Re: Set Download Queue Limit

I am not running on a Mac so it could be different but ... Go to "Tools" -> "Transmission Options". (There is a wrench icon that is a shortcut to this.) Select the "Queue" tab. Make sure the checkmark for "Download queue size" is set and enter a value of 1. Hope this helps. You don't say if you are ...

Re: Successively file downloading feature

OK, imagine there is just the one seed and perhaps 10 peers. Right now the seed sends part 1 to one of the peers, part 2 to another, etc. Those peers share the parts they got with each other. This means that the initial seed only need to use bandwidth to send one copy. The other bandwidth, to get 10...

Re: Transmission kills lan and internet bandwidth!

I would suggest starting with strict limits and slowly increase them. You don't mention any bandwidth limits Set some low bandwidth limits as well as a low max number of connections. Keep in mind that Transmission measures in Kilo BYTES. If you have a one megabit upload then you need to set your max...

Faulty behavior if first tracker is bad

Many times I will start a download, via a magnet link, and Instead of the 12/1234 notation for the seeds and peers it will just have "12". If I check the trackers I find that the first tracker is bogus and when I remove that tracker the seeds and peers column will then show the correct "12/1234" for...

Wild sizes for http://john.bitsurge.net/public/biglist.p2p.gz

I try to remember to download http://john.bitsurge.net/public/biglist.p2p.gz about once a week. I am a bit worried about the different sizes reported each time. I would expect it to vary as changes are made but what I see is radical changes in size. Last week it reported 410,000 (ish) entries. Just ...

Why is there UDP traffic if utp is turned off?

When I look at the "Current Sessions" on my NAT gateway I see a lot of UDP listed. I have utp disabled in transmission-daemon so what is causing these? The local port listed is the one I configured transmission to use and the IP is the system it is running on. Why do I care? The gateway has to keep ...

Re: Watch-dir on network folder

Is it possible to make the watch directory local to the host running transmission and access it over the network from the client? I.E. have your raspberry share the watch dir and then access it over the network from the system you are putting files in the watch dir. I ran that way for a while and it...

Re: Transmission keeps seeding while file has been removed or deleted (!)

You can set the default upload download ratio to limit how much you upload. Would it work to configure transmission such that your "series" folder is where it moves completed torrents? In the settings.json configuration file these are called "incomplete-dir" and "download-dir". Then Transmission wil...

Re: Permission denied to windows share on Raspberry Pi 3 (Jessie)

Is the uid=1000 the user that Transmission runs as? Could you try "su" to that user ID and see if you can write to the mount? Also think you should figure out some way to verify that transmission is really going to, and complaining about /media/windowshare. Maybe try it without the mount and see if ...

Re: Transmission keeps seeding while file has been removed or deleted (!)

On Unix/Linux systems files have "use" counts. If you remove a file while a program still has it open, I.E. transmission, then the directory entry is deleted but the actual data remains. The data and the name you use to find it are two different things. When the use count drops to zero then the file...

Re: Build Transmission-daemon on raspberry

No, the queue order is not preserved. It does not even default to date added.

Display force start

Is there any way to find out if a torrent is in the "force start" vs. "start" condition?

I don't see any difference in the color of the up/download arrows. Nothing in the general tab either.

Re: Build Transmission-daemon on raspberry

Just built 2.92 on an Odroid C1. That is Ubuntu so it is probably a little different. It actually went smoothly. I only had to install one library/package. But I had previously built 2.84 and had to install quite a few packages before it was complete. It was pretty much run "make", check the error m...

Re: Download keeps stopping at 96.23% - Why?

If the original seed is removed before the peers have a complete copy then there is no way for them to finish. The peers will share with each other and eventually they all have the same percentage but there is no seed to fill in the missing part. If the peers keep trying then new downloads will also...
