    I had a question about seeding torrents.

    Is it ok to seed more then one torrent?

    For example right now I'm seeding 6 of them. Does my uploading speed lower if I seed more torrents?

    And also do all those torrent that I'm seeding affect my download speed?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Azureus and uTorrent do set a max number of active torrents if you use their good settings.

    It is more important to have the max upload speed in your bittorrent client set at 80% of your overall upload speed.
    Setting it higher will affect your performance.

    I do not think having more torrents open for seeding will affect your performance, but, depending on your speed, you could be giving very small amounts to each peer.
    So you could be thinning your uploads out a bit.
