MWhite111 had trouble on 08 Jan 2007
At the start of this month I started to wonder if my ISP was properly recording my bandwith usage. I did a search for a program to log my internet activity and found SurplusMeter. I have used it for a week or so now and have been very happy up until today. (I found out that my ISP and my internet acitivty was in sync I had just calculated some things wrong.)

Today I went to my ISP to check out my bandwith and noticed a rather large discrepency between my ISP and SurplusMeter (more than 3GB difference). I brought up SurplusMeter and noticed that the "bytes up/down" figures weren't moving even though I was actively downloading/uploading several files. It was like SurplusMeter had just stopped. I wasn't sure what to do, so I paused it and then restarted it--SurplusMeter than began to register my uploads/downloads. Anyone else have this problem?

I'm on a G4 running 10.3.9

Thanks for the response. I figures out the problem.
It was just a matter of jumping on lightly supported
(few peers) torrents at the end of their life. When
I got on a torrent early that a lot of peers my upload
speed took off -- in excess of 74k!

Thanks again for the suggestions.

I'm a newbie when it comes to P2P networks.
After reading a number of reviews of bittorent
clients I decided to use Azureus. For the most
part it has worked quite well -- I was able to
overcome a NAT problem and now everything is
all green dots and smilies.

I have one problem however, my upload speeds
are generally very low. Sometimes much lower
(only 10% of) the swarm average when downloading
a torrent. I've read through all the relevant FAQ's
provided by Azureus but I can't seem to figure it
out. Even when I'm done downloading a torrent
and I'm only seeding my upload rate is very low
(I have my upload cap set at 40kB/s and I never
come close, uploading maybe 5kB/s or so.)

How can a fix this problem? I want to maintain a
"1" ration on the sites I use.
