peer.disconnect_inactive_interval

If you go back to the old post announcing the feature in 1.1.3, you'll notice that it says that it disconnects inactive peers after 5 minutes.

The peer.disconnect_inactive_interval defaults to 300 and that is seconds, so if you wanted to disconnect inactive peers after 10 minutes change it to 600, 15 would be 900 and so on. Or you could make it disconnect inactive peers after 120 seconds or whatever.

Although I've read and then found that just disabling peer.disconnect_inactive has resulted in better speeds. To each their own though.

using lower than 5 minutes still isn't a good idea, you'd generate a lot more overhead that way because disconnecting and reconnecting every 60 seconds would generate more overhead. if you insist on changing it, either turn it OFF, or use a higher value than 300, like 900. Setting it lower is likely to make things worse.

"peer.disconnect_inactive This enables or disables disconnecting from inactive peers after a set period of time (default being 5 minutes). However, it will NOT disconnect if the number of peers in the swarm is low."

low being smaller than your number of connections/torrent.
