Thread: Low speeds on Vectoral seedbox?

  1. #1
    I recently purchased a $30/month server from vectoral with these specs:

    • Intel® Pentium™ III 733 MHZ
    • 256MB DDR-RAM
    • 10GB 7.2K RPM IDE-HDD
    • 500GB Bandwidth
    This was just a test server and is seeding very slowly, like 10kb/s most of the time (my own connection is faster). It's also very slow to add new torrents and manage stuff in TorrentFlux. I'm thinking of getting the $100/month server with these specs:

    • AMD Athlon™ 2800+
    • 1536MB DDR-RAM
    • 2 x 120GB 7.2K RPM IDE-HDD
    • 3000GB Bandwidth
    If I get this server, is it going to seed way faster? I need to know how fast a server like this is going to seed and how many torrents it can handle,.

    What were the download speeds like?

    Download speeds are anywhere from 10-50kb/s but I think it depends on the number of seeders there.

    Although the server has a 100mbit ethernet port, it is limited by the speed of the swarm on the torrent you are seeding, if you only have a few peers connected and they are low speed peers then data transfer is going to be slow.

    Have you ever tried to download/upload some test files to other servers ?

    And see if torrent port is blacklisted in iptables ?

    Story checks out.

    Use any one of the speedtests on the internet to verify the speed that your box is capable of before upgrading to a higher costing plan. I have vectoral for one of my servers and have no problems hitting 10mb/s and upwards...now the hard drive keeping up...thats a different story.

    Most likely, as Artemis said, there just arent enough people connecting to you. On a 0day site, grab a poplar file right after it is dropped...I am sure you will see fast speeds then.

    i have the $80 plan at vectoral and here's my speedtest

    I can get around 10mb up or down, i set up a guys server and couldn't figure out why it was hanging all the time, but i'm guessing it's because he has the slower hardware cause i don't have problems like that

    Well the server seems to be extremely slow trying to upload and manage torrents through torrentflux. Takes 1-2 minutes just to upload a torrent file and start seeding. I'm thinking the 256mb RAM is nowhere near enough to handle the 100+ torrents im trying to manage. so im going to test the $100/month server just to see if it makes much difference.

    not normal, i have this one :
    Zephyr by

    Pre-order only!

    • Intel® Pentium™ IV 2.4 GHZ
    • 1024MB DDR-RAM
    • 80GB 7.2K RPM IDE-HDD
    • 3000GB Bandwidth
    and i get 11mb/s upload speed

    maybe you have the disk overloaded problem (if the disk is overloaded you will seed @ 10-0.1kb/s lol)
    Vectoral FTW!
