So I tried to move my torrent usage from my desktop running Windows over to my Mac Mini 2011 model running as a 24/7 server today. I grabbed Automatic (awesome application!) and created filters to use with any torrent-client out there, whether it got RSS support or not to automatically download all my regular stuff the second it's available. The problem is that my torrent client of choice under OS X (Transmission) isn't allowed on many private trackers with the latest 2.50 release because of some awkward issues reported. So I'm stuck with the older 2.42 release which hangs and gives me beach-balls every time I try to download more than a few torrents at once. It works just fine the first few seconds, or even minutes with 4+ torrents loaded but after that it just hangs and I have to force quit it to get it back up and running but after a few seconds to a few minutes it all happens again. It works perfectly when I have less that 3-4 torrents, but more than that then it's a no-go it seems. Same goes for the latest µTorrent for Mac (2.0.2), which seems like a buggy client in the first place anyway, but tossing more than a few torrents into the mix and it freezes as well. µTorrent for Windows (keeping with good old 2.0.4) is doing just fine no matter if I toss 2-3, or 50-100 torrents at it at once. All data is saved on a file-server measuring a steady 90-140 mbps write performance over dual-link LACP connection, so shouldn't be much problem there either. So which client for Mac is able to handle some traffic without freezing?
