Hardware: Linksys EA8500 with attached 6 TB SATA drive by eSATA interface.
I'm downloading a large torrent (56 files with a total size of110 GB) using a transmission.
I am seeing 50% CPU usage by transmission process and 50% nic.
Downloading speed is only 500 KB/s while my internet connection is 100 Mbit/s.
Why this task so much CPU time?
Here is output of mount, sda4 is my 6 TB HDD:
/dev/sda4 on /mnt/D type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
