View Full Version : bittorrent client + p2p safety

20th July 2006, 11:48 PM
Anyone recommend a good graphical torrent client (aside from azureus)?

Specifically Azureus chews thru system resources like no tommorrow esp. with safepeer on.

WHich brings me to a related note: anyone got any recommendations on IP blockers etc. in conjunction w/ the client recommendation above -

the reason I've stuck w/ azureus is its safepeer plugin (which only runs on azureus, doesn't affect other network traffic), and also the telnet plugin (I SSH into my box and then telnet to localhost for remote torrent control).

The only one I know with blacklists is Azureus. Yes, it's a resource hog. Yes, it has some crazy cool features.

tell me about it - sometimes it chews over 700Mb of memory (200 real, 500 virtual) and keeps my CPU grinding at 90% for minutes on end!!!!!!!

The blacklist does make things significantly worse, but I don't really get why - 150,000 IP addresses (32 bits) = around half a meg, put in some metadata and I still don't know where they get hundreds of megs from
