Odd network performance problem
This may be a port problem, but I'm not sure. I use an all-in-one FreeBSD 7.0 box as a router, firewall, DHCP server, fileserver, etc., at home. When I've run, downloaded some files with, and then closed rtorrent, my local and remote network performance is frequently shot and the only thing I've found that fixes the issue is a reboot of the FreeBSD box. Strangely, this is new to a recent reinstall of FreeBSD on the same hardware; the same setup worked fine in the past. I've tried both the regular and -devel versions of rtorrent, and both can produce the same problem. Apart from this issue, the system is a rock. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
