Ragazzi vorrei farvi una domanda...
Uso come programma per scaricare torrent "utorrent" e devo dire che mi trovo molto bene.
Mi chiedo solo una cosa...ho letto che il valore "ratio" dovrebbe sempre essere superiore a 1.
In questo momento io ho 3 download attivi, e nessuno di questi supera 0,6!
In tutto ciò però il download va benissimo....prendo velocità che con emule mi sognavo (160kb/s non mi sembrano pochi!)....
Qualcuno ha una spiegazione?
A cosa serve "ratio"?

Ratio = quantità dati scaricati / dati uploadati. Se il tuo tracker controlla la ratio, è bene che lasci scaricare agli altri alemno la stessa quantità di dati che hai scaricato tu. Anche se non lo controlla, è bene comunque lasciare il client in upload almeno un paio di ore al giorno per permettere agli altri di usufruire della tua banda. Come al solito, basta uno sforzo di tre secondi per trovare quello che cerchi in rete:


Because BitTorrent relies on the upstream bandwidth of its users — and the more users, the more aggregate bandwidth is available for sharing the files — it is considered good etiquette to leave one's BitTorrent client open after downloading has completed so that others may continue to gain from the file that has been distributed.
It is not clear, however, how long one should leave their client open after downloading has finished. Many clients report the byte traffic upstream as well as down, so the user can see how much they have contributed back to the network. Some clients also report the "share ratio", a number relating the amount of data uploaded to the amount downloaded. It is generally considered good form to at least share back the equivalent amount of traffic as the original file size.
It is worth noting that the requirement of a "1.00" share ratio (uploading as much data as you have downloaded) is rather hotly contested given its relative impossibility to achieve for every person. On any given torrent, the best possible outcome is the original seeder with an infinite ratio (having only uploaded data and never downloaded any data), a number of peers with 1.00 ratios (having downloaded the file, uploaded just as much data, and then promptly logged off), and two users with a .50 ratio (the last two having each downloaded a separate half of the file and then shared their half with the other). This is highly unlikely to be achieved due to the very small chance of the last two peers downloading completely opposite halves and finishing just as the last seeder logged off and the fact that not all people will upload the same amount of data they downloaded as some will upload less and others will upload more. Ultimately, a perfect torrent would leave two end users with only a .50 ratio for the torrent, which means every user would have to provide new content at least equal to the portion of data they did not get to upload in the last torrent to maintain an overall ratio of 1.00.
While it's highly unlikely that all users who download a given torrent will achieve a 1.0 ratio on it (because the net ratio of all users is 1.0, if any user uploads past 1.0 some other user will have to sustain a lower ratio), it is more of a guideline to encourage the average upstream of a given network. Some networks, for example, prevent access to new torrents for the first 24-48 hours that the torrent is active to people with overall ratios of less than 1.0 and a certain amount of data uploaded.
The amount of time the client is left open may be more important than the amount of traffic contributed, since new users attempting to download a file will first need to find peers hosting the file.
Many advanced trackers now track statistics such as how many seeders and downloaders were on a torrent at the time of a user's disconnect as many consider this information more important than just the user's ratio of downloaded/uploaded.
