First I want to say that Enhanced-CTorrent is simply the absolute BEST client around!!!!

I use NSLU2 UnSLung 6.10 Enhanced-CTorrent dnh3.3.2 ctcs 1.4.1

With one or more torrents downloading from high speed seeders running CTCS set all torrents Shared-DL and Minimum-DL Maximum-DL set to 0 [ 0 to disable/remove a limit ] and global bandwidth set plenty high enough to accommodate.

What happens is that after an indeterminate period of time ( typically 30 minutes to several hours) one ( or more ) torrent(s) will slow to 8kB/s or less. IF now disable Shared-DL on all and set Current.Limit-DL to 0s the download speeds are OK.

If set to Shared-DL on any of the slowed/stalled torrent the 8kB/s limit returns. Backed to disabled Shared-DL download speed OK again.

This has been confirmed over a period of several months on 2 separate NSLU2s at different locations/IP providers and different trackers.

The UpLoad dynamic management has never encountered any problems.

With Shared-DL on and setting the Minimum-DL to anything greater than 8kB/s always results in an 8kB/s or less speed with any of the slowed torrents.

With Shared-DL off and setting the Current.Limit-DL to anything greater than 8kB/s always results in an 8kB/s speed or less with any of the slowed torrents.

    The UpLoad dynamic management encounters nearly identical problems. ** FIX is the same as for DL; Disable Shared-UL on all and set Current.Limit-UL to 0s the and upload speeds are OK.
