High CPU/Bandwidth according to QB


According to QuickBox I’m using 40% CPU and 200MB/s down 60MB/s up even though all ruTorrent is doing is downloading something with 5MB/s. According to my console, there’s nothing strange going on.

The second I turn downloading off, everything starts to calm down and nothing is wrong. Any idea why?

Kind regards

sudo apt install nethogs

then run it and you should see exactly what is using the BW.

  ? root                                                                   11945.387   80507.305 KB/sec

Ah, that figures. rTorrent downloads straight to my nfs mount (unraid server which is on the same switch).

Why is it using 80MB/sec if I only download with 8MB/s though? And do you happen to know why it needs 14% of my CPU power to do so? nfs 12T 8.4T 3.5T 71% /home/exile/torrents/rtorrent
This is my mount


Ok, I figured out it’s rtorrent. Because if I just copy a 3GB file towards the nfs mount I get this:

  ? root                                   65778.992     230.379 KB/sec

So it’s rtorrent ■■■■■■■ up somewhere

I would suggest posting these findings and adding to rakshasa’s repo, issue #443.
