Does Transmission fail after 1500 active torrents?

Post by TorrentMaster59 » Fri Dec 16, 2016 2:55 pm

I heard from a tracker staff that Transmission will start to silently fail after 1300-1500 torrents.

It won't report any errors but it will fail to report stats to the tracker.

Deluge/Transmission are said to both have this bug.

Can anyone confirm if this is true? If so, any plans for a fix?

Transmission will start to silently fail after 1300-1500 torrents.
Over the years I've heard of users running many times that number without issue. Specific trackers can have problems, usually due to a weakness or error in their software, but they may blame Transmission without providing solid evidence. Just my take on things. In any case, before anything could be investigated, specific evidence would have to be provided.

Thanks for reply. I'll take my chances and allow it to go over 1500 but keep a close eye on it. I will report back if I notice something strange.
