    I just retired my old windows machine that I used as a seeding box and a media server. I used to run an old version of uTorrent and it ran great. I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 and setup headless Deluge and it just doesn't seem to be working as well -- It's just not seeding as much. I've tried messing with bandwidth settings, but it's not performing too well. I'm thinking about trying something different. Anyone have any recommendations?

    I should learn to read the entire OP before I suggest Deluge haha

    I have used Transmission (which I think comes with Ubuntu) and it's worked as well as Deluge for me.

    Does Transmission have a web ui? Is it any good? Maybe I'll give it a shot.

    It does have web UI which I've used for many years, though not recently. It was alright last time I checked

    Many years ago I switched from utorrent to qbitorrent on Windows. They have a Linux client as well.

    TransmissionBT is another one you can look for.

    How do you feel about the console?

    I'm a huge fan of using screen to run an rtorrent session on my server. It's a little tricky to figure out at first, but great once you learn it.
