The red light at the bottem is an overall mesurement showing the
ratio for all downloads / uploads. It is ether red or green and
stays red untill you have uploadded as much as you have
downloadded or uploadded a little bit more. If there is a lot of
people shareing a file then your upload tends to slow down.
