Ktorrent consumes between 78% and 95% of CPU load. It's normal? I have a 2GHz CPU with 1Gb of RAM.
Euhm, that seems a bit much ? Does it improve if you set no download limits ?
No, I normally don't set any download limits.
I mean download and upload limits ? Just set no limits at all and see what the CPU usage is.
Yes, I understood, I set no limits at all, and the CPU usage (after a few minuts) is near 90%
I am trying this right now. And I don't know why, but now ktorrent consumes "only" 45% of the CPU (ok, is still too much, but isn't 90%)
How fast are you actually downloading ?
200~250 kb/s in average, but that depends on what so popular is torrent.
A lot of CPU usage, for those speeds.
Yes, I know.
Right now, I am downloading Ubuntu Feisty DVD at 188.3 kB/s in average with a CPU usage of 25% by Ktorrent.
