Disk overload

if you want to run some type of torrent system, may i suggest you look at a web based one for your server, possibly torrentflux, you would need a base install of a linux os, apache, php, sql, or cheat and use a panel like plesk or cpanel.

And yeah, Id agree, really I think people would pay a few more pounds a month for some more ram
Id pay in a heart beat

also, you say you tried utorrent under wine, try installing ktorrent (linux clone for utorrent) you may get some better results out of that

you have to remember the cpu/ram are pretty limited on kimsufi ranges, from the specs OVH posted for the kimsfu and having a good look at my own kimsufi server, you can't really expect to get much out of them.

also have to remember what the o/s requirements are for ram, as this is a big factor.

I personally think that the kimsufi range is not really any good for torrenting, would be great for small email server or dns servers, but for property application hosting ect, it would really require 512mb of ram.

Just my 2 cents worth

I tried it, and yeah the problem goes away. However, my uTorrent just crashes after couple of minutes downloading over 6MB/s. Also I noticed the speeds are a little slower, not much.

So does that mean that you uncheck all the boxes pretty much?

That option doesn't exist in the newer versions of uTorrent.
Is there a command to type in there? Also, what is the cause of this behavior?

Thanks guys.

First off thanks SO MUCH for the free Kimsufi!

Ive been testing torrenting different linux distros using both fedora as well as Windows server. Using wine + utorrent in fedora and uTorrent natively in windows.

As soon as the download speeds exceed 4-5MB/s for more than 30sec, I start getting disk overloaded message at the bottom of the uTorrent. Once it reaches 100% (after 10sec), the speeds start throttling all the way down to crawling speeds. Not sure if the disk can't keep up with the writing speeds, or it's because of the lack of RAM.

The uploads are also never maxing out for some reason. The highest ive seen uploading Ubuntu torrent was about 5ish MB/s .

Anyone have the solution for disk overload in uTorrent?
