If you are having traffic halts it may be due to udp trackers. Turns out UDP trackers can halt all traffic on latest rTorrent.
We recommend you remove those, you can use retrackers option via settings to do that.
Unresponsiveness: A single config option we had set high, expecting it to perform well, can cause even GUI to be unresponsive.
We have made several issues on github about this.
In either case, you can contact support.
We can remove all your UDP trackers + update your config. Updated config will roll out in any case over time.
The udp tracker removal script we are still considering if we shall roll it out to everyone etc.
It will take several days regardless of what we decide with that.
You can follow rTorrent development at: https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/issues/
We have released several bounties for bug fixes.
