I’m currently on a hetzner server (32GB Ram, 2 x 2TB Enterprise HDD, Intel Xeon E3-1246V3) and I have to admit the load stays pretty high.
Currently running Plex, Sonarr, Radarr, Resilio and BTsync. The main culprit is rtorrent. I download files pretty fast but the the load starts climbing to 12-15. Is this normal or should I ask for new HDD? After the download is completed the load drops to 1.5 - 2.00 (which I still find pretty high because no one is watching or doing stuff).
