#945 closed bug (Fixed)

Bandwidth limit not applied to DHT/Peer Exchange

Reported by: fe@… Owned by: andar
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Core Version: 1.1.8
Keywords: Cc:


Overall bandwidth limit is not applied to DHT/Peer Exchange (udp packets). With no active torrents, bandwidth for DHT/Peer Exchange is over 100kpbs -- far in excess of the chosen overall limit of 20kpbs set in options. Connection becomes unusable unless DHT and Peer Exchange are disabled.

These posts seem to indicate the same issue with no resolution other than to disable the DHT and Peer Exchange features or UDP port forwarding:

  • Version changed from 1.1.6 to 1.1.8

I can also confirm this on 1.1.8. Very frustrating as this resulted in great network instability on a LAN (other network connections being dropped etc) with a broadband router with a 1024 connections limit.

DHT is limited in libtorrent trunk (what will become 0.15)..
