View Full Version : Transmission - nuking my internet connection



Kuma
5th November 2007, 04:17 PM
Ever since installing Leopard.. transmission has been doing 2 things...

downloading at insane speeds which is cool:thumbup:
but after about 5 - 10 minutes my internet gets nuked :thumbdn:

I have to quit, force quit transmission, wait a few moments and then my net comes back.

anybody got some ideas on how to avoid this...

I have throttled download speeds to a mild 200kbs, but even that doesn't seem to be enough...

even when not downloading (just sharing) my connection will cark it.:confused:

(I have tried many things and Transmission definitely seems to be the cause)

It's likely your router can't handle the number of connections being opened by Transmission to facilitate such rapid downloads.

Either slow it right down, or get a new router.
I've seen it before... I can say the iiNet Belkin 4 port router is fine, and so is the Linksys WRT54GL (running DD-WRT) is fine.

no - was fine before

my speeds are the same - just the nets bombing out

One of the big 'features' of 10.5 is a dramatically increased threading capability for managing concurrent open connections. Prior to 10.5, your BT client would try and open as many as possible, the OS would 'rotate' many of them. With 10.5, it will try to open and hold open each connection socket, regardless.

The end result is that your router inevitably overloads. Limit your client to hold a maximum of 200 concurrent connections.

Limit your client to hold a maximum of 200 concurrent connections.
Note that the current version of Transmission limits you to 200 total connections by default.

I noticed the exact same thing this morning!

I actually used to use Azureus and was having similar problems but worse, as in it was crashing the whole computer...so I switched to Transmission which is a good thing coz it is a heaps better program!

Thanks for the help Brains! :D

Ditto here. I run a couple of torrents with at most a dozen connections each, yet I can't even browse the internet while they are running. Insane. Bloody fast downloading though.

By the way, the developer is on our chat network. I'm going to bug him about it.

I thought transmissions limited the number of connections to only 60. A router must be especially pathetic to not handle that small number.
Although perhaps as tcn33 says it's been upped to 200.
What router is this? I got my airport extreme to handle a lot more connections by disabling IPv6.

Am using Port 9090 and Automatically map port.

Leopard firewall turned off.

Precisely what happened to me on Thursday night!

Downloaded 2GB in about 2 hours (awesome huh), 350-400k/s. Came back to my computer a little while later and the connection was kaput. I thought it was an Internode issue but no - had to do a factory reset on my router (Billion 7400G) to resolve this.

DJY: I'd pick a port number at the 50000+ mark if I were you. Less likely to be blocked by trackers etc.

I just installed 0.92 and it stopped nuking my internet connection.

Do I need to do anything at the DLink end if I change to a high end port?
I tried a few in the range suggested previously - only to have them all blocked / stealth / or mapping errors.

The router I was speaking about above was a D-Link. Once I got rid of it, the problem was solved. I'd *highly* recommend the Linksys WRT54GL available from places like Warcom for under $90.

I have been getting the same error with my 502T

But I think my ISP has been throttling torrents too as it is a widespread problem over at WP with this provider :mad:

On a side note, can anyone reccomend a wireless router that will support the 'n' protocol?
Would be great if it also had gigabit ethernet too :D

I'm using a Netcomm 1300+4 and having similar problems with torrent's taking forever to start downloading (if they start at all) and if a torrent does download other network apps are slower.

Granted the latest (as of this post) nightly, 3730, is better... But some improvement is still needed to bring back to how it was pre-Leopard.

Currawong
7th November 2007, 09:51 AM
While the issue is in full swing on your computer, can you type this in the terminal and paste the output here:

lsof -i -n | grep Trans | wc -l

It lists open files, internet connections only, searches for "Trans" then does a line count. Should show you how many connections have been opened by Transmission.

The model of your modem/router would be good too.

Yeah, I'm on 10.4.10. I opened Transmission last night and got an auto-update message, which installed v0.91, once I installed and relaunched I found Safari couldn't load any web pages.
I'll try v0.92 tonight.

BTW. I also installed the latest Quicktime and iTunes updates prior to updating Transmission so maybe the problem could be in these... but unlikely.

EDIT: On 0.91 I didn't find downloads to be blisteringly fast. In fact, I thought it had slowed down. I went to bed when it said it would take 4+ hours to download a 350Mb file - erm, distro :cool:

7th November 2007, 10:58 AM
Not all D-Links are crap, my DGL-4300 doesn't miss a beat with three torrent clients from three separate machines (hundreds of connections.) Personally, I've found 0.92 + Leopard to be great! Much faster and I haven't experienced any data-loss or instability...

7th November 2007, 11:00 AM

A week or so ago i updated to 0.90 then 0.91 and ever since i have a weird issue with it stopping all the time and then......worse still it will NOT see the 3-4 gig i've already downloaded and start up from about 10 MB !!!

