torrents stop once completed?


jsac

Recommended Posts

as im takin that setup it is:

prioritize any torrents with any of the following features:

share ratio below: 100%

numbers of seeds is less than: 1

/ignore

/ignore

for non-prioritized torrents:

limit the upload rate to [use 0 to stop torrent]: 0

so im tellin it to prioritize torrents with less than a 1:1 ratio... therefore the last setting shouldnt apply to the torrents if there not 1:1 (which the torrents that stopped werent)

I'm having trouble with the seeding options also. I'd like to have the option to seed until the ration is 1:1 and then ignore it.

Presumably these configurations should be able to set this up:

Prioritize any torrents with any of the following features:

share ratio below: 100%

numbers of seeds is less than: 2

/ignore

/ignore

For non-prioritized torrents:

limit the upload rate to [use 0 to stop torrent]: 0

Since it's supposed to Prioritize any torrent with less than 100% share ratio, any under 1:1 should continue seeding. But once it reaches 1:1 (as long as there isn't only 1 seed), it should become non-prioritized, in which case it should stop the torrent.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case. I've fiddled around with these controls, and the torrents usually stop seeding a little while after it gets finished regardless of it's seed ratio.

I hope this gets fixed soon.

Thanks.

I think the problem is that you set the number of seeds less than: to a very small number.

If your torrent has more seeds than 2 in your case then it doesn't gets priority and stops.

heres the big question: should there be an "or" in there?

Prioritize any torrents with any of the following features:

share ratio below: 100%

or

numbers of seeds is less than: 2

/ignore

/ignore

For non-prioritized torrents:

limit the upload rate to [use 0 to stop torrent]: 0

as in does: it hafta meet just one requirement to stop or does it continue till both r met?

Well I figured out a way to work around this problem, at least for my purposes. I put down:

Prioritize any torrents with all of the following features:

share ratio below: 100%

numbers of seeds is less than: 9999

For non-prioritized torrents:

limit the upload rate to [use 0 to stop torrent]: 0

Since almost all torrents are going to have less than 9999 seeds, that condition is pretty much always be met. Then it takes a look at the share ratio. Once the ratio hits 1:1, all of the conditions will be met and the torrent will be considered a non-prioritized torrent, so it will stop.

This doesn't help torrents that you want to keep going because there are too few seeds, but that doesn't happen all the time. And you can always force start that if you want.

It'd be nice to the the any option to work for a bit more flexibility, but I'm satisfied with it for now. It's still a great client.

what would be nice is to rework that section and add a "Seeding Ratio" section, because it's still confusing.

something like the Autopilot plugin for Azureus. right-click the torrent, choose Change Auto-stop settings for this torrent, and you get the following:

Stop Mode: choose either User defined/Unlimited Seeding/Stop Immediately

Max Share Ratio:

Minimum Seed Count:

Maximum Seed Count:

Remove when complete (tick box)

and delete torrent file (tick box)

and that's it. and there's a global option to just seed all torrents to whatever ratio you want.

Also, alot of you wonder why your torrents are stopping and ALL of you have the "Limit [0 To stop:" set to zero. Am i missing something here or you really dont read the options you check on ? ;)

we want them to stop ;)

ONCE theyve met the specified criteria in the settings.... ie. 1:1 shared
