2+ weeks at a time, both seeding and downloading.

Sounds like a bug in Tomato. I like Azureus quite a bit more -- I tried out Tomato when it was mentioned in some other thread, but it didn't seem too featureful -- and this feature works fine there. I set an upload rate limit for all torrents, currently 66K/s, and it just works.

Even though it displays the upload rate in kB/s you have to enter the rate in B/s, i.e. you have to enter 8192, not 8, to get 8 kB/s upload.

I may actually give Azureus a try, but boaz totally wins. Thanks!
