I am using the wernight/qbittorrent Docker instance to run qBittorrent on a Ubuntu 18.04 host.

This is the command-line I am using:

Code: [Select]
sudo docker run -d --user $UID:$GID     -p 8080:8080 -p 6881:6881/tcp -p 6881:6881/udp     -v $PWD/config:/config     -v $PWD/torrents:/torrents     -v $PWD/downloads:/downloads     -v /media/ablage/qbittorrent_downloads:/ablage wernight/qbittorrent
I have a BT_backup directory, that contains torrent files and fast-resume files.

I recently blew away the Docker instance, and re-built it, pointing at the same directories.

However, for some reason, it's now only reading 98 torrents in total - yet the BT_backup has over 1000 torrents.

Is there any reason that qBittorrent is not reading all of the torrent files? (Those torrent + fast-resume files are the only place that qBittorrent stores state for torrents, right?).

I do know that I had a low-disk space event on that VM, and some of the fast-resume files are 0 bytes - but not 900 of them.


I'm running qBittorrent on my FreeNAS machine (inside Docker).

I have a 6 x 8 TB ZFS array for main storage, and also a small SSD (512GB) for running qBittorrent, and to use as a scratch-disk.

The reason is that ZFS (being CoW) apparently doesn't cope well with torrenting - due to the way it allocates space, and can cause fragmentation problems).

So you torrent directly to the SSD (which has fast random IO, and is a separate ZFS pool), then afterwards I move the completed torrents to the main ZFS volume.

I'm using qBittorrent with the web UI - and I saw there's an option for "Keep incomplete torrents in" - to understand this correctly, this will use the specified directory as a scratchdisk right? And then move it to the set download directory for that torrent afterwards?

So even if I do a "Set location" on a torrent - qBittorrent will ignore that, and use the incomplete torrent directory until the download is complete?


I have a Macbook running qBittorrent with over 1000 torrents. The actual torrent data is stored on a CIFS server.

I've setup a new headless Ubuntu (Linux) machine, also with qBittorrent. (It's actually running on the same FreeNAS instance that is providing CIFS storage, under Bhyve).

I'd like to migrate all of the MacOS torrents across to the Linux instance.

What's the easiest way of exporting and importing the torrents to the Linux instance please?


MAC / Impact of "Coalesce reads & writes" setting?
« on: May 05, 2018, 10:56:10 PM »

Congrats on the new 4.1.0 release!

I noticed there was this in the changelog:

Coalesce reads & writes

I think this is the corresponding Github issue?

I'm using the qBittorrent on MacOS, and I'm saving on a NAS using SMB. The NAS is using magnetic spinning disks.

Do you see this option (which seems to be default off) having much impact in this scenario? (either in terms of network performance, disk performance, or disk longevity.

I might be moving to qBittorrent on Linux, saving over NFS (or SMB) - any difference there?



I had qBittorrent 4.0 on OSX running, with several active torrents.

Some of these were to an SMB volume.

Anyhow, I quit qBittorrent, and now, when I start it up again - it appears to hang. If I right-click on it's dock icon, it says Application Not Responding =(.

I assume it's wedged somehow?

Is there some way to figure out what's going on, or recover its state? Some kind of safe mode?


MAC / 4.0 builds for OSX?
« on: November 22, 2017, 09:08:09 PM »

I noticed 4.0 is out (and now 4.0.1). Congratulations!

However, there don't seem to be any OSX builds on the download page (

The latest OSX builds are 3.3.16.

Are the OSX builds coming shortly?


MAC / OSX 3.4.0 builds?
« on: August 24, 2017, 10:39:06 PM »

The beta release of 3.4.0 was announced a couple of weeks ago.

It said that OSX builds might follow.

I'm just curious why the might? Did something happen with the OSX builds? Any ETA on when they might be available? Or issue tracking them?
