Stalled Torrents - Overnight
« on: February 13, 2017, 10:43:21 am »
I have just switched from utorrent and am very impressed but.....

I have set Alternative Rates to work when I leave everything running overnight but in the morning nothing has happened
the new torrents have a status of stalled and the seeding torrents (which were very active during the day) have done nothing.

As I do a lot of seeding overnight this is a big problem for me.

Then why are you using Alternative rate limits? Just cap the upload speed at a proper value for you.

I was actually limiting the download speed.

But I don't believe that's causing the problem of no activity overnight.

With no solution it's back to utorrent (unfortunately) which works great overnight.

Did qBitTorrent download/upload any at all?

During the night nothing upload or download. The new torrent started automatically via RSS but was in a stalled status in the morning.
I've tried this several times and always the same thing happens.

During the day it works great.

qBT's settings probably aggravate or trigger this.

What's qBT's ram usage when it stalls?
Does qBT ever max out your connection during the day?

Does qBT ever max out your connection during the day? - No

If you leave Windows Task Manager running, qBT's ram usage will still get recorded -- both its current and peak usage as well as virtual memory usage.
I'm thinking maybe qBT's cache overload is causing you the same qBT-is-still-running-but-doing-nothing problem I've seen.

OK I'll do that, Is there a solution to the problem?

How do I check "both its current and peak usage as well as virtual memory usage" in task manager?

You may need to enable the columns/tabs for those.

Now my RSS links aren't even starting overnight. Doesn't the program work overnight?
