Auto-resume of torrents paused by tracker errors

Postby Jethryn Freyman » Tue Jan 01, 2008 8:09 pm

I've noticed over the last few days that the nightlies have changed in the way that they handle tracker errors.

Transmission used to display the error, but the torrent would remain active, and would eventually resume downloading/uploading a few minutes later when the tracker error was resolved.

The latest nightlies don't do this, instead, they seem to pause the torrent when they encounter a tracker error, and don't resume it, even if the tracker error had been resolved many hours ago.

This ends up quite inconvenient when I leave torrents downloading unattended for long periods of time, just to come back and find that my torrents have been stopped.

Any input guys?

Agreed. It's a little annoying to have torrents paused automatically. Maybe automatically resume after 5 minutes or so.

Torrents are no longer auto-paused.

Torrents are randomly paused on the 1.0 release after being active?

Still a problem

I don't know if this exactly the same problem but my router periodically restarts itself and Transmission pauses the downloads saying tracker error but does not resume them even though the connection is only down for at most a minute. It would be cool if it kept reattempting connection.

It doesn't pause them they just don't carry on downloading and need to be manually paused and resumed

I have exactly the same problem. I think that incorporate an auto-pause/auto-resume in a certain hour defined by user would result. My router restarts twice a day...

I was wrong! Torrents don't pause, some of them just don't carry on after router restarts

I have the exact same problem as DavidR. Please fix it at the earliest. Its unfortunate that such a problem exists.

This thread is over a year old. If you want this so badly please submit a patch, the earlier the better. Thanks!

the person you are talking to is one of the "they" you are talking about ; )
If this thread is one year old means that not much people want it, or it is mostly already fixed
Also the respone of livings124 (please send a patch) is because they don't like it when people think they can demand them to quickly do something because they want it quick. So it is logic to say if you want it that quick make a patch yourself [it is open source so you can make something yourself that helps it]. They do it for free and for helping other people, they don't like people demanding things ; )
