Nope. It's got a default of no throttle. I forget the default rates, if
any, but I always adjust both up/down to the max I can stand (without
choking other apps/nodes in my local net).

E.g. I had down at 2000KB. After I restarted, running only the DVD, it
did better. However, now that I am seed, I won't be able to see much
else on the download side.

Peers is still inactive when it should be 8/8 (which rtorrent also
allows to be increased).

I think there may be something about the DVD torrent. After my post last
evening, I went to eat dinner, sleep, etc., leaving things running.
Speed must have picked up as the 1to6 was done and seeding this A.M.

But the DVD was still crawling.

As mentioned, it did pick up when I restarted and is now seeding. But
info shows peers inactive.

I'm almost sure this has something to do with it. With peer_exchange
enabled and dht enabled, I ought to be seeing something different.

Thanks for trying to help out!

I'll continue to seed for a couple weeks.
