Temporarily prioritize one torrent


cecolon

Recommended Posts

Scenario: user is already downloading some large linux distros, which he does not need immediately. Then he finds himself in need of another distro as quickly as possible, and starts downloading it.

Feature: some function that makes this torrent the only priority, which effectively pauses all other torrents and resumes them automatically when the prioritized torrent is finished.

Alternatively, a feature that puts this torrent in the front of the queue, sets number of maximum active downloads to 1, and resets this number after downloading finishes.

Put the other torrents to LOW priority, upload slots to 1 for them.

Set "hurry up!" torrent to HIGH priority...and possibly even set its seeding ratio low so it will likely meet its seeding goals when it finishes downloading.

While downloading, you CAN raise/lower downloading torrents positions in the queue...and then allow fewer active torrents at once so only the "hurry up!" torrent is running.

How does seeding ratio affect download speed? I thought it was supposed to come into effect once download was complete.

I would say lowering the active torrents to one and putting the HURRY UP torrent first in the queue should do the job.
