Re: Is there to limit the time a particular torrent can download?

Well you could toggle the alternate speeds where you would limit upload and only enable download or whatever. But how to toggle that? Well, qbittorrent has an API. With Python, and the library, you could literally do this in a one-liner. See: https://qbittorrent-api.readthedocs.io/en/latest/apidoc/t...

Re: How to reduce laptop heat while using qbittorrent?

I think you called it on turbo causing the temperature rise. Since limiting CPU to 99% the CPU has stayed mostly below 150°F (never over 170°F), and the fan hasn't spun up too full jet engine mode. I'll still replace the thermal paste this weekend. I wish I had known about that turbo mode issue yea...

Re: How to reduce laptop heat while using qbittorrent?

I do have a lot of spare RAM. Does writing to the harddrive frequently vs in larger chunks make any difference in terms of CPU and heat generation? Not really. I have set my external USB HDD as the temp path and destination for all torrents. Does qbittorrent still write anything to the main interna...

Re: How to define RELATIVE directory paths for download/save directory?

You could write a simple .BAT file in the same folder as the .exe that'd replace the path in the ini files to the current drive letter.

Re: How to reduce laptop heat while using qbittorrent?

1) You should repaste + clean your laptop. If you are uncomfortable with that, please seek out a professional repair center. HP will do it for you, maybe even for free. They take good care of their Elitebook machines. These machines have excellent cooling and these coolings (copper, fan) don't degra...

Re: Move automatically FINISHED torrents to other folder

I mean, just use the "copy .torrent files for finished downloads to" option?

Re: Coreelec box and USB 3.0 SSD instead of HDD

Torrent does not do sequential writes. Ie.: Torrent will write and read blocks left and right. Two things: 1) You can use your local HDD/SSD as a temporary folder (see Settings) and then qBittorrent will copy the files over once they are downloaded. Theoretically, this should be much faster. 2) You ...

Re: How do I merge 2 seperate qBittorrent systems

You can't.

I'd just copy all the actual data to the new "main PC" and then just copy over all the .torrent files affected.
Put the data into the default download dir, and all torrents via the "Watch folder" feature.

Then just wait until it all rechecks.

Re: Widely used trackers unavailable

I just use this everywhere: https://github.com/ngosang/trackerslist/

It's done by a member of the qBittorrent project (ngosang), and its a list of working, up-to-date trackers. I just add it to every public torrent I ever need and it works superb.

Re: Does Using a VPN slow down qBittorrent?

It does, by a lot. Not because of the CPU load, but because it renders you passive.

Re: I/O errors when seeding from samba share

samba shares have always been clunky on all clients (as far as I am aware). can't you just put rutorrent/rtorrent on the pi, and make it seed directly? of course you can qbittorrent-nox too, but it's a bit heavier than the rutorrent combo.

Re: qBT "steals" all my bandwidth when in use. Load balancing available?

4G/mobile internet is really not comfortable with multiple connections. When I used that, I used a VPN (Windscribe) and then torrented on top of that. Because that way I had one single connection to the VPN server and not hundreds to other peers. Maybe try a VPN. You can build your own with Wireguar...
