When running bitmonerod and using the following bitmonerod bandwidth parameters, is the rate measured in bits or bytes?

  • limit_up Used within bitmonerod while running.
  • limit_down Used within bitmonerod while running.

  • --limit-rate-up Command line argument for launching bitmonerod.

  • --limit-rate-down Command line argument for launching bitmonerod.

All of these are measured in kB (1024 bytes). See src/p2p/net_node.inl, in set_rate_up_limit.

The defaults are 2048 kB/s upload, and 8192 kB/s download. If those are near or above your connection's capabilities, you may want to lower them to a bit lower, to keep some QoS. Similarly if you have a fast connection, you might want to increase them.

The rate is measured is kiloBytes per second.
