    The neverending search for a replacement for Azureus



    Some of you know i really don't like azureus, purely from the POV of believing a download client ought not to eat memory at an expotential rate It's a problem of JAVA in general.

    In any case, I seem to have found it's antithesis - a fast, stable and more importantly _tiny_ client called uTorrent. I've been trialling various alternative clients for a while and i'm pretty impressed with this one - perhaps it's worth a try?

    http://www.utorrent.com/

    You don't need to install it and, for it's size, there's a heck of a lot of features packed in there. It also seems to manage the connection better than BitComet and even includes a natty scheduling bit

    Was there not a thread on clients the other day? Maybe it was one of my other forums, I always get confused.

    Anyhow, Azureus sucks imo, but Bit Tornado does me nicely, and ABC's pretty good too.

    There was - and it got a bit messy as someone took the fact that i didn't like the bloatedness of azureus the wrong way. I'd like to keep this thread about alternatives if possible, rather than provoking (another) debate on the merits/problems with Azureus. To be clear - this is about looking for an alternative for those of us that feel the bloated (and otherwise very good) Azureus isn't quite what we'd want. uTorrent wasn't mentioned the other day so i thought it worth while posting this up to see what others feel about it.

    A few things missing right now:

    - blocklist support. IMHO i've never been that convinced about blocklists but apparently this will be in fairly soon.
    - DHT support - again, there's a debate on this one too but i think it has to go in.

    I'm getting as-fast-as speeds with uTorrent (wasn't with BitComet tbh after testing it over the w/e) as Azureus and am, so far, very happy with it. Bitcomet also seemd to kill my connection - e.g. limit u/l rate to 24k in azureus or utorrent and you can still surf without too much impact, in Bitcomet it needed to be 20k..

    Sure thing

    Blocklists can be essential. One time when I was downloading a torrent, which was about 1Gb, I ended up having to download over 2Gb because one seed kept sending me..crap, basicly. Being able to block people who send bad data is a very handy feature.

    Whats DHT support though?

    Distributed Hash Table - basically means clients have an 'internal network' outside of the tracker which can be useful if the tracker goes down

    Blocklists - i meant in terms of a list of IP addresses that are flagged as evil commerical people. Bad data can still be filtered through banning a client after he's sent you x amount of rubbish.

    Ah ok, most of the groups I belong to have blocklists anyway, so not a huge deal personally. But DHT sounds like a good idea, why would people be against it?

    Privacy implications i guess. I've no objection to it - it's a very good idea when a tracker goes down

    I have tried a few of the others including bit comet and azureus, but have been using bit tornado for ages now and have found it to be the best.

    I quite liked BitComet bar it's mishandling of bandwidth (having to set ul rate lower than every other client to get decent browsing speed) and queues (watching it try and up 15 torrents at the same time!).

    Tried utorrent last night, very slow compared to Azureus. Trying bitcomet now and instantly I'm seeing a better speed.

    Five hours of download and utorrent had only got about 20mb of a 35mb file. Started bitcomet about 10 minutes ago and already I've got 5mb of it.

    Tried utorrent last night, very slow compared to Azureus. Trying bitcomet now and instantly I'm seeing a better speed.

    Five hours of download and utorrent had only got about 20mb of a 35mb file. Started bitcomet about 10 minutes ago and already I've got 5mb of it.
    To be fair, I find it faster than bitcomet but without the 'choking' effect BitComet had on my connection. Azureus is better in terms of features (and hence speed) but not by enough to make me worry (i'm maxing my connection with uTorrent) when my pc isn't becoming a swap-o-rama The new version has super seeding which should help too.. As I said, the biggest problem i had with bitcomet was it's lack of coherent queueing, which wasn't acceptable for mass downloading/seeding _for me_.
    I often feel that benchmarking them is very difficult, simply due to the way in which the protocol works. I have great faith in uTorrents developer as he seems to have come out of nowhere with such a well-functioning client even at this very early stage.
    Whatever you use - be happy

    To solve the blocklist problem with any client other than azureus (which has internal but slow support with the safepeer plugin) - simply (download, install etc) run Peerguardian before starting your Bittorrent client.

    The safepeer plugin from Azureus uses the same blocklist it just takes forever to parse, whereas with Peerguardian - its very quick to load, update and isn't a memory hog.

    I personally use Bitcomet with Peerguardian due to DHT and the inbuilt -getpeers- functions (google it) - which adds more seeders and leechers than the tracker displays.

    Yeah i'm using Peerguardian 2 now with mine... It's much better than the original which used to hog memory and cpu!
