I think there is definetly something wrong with transmission build at least.
As many others have pointed out, one can still download from wget at high speed without any problems.
I have read this whole thread and tried so many different settings but its hopeless.
I have avoided my pi from crashing with the cmdline setting and the vm_min_free setting in sysctrl, but the download speed fluctuates like crazy no matter what I do.. Like some buffer has to be emptied or something.
I have made my own torrent server, so only 1 seed and no other peers. This should eliminate all concerns regarding number of connections.
Still what I see, even when limiting the download speed to a measly 300kb/s, is that transmission downloads and suddenly stops for a couple of seconds (htop tells me transmission-daemon uses 0% cpu) before it continues downloading at the indicated speed. It does this all the time.
What the hell can it be?
Is someone willing to try to build transmission 2.73 into a deb package with armhf to see if it is something wrong with our particular build 2.52?
I mean I have tried eliminating all the bottlenecks I could thing of with no luck whatsoever!
Running latest 3.2.27 kernel, and even have overclocked cpu to 900 Mhz, even though I cantell that the cpu is nowhere near being maxed out.
May I also remind you that my old arm 300Mhz could easely max out my connection at 1,2mb/s stable download. The Pi cant even do 300kb/s stable
