If the bottleneck is writing to disk, then fix that. Uncompressed data is ridiculous. Use something like Lagarith lags.leetcode.net/codec.html to compress before writing to disk. It's lossless, but very fast.

comment What are the rationales behind that Java does not overwrite / remove its older updates after each update?
It does remove older versions. Much older installers did not, but newer ones do. Also, the installer can be given an option that marks the installation as pinned. Future installers won't uninstall that version. This feature is intended for applications that require a specific version of java. Also, java versions that were installed before they changed the behavior to uninstall old versions will not be uninstalled. So at least one round of cleanup will be necessary if you have older versions that you don't need.

comment Looking for a fiber optic “switch” or “router” for home use
It should be mentioned that properly terminated Cat5e cables are capable of full-throughput Gigabit speeds. If you're not reaching those speeds and you've verified the cabling, then you should look at your computer. Saturating a Gigabit link is actually quite a challenge.

Just because professional system administrators come here does not mean that your question is on topic here because we might be interested.

comment In simple terms, how does a BitTorrent client initially discover peers using DHT?
@aitchnyu yes, but the torrent file might have additional/different trackers, too.
