Thread: Speeds In Shareaza.

  1. #1
    Ok what is up with the speeds in shareaza. It says i'm uploading to one person at 40 kb/s. and another a 80 kb/s. My max upload is 15k. Thats impossible. I'm using the lastest beta so is that the problem. That it's a beta. I was just downloading a 2 meg song and it was going at 40k and it said it would take 20 minutes. Ok what is up with this speed measurements.

    speeds in shareaza are kilobits/sec (kb/sec)
    speed of your upload is 15 kilobytes/sec (k/sec)
    your connection is therefore (15*8) 120kb/sec

    this can be a little confusing...

    umm yes very confusing. a little more detail. I have dsl and i download about 135 to 140 kilobyes a second and i upload about 15 to 17 kilobytes a second max.

    oh hmm i see. the speeds in shareaza are measure in kilobits and not kilobytes? I&#39;ve never heard of kilobites. I thought it was bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, terabytes, petabytes.... What is a bit? I thought bits is what is being processed like by a processor.

    1 byte = 8 bits

    Problem solved.

    yeah i found that out as soon as i found out that the kb that it was telling me wasn&#39;t kilobytes and was kilobites. I figured they had an option to change that. thanks for your help.

    i was so confused i was like wtf i don&#39;t upload no 80kb/s. Hmm i guess i need to read up a little bit more on binary digits. I thought it had to be 7 numbers. I guess thats just with machine code.
