[LOCKED DUPLICATE] VERY slow to quit - any good explanation?

Postby Jethryn Freyman » Fri Mar 12, 2010 6:28 am

I recently though I'd give Transmission a try, after having switched to uTorrent for the past 6 months or so. uTorrent had just lost 17GB of a torrent that had taken 2 months to get through, so I was quite peeved.

Unfortunately in this time Transmission still takes forever to quit - several minutes sometimes, while other clients shut down in a matter of seconds. Is there a decent reason why Transmission takes so much LONGER than other torrent clients to quit? I don't think "because it has to disconnect from trackers" is a good answer - other clients shut off much faster. If this is the case, T could certainly do with having it's shut down code optimised.

Other than that, everything is working splendidly - time to switch back to T.

Thanks guys :D

This appears to be a duplicate of this thread. To reduce forum clutter, I'm locking this thread. Please continue this discussion in the other thread. Thanks!