This happened to me several times.

I have since given up on Transmission (shame because I really do like it..)

and gone back to Azureus..

21 torrents seeding with Transmission.

Running the latest nightly (3747) and Leopard-related bugs still remain:

Slowed network while torrents are looking for peers and peers taking an extremely long time to be found. Along with flakey speeds once peers are found.

Edit: Additionally, torrents that previously worked (all from the same tracker) before installing Leopard now simply report "Tracker hasn't responded yet. Retrying..." in the torrent. The message log simply repeats that same error over and over. And yes, the tracker is still up and functioning. Heh.

Latest nightly build (0.93 r3806) seems to work for me!
WOOHOO!

I'm very glad to have Transmission back - didn't like using Azureus / Vuze!
Current speed is back to normal.

I received a notification by MacUpdate saying 0.93 was available - which pointed to a 404 Error.
The user comments though pointed me to the nightly build website - and I grabbed that one!
Official website still lists 0.92 has latest - but 0.93 is working!

Yepp - I pulled "0.93" last night... wasn't the proper build.


We've just released the real 0.93.

Transmission 0.93 is available for download here (http://transmission.m0k.org/download.php) or via Sparkle.

0.93 (2007/11/12):
- Fix "router death" bug that impaired internet connectivity
- Fix bug that could cause good peer connections to be lost
- Tweak request queue code to improve download speeds
- Better handling of very large files on 32bit systems
- Consume less battery power on laptops
- Fix minor IPC parsing error

Unfortunately I'm still having issues getting a torrent to actually find peers and download.

And yes, there are seeders available. :P

On the plus side, when running Transmission (r3818) I other network activities are no longer dog-slow. So great work on that front. :)

grfxninja
13th November 2007, 07:54 PM

13th November 2007, 08:35 PM
I'm actually having the opposite problem - 0.92 was fine but 0.93 seems to be hogging bandwidth. Just one of many mystery issues I've come across in the last week or so :(

Bart Smastard
14th November 2007, 08:47 AM
Installed 0.93 last night and found internet was fine but download was dreadfully slow; best speed was 28kb/s. The file had 3000+ seeders. Port 9090 is opened on my router.

markh
14th November 2007, 09:10 AM
I'm finding transmission rarely connects to many seeds compared to say azureus. Started something off this morning and transmission would only do a max of 0.8Kbs and connected to one seeder (on and off). azureus connected to both seeders and a steady rate of 15Kbs. Using port 9090 via the automapping for the airport extreme basestation. Using the lastest released build 0.93

doughnut
20th November 2007, 04:35 PM
Unfortunately the last few nightly's are suffering from the same issues - taking forever to actually find peers and start downloading.

Also, the last couple of nightly's (from around 3850) have picked up a new bug. Locking up every few minutes for about 15 seconds or so. I believe this issue has gone away after a period of time. But can't confirm that at this point.

And the "Tracker hasn't responded yet. Retrying..." message continue to fill up the Message Log. On a tracker that is working fine.

Blades
18th December 2007, 09:32 AM
I'm finding that Transmission speeds are low with few peers, whereas I open the same torrent in BitTyrant or Azureus and I might connect to triple the number of peers and get speeds of up to 200k+.

I had one point where Transmission wasn't downloading anything on 6 torrents. Closed Transmission, opened the torrents in Azureus and they started hammering down. It's almost like Transmission can't see all the peers that Azureus can? Is that possible?

For example a torrent running at the moment:
Transmission: 7 of 50 peers - 8.6 down, 0k up (I've got the up set to 50k)
Bityrant : 19 Seeds, 30 Peers - 26k down, 60k up

I've got ADSL2+ as well, but it's about a 4Mb connection. I've also got the port open, so both programs are getting little green circles :)

Just upgraded to 0.96, running 10.5.1 so will see how that goes. In the meantime, has anyone else had similar experience?

Currawong
18th December 2007, 10:00 AM
It's because Azureus connects to a distributed tracker system that can find more peers for the same torrent, such as if it's been uploaded to many sites.

Yes, I'm having the same problem (and possibly with the same file ;)). I noticed it last week and also compared it with Azureus (are you living in my parallel universe?), except I found that the download was at the same pathetic rate.

I'm on Optus cable and was beginning to wonder if they had throttled back torrent downloads. They've been rubbish for weeks now :confused:

markh
18th December 2007, 10:17 AM

arkenstone
18th December 2007, 11:22 AM
I'll jump on the bandwagon here. maxing out at around 110k for stuff in Transmission but getting 500k+ in uTorrent on a Windows box.

