So about 3 hours ago, I noticed a weird phenomenon occurring on one of my servers that is running torrents.
After uploading a decent size pack, the bandwidth would fluctuate between 70kb/s and 8mb/s and is still doing this. I have no clue what is causing it. I have tried rebooting my server, matching all the settings on it, and still to no avail.
That is what it looks like. There are multiple torrents going atm, but the main pack is causing those peaks every 8 seconds or so. Normally, on a pack I will be doing 8-10mb/s steady....but it is almost as if traffic shaping is in effect on my box.
What makes me think it isnt though is that a few friends with boxes through the same provider, arent having the issue. Plus this started randomly a few hours ago. It was working perfectly fine until then.
I have spent about 2 hours trying to figure out how to fix it...if it is fixable...so now im seeing if anyone else has ever seen this on a dedicated server before with utorrent 1.7.7 running.
A few peers will connect, seeding for me will spike to normal 8mb/s ish...then they will disconnect.
Maybe they all happen to be comcast users? Thats what I thought at first...but 2 were seedboxes.
