Transmission working very slow

Postby mr.bjerre on Sun Apr 26, 2009 6:09 am

Hi.


I'm running mint 6 on my laptop. I use the default Transmission for torrents, but it is working very slow. Often it says "Data not fully available" and it reaches a maximum download rate of 50kb/s. And surfing in firefox is incredibly slow if Transmission is running!

I also have Vista installed on my laptop so I tried to use BitTorrent and here I get 300+ kb/s in download rate. and firefox is running pretty smooth meanwhile. I would rather download in linux so I was hoping that someone could help me?


Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Strangegly I find reports about problems with mtu - may be your problem too

Nope that didn't solve the problem. My mtu was set to automatic and changing it to 1492 didn't make a difference...

Any other suggestions?

I also had problems with transmission.
I tried to download Debian CD.(some 700 mb).
My usual download speed is about 220kbps and transmission started to download the file at about 200kbps and said that the download will end within 2 hrs.
But even at downloading at that speed to reduce 1 minute of expected download time it would take about 3 minutes.
I dont understand why it is doing it. Checking its statistics i found that it has downloaded more then the actual file size i am downloading. In the end it took about 6 hrs to download the CD.
After that i changed to Deluge for torrents.

It's hard to solve things like that if you don't sit in front of the computer and can test different alternatives
Try to install some other torrent app like Deluge or Frostwire - both found in the Software manager
It might be something with Transmission that's not working out as it should

By the way, Deluge was the answer. It works like a charm
