    Yabc here. Speeds are average. But its bittornado with more control of each torrent. It seems though that i am always uploading faster than i download and that bothers me. I wish they could be symmetric.

    You probably had no upload cap before. ABC might have configured it for you.

    If you really like ABC that much, though, you should make the jump to BitComet. It's a lot better than ABC.

    I use Azeurus and boxtorrents.

    Edit: I don't know where people got the idea that azeurus is a hog:


    I have circled some apps with large amounts of ram in use to show that things run fine even with all of this. I crank out about 150cands/day in d2ol and am able to play guild wars while running all of these with only 1gb of RAM.

    D2OL uses about 65mb for me, so this should give you a good idea of how much it uses.

    abc client movie sized files usually finish in aobut 4-6 hours, record is 27minx 850 gig divx.

    but i guess one of hte top ten rules of the int0rw3b is clear when ti states not to count your torrents before they download

    Well, you do realize that javaw.exe is the Java Runtime Enviornment that Azureus uses to execute... right?

    That's why people say it's a hog.

    Although, I think the usage on your JRE is about 65% attributed to Azureus and the other 35% is attributed to D2oL, which consequently uses JRE too.


    As for all of you ABC users... I really don't see the appeal... other than the remote operation feature. You should really try BitComet, though. It has a feature that pulls peer lists from other peers, so that you always have a sufficient amount of people to download the file from.

    Someone mentioned Peerguardian2 earlier... I wouldn't recommend that at all. I tried using it, ended up with it using 70-80% of the CPU when it had lots of connections.

    Oh, and I also use Azureus, and Piratebay for finding torrents.

    That's true for PeerGuardian Lite and PeerGuardian... but the latest version of PeerGuardian 2 is actually very resource consciencious. I haven't seen it use processor resources unless it's updating the blocklists, and it only uses 2MB of ram.

    You can even reduce resource usage by having it parse the addresses by range and have it omit the name lookup.

    Abc's newest version has a memory leak, over 400k mem usage after being left on over night. So untill that is resolved in there next build back to Azureus I go.

    Even with a memory leak, ABC's footprint is a lot smaller than Azureus'.

    You might want to give BitComet a shot.

    Traces of Cydoor and other spyware have been found buried in the installation. There's a "lite" version that cleans it up, but it's rarely updated... so I wouldn't even bother with it.

    Furthermore, the Exeem protocol is not entirely decentrallized like the developer said it would be. It still requires a central server to connect to other peers and search for downloads, which can be monitored more easily than a regular tracker.

    I think you have your units of measure a little mixed up. The unit "k" in reference to memory is always construed as kilobytes, which is how I read it.

    I'm assuming you meant 400MB(400k or ~400,000 kilobytes), in which case I find that kinda hard to believe to be a natural occurrance.

    The only other possible way(besides a virus) that it could bloat internally like that is if the files you're downloading and hashing are all over 2GB... and you would have to be downloading a few of them.

    In this case, I would advise you to schedule the downloads so that only one is active at a time. Not only will this potentially fix the resource usage, but it'll improve download speed, because bandwidth isn't allocated among downloads.


    However, as I said before, ABC pales in comparison to BitComet... so you should just use that instead.

    KingGuru, BitTornado. It's written in Python which is pretty fast. There's absolutely millions of configuration options too. Azeurus sucks, mainly because it uses Java (which sucks), and it tries to mimic the interface of just about every p2p client out there. BitTornado is nice and compact.

    i used to use azureus but got fed up with it hogging resources. tried bitcomet and bit tornado but they always seemed to download real slow and i tested it out by trying the same torrent on all 3 clients and azureus always downloaded at twice the speed of the other 2 ( they never seemed to go above 25-30 kb\s) trying bitlord now.. looks exactly the same as bitcomet ( both c++ ) maybe a modded version of it i dont care to find out really and its getting ok speeds. just glad i only use it to find old stuff which isnt on newsgroups or it would drive me mad dl at them speeds all the time
