It helps to ease my mind that people can connect. I have a few downloading now. I used the latest list of trackers I found elsewhere on the forum so in theory it should be ok. I just wondered why I had connections reset.

With a newly uploaded torrent, it sometimes takes a while for the trackers to propagate.  It's not instant typically.  If at this point peers can connect odds are all is fine.

Hi there, I'm trying to seed some torrents from my seedbox (I'm a trial uploader) but for some reason I'm seeing very slow speeds on them.

I don't seem to have this issue on other sites so I was wondering if I'm doing something wrong? Are there any special trackers I need to use? Using rutorrent interface with a piece size of 4MB for the torrents, do you think that might be causing issues of some sort?

I notice that your torrents are on the large side (greater than 8GB ) and have found with larger torrents one seedbox often struggles to keep up.
The answer in my case was either to use more than one seedbox or use one of new category Raid 0 SSD seedboxes that have greater speed.

I have four of your packs on my seedbox atm as Im downloading them for verification.
I can see plenty of upload on them to other clients (one is uploading at 14MB/s atm) so maybe your seedbox has an issue ?

I can probably leave them running for a while after verification.

Recommended always use best working trackers, we have a thread here where you can 15 working ones, https://torrentgalaxy.org/forums.php?action=viewtopic&topicid=92&page=4

About selecting a piece, always use 16 MB if the file/files are over a Gig.  according to your uploaded torrents none of them less than 8 Gb.

- the bigger the torrent file, the smaller the .torrent file if u create using 16 MB.
- the smaller the torrent file, the bigger the .torrent file if u create using 16 MB.

if the file is around 400 MB then use 4 MB piece. and I never used to use less than 16 MB piece even the file is 200 MB. you would never face seedbox crash at any part if things goes all correct. (I made 100 of experiments already, nothing I'm speaking without testing, I'm running 945 torrents in one of my seedboxes & I have added auto stop ratio group to rest other torrents along)

Another thing, while you're about to create a torrent, stop all torrents before creating a torrenting a torrent. and if your file is over 8 GB, then try to seed one torrent per 12 hours at least (24 hours recommended)

and as you're uploading torrents here, kindly read these threads and maybe any above information may help you about seeding, peers, leech thing, whose sharing your torrent's pieces to others when and how etc!. https://torrentgalaxy.org/forums.php?action=viewtopic&topicid=247 & https://torrentgalaxy.org/forums.php?action=viewtopic&topicid=383

This post, I meant to help only I have covered few things that may help you or if you are haven't aware of them, other than that didn't jump to charge this info thoughtlessly. (Peace) :)

EDITED: I completely agree with battlestar:_moderator::_male::_sitelover::_junkie: no doubt. Thanks, for making a proper example. Cheers!

You should not really be using piece sizes of 16MB for any torrent, and certainly not for one thats only 1GB in size.

Larger piece sizes are bad for torrent performance (and some clients wont even work with them at all).

Remember that the whole world is not in high speed connections, someone who can only download at a few KB/s is going to have issues with 16 MB pieces.  For example - about a third of the peers on my seedbox are downloading at < 20 KB/s (half of them at < 10KB/s) , if we do the maths on these at the middle value of 15 KB/s - thats 0.88 MB per minute, so a 16 MB piece is going to take roughly 18 - 20 minutes. If there is any error at all in those 20 or so minutes (highly likely, since slow connections are generally poorer connections) the entire piece is just discarded and you have to start all over again.

The only reason to ever use larger sizes is to keep the size of the .torrent file itself reasonable, as many sites have a limit ( usually around 1 - 2 MB ).

Connection 2 MBps - Overall Down: 240 Kbp/s & Upload: 120 KBp/s.
It's still beating 203 KBp/s (moving above as well) even the file piece is 16 MB. that's rough I think?.

No offense has given or taken, low connections are a part of this internet world, but not that low in this 2019 series, the theory is who knows who getting 10 KB from any peer and he/she did not run other torrents in the same client at a time?. it makes sense. and if 2 MB connection with overall 240 KBp/s can beat 203 (can move above to 230 as well) and stable at 190 kb/s then 1 MB can beat 90 or 110 kb/s if torrent runs alone. what it actually gives in the result that's the basic point, how many other torrents peoples running along that's their choice. your math is correct I agree, but all this large piece thing apply to above a Gig file.

