In my experience, Deluge and Transmission don't scale really well with a high number of torrents/active peers.
rTorrent is better, but I'm not that impressed, since there is now queuing system, many active torrents it slows down a lot. I have to stop torrents in order to get proper download speeds. Also the XMLRPC requests can be very slow when rTorrent is under load
