    Can the Kimsufi handle many torrents at once with its 256mb ram? I want a seedbox which can handle many torrents at one time, and I am just worried that a Kimsufi may crash or disk overload. If so, which of the other OVH 100mbit servers would be good?

    You only get disk overload when you download too fast, slow the download speed down if it worries you, it is the best value 100/100 box there is without doubt.

    If all you need is a ratio boost, it will be perfect and you don't need to spend any more than what the kimisurf offers.

    If you intend to become an uploader, then maybe you need a bigger box.
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    Will the low ram affect the box when it is seeding many torrents?

    You have to be from certain countries to get ovh. I would go ovh if I could but I can't :\

    It may do when there are "too many", but as to exactly what that figure is I do not know, and I have never come across it myself and have not heard of it doing so either from the many others that have the kimisurf.

    I used to have a 256MB seedbox and I didn't get much disk overload, most of the time, download speed was ~8MB/s. But when seeding more than several torrents, like maybe in the 7 - 10 bracket, it would just stop all torrents and say theres no RAM left or something along those lines. It usually happened to me when seeding like 6 torrents and downloading one or two quickly, so just try to keep long term seeding on your home connection
    Also depends on how big the files are, maybe you can seed a couple hundred torrents containing a few pictures and only a few 1080p movies at one time.
    Was using Linux on mine, so I have no idea on the figures for Windows...