No doubt, I won't disagree that you're wrong, but look the screenshot it is live and that torrent uploaded a few hours ago. anyways, 100 of peoples download all my torrents every day with 16 MB piece, all of them getting even overall bandwidth their connection provides anyone can go and ask them did they face 10 KB thing due to a large piece selection (until unless peers got connected), no slow speed complain ever reported, a bunch of them having 1 MB connection or less 512 (even that's odd nowadays), what less anyone can use after 512?  

the basic system works peer to peer, peer to seed, seed to peer. closer seeds provide the piece to another peer (that's another story) and I did not recommend 16 pieces for a less gig file, 200 MB with 16 MB that's my experiment (I shouldn't say that) all those torrents did the same deed. I'm not uploading only here.

In the end, My friend, You're correct all correct I'm not arguing with you, I might be still wrong with all that given Info? I agree yes I might be. kindly, excuses and let's close this subject, I apologize if anything has gone wrong here, Cheers :)

have a nice day/night!
Have a look at this article..

Quote:

PIECE SIZE
Piece size is the bit that can make a torrent seeded on a home connection scale well, or make even the best seeded torrent bog down. At its heart, it’s how big each piece is that is checked, and distributed, but also how much data you discard for a hash-fail. Make the pieces too few and big, and it can be very hard for a peer to get started, too many small pieces will use more of a peers connection for overhead.

It’s a delicate balance, that is not easily found. Small pieces make it less susceptible to poisoning attacks (as practiced by MediaDefender, among others) and will help a torrent deal with sudden increases in peers, by making it easy to get a piece or two to trade. However, keeping track of who has what piece requires bandwidth, and small pieces mean that you will be telling connected peers about pieces you have just got more often.

After a number of years toying around, the optimum number of pieces seems to be between 1200 and 2200. Most torrent creators will only allow piece-sizes in multiples of 16kb, so you should, with few exceptions, find a size that fits in that range. A 700Mb torrent should be 512Kb pieces (giving 1400 total) and similarly, 350Mb would be better with 256kb. A 4.5Gb torrent would have 2,250 pieces, roughly, with a 2Mb piece-size. Or 1,125 with 4Mb. Either way would be fine, but 256kb pieces would mean 17,500+ pieces, and is too many.
SOURCE: https://torrentfreak.com/how-to-make-the-best-torrents-081121/

It's and old article. But the technology hasn't changed.
Internet speed is not what dictates the optimum piece size. Very slow or very fast internet merely increases the negative effects of non-optimum piece sizes.  So going for extreme small or extreme big isn't advice-able regardless of the speeds.

hormotional

One other thing , setting your upload speed to unlimited or above whats doable for your COM
will cause (connections reset.)

piece size ...Let uTorrent auto choose size it works better
If you want to set it for India that has slow on avg speed set 512kb size
if target is USA with fast connection use 4MB size

I'm still using uTorrent version 2.2.1

Are you still experiencing those problems square:_trusted_user::_sitefriend::_sitelover::_junkie::_sun::_turtle:? For me the covers are showing and so far no errors, but I just got back to site.

Hi Angelina , i had a ratio of 1 up 2 missing but I've uploaded the pictures from another PC and they are working just fine . It could just be a temperamental morning for the old laptop.

many thanks for your swift response.

sorry to be a pain in the forum , the uploading a cover problem still persists , it's intermittent and I've tried on 2 PC's , when editing and adding a new image i hit the ' submit changes ' tab and nothing happens for an age and then it gives the bad gateway respone .

i also noted that a few regular uploaders to the music section (where i mainly upload) are also missing covers ( this might or might not have anything to do with my problem) .

this is the torrent i'm trying to put a cover into

Hi,
My upload (first) has err not done well, actually failed.
With some advice I think I have sorted the problem and need to upload the new file.
Before I do this can a staff member remove the old as per link below.
