    Default Re: ktorrent takes too much cpu speed

    KGet and Ktorrent are two very different beasts.
    Kget only downloads from one source per file. Ktorrent downloads and uploads simultaneously from/to many sources, sometimes having to manage hundreds of connections depending on the torrent's number of seeds / leeches and on your configuration. That takes a lot of resources, in CPU cycles and in RAM.

    You can set this in ktorrent's setup. Relevant settings are:
    - max # of (simultaneous file) downloads
    - max # of (simultaneous file) uploads
    - max connections per torrent
    - max connections global
    - # of upload spaces

    Any major torrent site will have a FAQ explaining these settings, do a search.