18th December 2007, 11:43 AM
I've had to stop using Transmission, unfortunately. It downloads just fine (some of the time - waffles is OK but TV torrent speeds are rubbish) but it doesn't seed at all so my ratios have gone to hell. Back to resource-hogging bloatware Azureus for me :(

Currawong
18th December 2007, 12:46 PM
I guess noone reads my posts. ;)

Azureus (I don't know about other programs) connects to a distributed tracker system that finds other peers, not just ones from the tracker the torrent is from. Transmission doesn't have this system.

tcn33
18th December 2007, 01:18 PM
I guess noone reads my posts. ;)
No, I did see that but I don't think it's the issue in my case. Transmission actually downloads faster in some cases than Azureus, particularly with waffles (up to 1.25MB/s). Uploading is the problem - Transmission doesn't upload at all. I don't see why the lack of a distributed tracker system would have less than zero impact to downloads but completely disable uploading.

Jaffa
18th December 2007, 02:27 PM
I have this same problem with leopard, altoigh it happens with just about any download. When I start downloading a file it hogs the Internet connection and any other app or even the same app gets shit slow speeds, and by slow I mean 0.05KB/s.

19th December 2007, 02:46 PM
I've given up on Transmission, for the moment.

I'm now using BitTyrant (http://bittyrant.cs.washington.edu/) which is a modified version of Azureus, for some reason it doesn't seem as much of a memory hog a the real Azureus, and nowhere near as bad a version 3.0.

Blades
19th December 2007, 05:52 PM
yeah I Was using BitTyrant, but it's going crazy with the auto speed settings. Also it kernal panic'ed my machine a couple of days ago like Azureus does.

Admittedly I did get some *cough* "TV-based Linux applications" ;) down and they were able to peak out at 150k. Azureus and BitTyrant would probably have gotten them faster, but the entire system crashes are they thing that puts me off :(

Is it possible for Transmission to be updated to access peers like Azureus does? (To increase the number it connects to)

DVD Plaza
19th December 2007, 06:56 PM
It's because Azureus connects to a distributed tracker system that can find more peers for the same torrent, such as if it's been uploaded to many sites.That's not the only reason.

Most torrents ban Transmission, no matter where you go or how hard you try your listing of peers in Transmission will NEVER show some clients because Transmission is blacklisted.

When BitRocket ditched the use of Transmissions libraries and went libtorrent instead I jumped over to that. Transmission's performance in terms of peers and speeds are an absolute disgrace in comparison.

Shame as I love Transmissions interface - but BitRocket certainly comes an impressive second. Everything else is a very, very, very, vvvvveeeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyy distant third.

Kernel panics :eek: I'd think about doing a fresh install of OS X, that really doesn't sound right. Although I'm still on 10.4.11, so maybe that's a Leopard thing, but I'd find that hard to imagine.

Very true, certainly earlier versions of Transmission were blacklisted.

Strangely enough, I've only noticed the problem where Transmission fails to pick up anything recently (in the last few mini-releases), up until then I'd been a happy Transmission user. Speed of download doesn't really worry me, but when Transmission doesn't find any seeds/peers and Azureus does, time to jump ship.

Agreed about the Transmission interface, I'd much rather use it than the Azureus one.

My ratios have remained poor in the last few versions of Transmission...
can't get an open Incoming TCP POrt either - despite several night randomly putting numbers in it... still seems to download though

What port most people using? Maybe this might help my ratios...
although maybe it has to do with some sites not picking up or accepting Transmission?

The port is a port you need to open to the outside world and forward to whatever PC you're on. If you're using an ADSL modem/router dudad you almost certainly have to open and forward a port there.

Entering random numbers isn't going to help.



although maybe it has to do with some sites not picking up or accepting Transmission?

The client is irrelevant in this case.

i was hoping for an answer to this too (slow d/l) :confused:. I noted a new thread... (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/showthread.php?t=43309)

Transmission still nukes my connection (1.02). I was planning to upgrade to 1.04 as soon as my quota ticks over again, though I am seriously considering going back to Azuereus...

If you're finding bugs, report them and keep up to date with the latest version -always-.

I had the whole router killing bug of yesteryear, and they fixed it with a point update. Give 1.04 a shot, then 1.05, .06 etc. The Transmission chaps are always improving this client, so upgrading is always going to be beneficial.

The "seeding" is still stuffed in the latest release.. like it has been for MANY versions.

The older releases of Transmission under Leopard will kill the Internet connection if it makes over 500 connections.

I've had problems with Transmission causing unexpected kernel panics during the night, while it is downloading stuff.

They brought out an updated version which seems to solve the problem as I haven't had a panic again. (touch wood).

Mind you, before the updated version they said it was "updated for Leopard" but obviously not updated enough. What do you want for free software? It's free! You can't complain...

Xtorrent uses the same engine as Transmission, and attracts a cost.

I also have had seeding problems in the last few versions...
but touch wood this latest one seems to be seeding ok for me?!?!

Will have to watch though to see if my 'credits' get recorded, as previous versions when it has seeded they don't seem to have counted.
