6. The Bottom Bar and Left-hand Menu

6.1 The bottom bar

The bottom menu bar was added in ruTorrent 3.0. It shows the total upload/download speed information along with any limitations. This information can be used to set or adjust the server’s throttle level. If you have “Plugin Disk space” installed, the bottom menu also shows the remaining space.

Hint: As best ruTorrent practice, keep 5% of free space to prevent your torrent client from freezing. Should you ever see a warning as shown below, please remove some space by deleting unnecessary torrents.

6.2 Left-side menu

The left side menu is designed to provide quick info about loaded torrents.

A quick summary of all the elements within the left-side menu.

  • “All” – Sum of total loaded torrents
  • “Downloading” – Total torrents that are currently downloading
  • “Completed” – Total torrents that have been completed.
  • “Active” – Sum of torrents that are currently downloading/uploading.
  • “Inactive” – Status of torrents that are currently stopped.
  • “Error” – If for example there are torrents with no seeders, it will be marked as an error.
  • “Labels” – We can label our torrents with a different name, hence to that, labels will be shown here.
  • “Search” – The results from our most recent search will be displayed here.
  • “Trackers” – Displays currently loaded trackers.
  • “Feeds” – If our RSS feed is set up, feeds will be displayed here as well.

No centralised resource allocation in BitTorrent e

No centralised resource allocation in BitTorrent exists. Instead, every peer maximises their download rate.

A peer will download from whoever they can. To decide who to upload to, they will use a variant of the “tit-for-tat” algorithm.

The tit-for-tat strategy comes from game theory. The essence is:

“Do onto others as they do onto you”

  1. On the first move, cooperate
  2. On each succeeding move do what your opponent did the previous move
  3. Be prepared to forgive after carrying out just one act of retaliation

4.Managing ruTorrent
