beaubien Posted February 3, 2006 Report Share Posted February 3, 2006 Hi guys, I've been using µT for a while now and like it a lot. There is however an option I'd really like to see implemented, which is some sort of seeding mode selection. If you have a lot of space free on your hard disk then this won't be an issue for you. I'm not sure what the current behaviour is in regards to choosing which torrents to seed (probably seed:leech ratio / current torrent ratio or something), but when you're low on space, it becomes problematic. example: -you start off with 20 torrents queued: 400mb each (~8gb total), 4gb free on your drive, and begin downloading (max 2 active dl, max 6 active total = max 4 active uploads)-after completing 5 torrents, one upload is queued. at this point it's not really important which one, but:-after completing 9 torrents, 5 uploads are queued, usually the ones with the HIGHEST ratio.-you shortly get 11 error'd torrents: out of disk space.To continue your session properly, you need to finish seeding something so you can delete it/burn it/whatever, and this is where the problem currently lies. Assuming you seed 1:1, you often end up with your uploads queued at 0.9 or higher. The only way to resolve the situation atm, is force the almost-1:1 uploads to finish, remove them, and start your downloads again. Which isn't SO bad, except that you have to remain around until they hit 1:1 to do it!What I'm proposing is to be able to toggle between the regular seeding selection formula, and one similar to the "end-game" mode for downloads, but in this case when a torrent is almost at the ratio you've chosen to stop seeding at, it gets higher priority then any other (except maybe one with an extremely high seed:leech ratio where you may not want to break the connection and end up with no one to seed to).Thanks for reading.
