Tixati EXTREMELY slow.

by Guest on 2017/02/11 12:58:39 AM    
I've spent the last couple of weeks trying to tweak Tixati to improve the download speeds. I'm sure this is one of the most commonly asked questions, and indeed in my searches I've found many posts about speed, but none of the solutions have solved the problem for me.

I have a 100 Mbit down and 40 Mbit up fiber connection. I've capped my upload traffic it 1.0 mbit, so it's not causing the problem. (That's only 4.0% of my available bandwidth).

I try to download the Linuxmint cinnamon x64 ISO. 1.81gb.

On another bittorrent client it hits 10 MBs download speed within 60 - 90 seconds, and will sit around 8-10 MBs for the duration of the transfer.

On Tixati, the transfer speed only gets to 350KBs after about 15 minutes. For the for first 10 mins it will sit at around 130 - 150KBs

I've also noticed that the other client will almost always have between 700 - 800 DHT nodes connected, whereas Tixati only has just over 400

At present, Tixati is running at all defaults.

I've ventured through these posts in search of a soluition..

Just to name a couple.

Can any one shed any light?

I have this problem with version 2.51
It was faster on previous versions but this version is so slow. I don't know how to tweak the settings.
Network -> Connection has many parameters and I don't know which one to change for my situations. Previous versions worked perfectly by default settings but whether I choose default or change the settings it's not as fast as it was.

And please it is not something to do with internet connection and the torrent. My whole bandwidth is limited and I am downloading torrents with so many seeders with seedbox. In previous versions I was using my whole bandwidth with such torrents but now I can't download with maximum speed.

It must be something to do when number of peers when it's high! It connects faster to the peers, which is a good thing, but does not use the whole bandwidth to download.

Right now, I am reducing the number of my connections in each torrent in order to download faster.

Please fix this annoying problem.

Go to bandwith. Set incomming to 9999999 until it takes no more 9'z. Set outgoing to 500. Works like a charm. Viceverse for uploading.

Update as suggested by developers and/or avoid huge channels unless necessary. See 2.57 info.
