#3832 closed Bug (invalid)

Transmission is using two times the upload limit

Reported by: 133794m3r Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.03
Severity: Normal Keywords:


As stated transmission is using two times the upload bandwith as it's supposed to. I just went and got the pioneer one series and i was wondering why it was so slow once i started it up. It is limited to 25KB/s but it uses 45-55KB/s and seems to do a little more than two times it no matter what i've done. Peer limit per torrent 15, overall 95, but i don't see an option to reduce active files but right now it's only 7 active torrents. I've closed all other applications that _might_ be using the internet sans transmission and it seems to be the culprit. I'm going to go attempt to build 2.13 to see how it works and i hope that the issue isn't present there.

i just built 2.13 and it's still doing the same thing. I think it may be something within transmission itself. So it's in there in 2.03 and 2.13( i just built it from source) and it's still using 2x it's upper limit according to the system monitor transmission is using only 26-27KB/s

This issue has been reported before on the Ubuntu bug tracker. In that ticket I did considerable research showing how well (or how poorly) the different BitTorrent? clients stick to their speed limits.

Each screenshot shows a different bittorrent client downloading the same Ubuntu ISO torrent with speed capped at 15 KB/s both ways, next to a gnome-system-monitor showing overall network use. As a visual aid I've added a horizontal green line showing the "ideal" of where a constant 15 KB/s would lie on each g-s-m network graph.

My conclusion then was that there is a lot of fluctuation inherent in the system, and that all bittorrent clients are affected by it. Even so, Transmission seemed to be the least affected by it.

So if there's a regression here, I'll need some more information to go with the bug report. Could you run your system through a similar benchmark?
