rtorrent freezes for 1-2min?

My rtorrent is acting wierdly. It is working for 1 or 2 minutes and than stops for another 1-2 min, than working again. I mean when its not working, I cant get any response in screen, and at this time, there are no data traffic.
stat looks like this: ____IIIIIIIIIIII____IIIIIIIIIIII____IIIIIIIIIIII_____
My system is updated, and there is nothing relevant in the logs. in rtorrent.rc there are rate and peer limits, 4 whatch directory and nothing else.
So what do you think? What is this?

Re: rtorrent freezes for 1-2min?

I have the same problem, since approx. one month ago.

My configuration file .rtorrent.rc :

# Maximum and minimum number of peers to connect to per torrent.
min_peers = 40
max_peers = 52

# Same as above but for seeding completed torrents (-1 = same as downloading)
min_peers_seed = 10
max_peers_seed = 52

# Maximum number of simultanious uploads per torrent.
max_uploads = 8

# Global upload and download rate in KiB. "0" for unlimited.
#download_rate = 0
#upload_rate = 70

# Default directory to save the downloaded torrents.
directory = /home/helq/Downloads/torrent

# Default session directory. Make sure you don't run multiple instance
# of rtorrent using the same session directory. Perhaps using a
# relative path?
session = /home/helq/.rtorrent/

# Watch a directory for new torrents, and stop those that have been
# deleted.
#schedule = watch_directory,5,5,load_start=/home/helq/Downloads/torrent/watch/*.torrent
#schedule = untied_directory,5,5,stop_untied=

# Close torrents when diskspace is low.
schedule = low_diskspace,5,60,close_low_diskspace=100M

# The ip address reported to the tracker.
#ip =
#ip =

# The ip address the listening socket and outgoing connections is
# bound to.
#bind =
#bind =

# Port range to use for listening.
port_range = 49164-49164

# Start opening ports at a random position within the port range.
port_random = no

# Check hash for finished torrents. Might be usefull until the bug is
# fixed that causes lack of diskspace not to be properly reported.
check_hash = yes

# Set whetever the client should try to connect to UDP trackers.
#use_udp_trackers = yes

# Alternative calls to bind and ip that should handle dynamic ip's.
#schedule = ip_tick,0,1800,ip=rakshasa
#schedule = bind_tick,0,1800,bind=rakshasa

# Encryption options, set to none (default) or any combination of the following:
# allow_incoming, try_outgoing, require, require_RC4, enable_retry, prefer_plaintext
# The example value allows incoming encrypted connections, starts unencrypted
# outgoing connections but retries with encryption if they fail, preferring
# plaintext to RC4 encryption after the encrypted handshake
encryption = allow_incoming,try_outgoing,enable_retry,require,require_RC4

# Enable DHT support for trackerless torrents or when all trackers are down.
# May be set to "disable" (completely disable DHT), "off" (do not start DHT),
# "auto" (start and stop DHT as needed), or "on" (start DHT immediately).
# The default is "off". For DHT to work, a session directory must be defined.
dht = auto

# UDP port to use for DHT. 
dht_port = 6881

# Enable peer exchange (for torrents not marked private)
peer_exchange = yes

# Do not modify the following parameters unless you know what you're doing.

# Hash read-ahead controls how many MB to request the kernel to read
# ahead. If the value is too low the disk may not be fully utilized,
# while if too high the kernel might not be able to keep the read
# pages in memory thus end up trashing.
#hash_read_ahead = 10

# Interval between attempts to check the hash, in milliseconds.
#hash_interval = 100

# Number of attempts to check the hash while using the mincore status,
# before forcing. Overworked systems might need lower values to get a
# decent hash checking rate.
#hash_max_tries = 10

# preallocate files; reduces defragmentation on filesystems that support this
#   e.g. ext4, btrfs
# DO NOT enable on ext3!
# see for details
# system.file_allocate.set = yes

# Change the limits, the defaults should be sufficient.

# Preallocate files; reduces defragmentation on filesystems.
system.file_allocate.set = yes

# The following schedule option is intended to stop rTorrent
# from downloading data when disk space is low.
schedule = low_diskspace,5,60,close_low_diskspace=100M

I'm suffering this too. Did you find any solution?

Re: rtorrent freezes for 1-2min?

What version rtorrent are you guys using? I've noticed this "stalling" problem on another system with (what would correspond to) rtorrent-git from the AUR. On my Arch laptop I use rtorrent-color from the AUR, and it's rock-solid.

Edit: Are you serious about "1-2min"? That's a long time. In my case it stalls for a few seconds (while I pummel the keyboard).
