Reddit: Deluge - is it normal for my seeding torrents to be mostly inactive?

Saturday 21st of March 2015 09:04:36 AM

I'm a new Deluge user and wanted to give back a bit to the community by seeding some FOSS torrents.

I have been seeding 3 popular torrents for around 11 hours, RaspberryPi Noobs, raspian-wheezy and Ubuntu 14.10 desktop and each has uploaded 98MB, 4MB and 11MB respectively. 99% of the time, there is simply no upload activity and when there is occasional activity, it's only like 10-20KB/s.

I've had a look though some thread online about similar symptoms and tried changing the various network/bandwidth/queue settings but nothing seems to really help.

Am I doing something wrong or is this normal behaviour for seeding torrents?

The difficult bit is creating and maintaining a community that ensures long term continuity of the project, especially as some contributors leave and new ones enter. But getting the code out in a way that could be useful to others is easy.
