Tracker announce interval

Post by airbit »

Hey,

I just started using Qbittorrent and just joined the forum today. I am coming from nearly 10 years of transmission usage but finally had to leave it behind as it has no-check/skip verification option. Been very impressed with qbit so far.

When I upload a torrent to a tracker in some cases it can take a few minutes for the torrent to register so I get the tracker response "Unregistered torrent"

Now on transmission when i get an error response the following happens.
1 - Announces to the tracker if gets an error waits 1 minute to announce again to tracker.
2 - Announces to the tracker again and if it gives the same or another error transmission then waits 5 mins.
3 - Announces to the tracker again and if it gives the same or another error transmission then waits 30 mins.
4 - Announces to the tracker again and if it gives the same or another error transmission then waits 30 mins.
5 - And so on......

I can not see the intervals in the qbittorrent webUI so am curious is the behaviour similar to transmission or does it differ. If it differs what exactly happens.

Would appreciate any input.


Currently using qBittorrent v4.3.2 Web UI (64-bit) in a docker container from image ghcr.io/linuxserver/qbittorrent

So it looks like from my tests that if qBittorrent gets a not registered torrent response from a tracker it waits an hour before announcing to that tracker again.

Is it possible to change this or get more info about what announce internals qbittorrent uses for each response from the trackers or is it always 1 hour.

P.S not sure why this was moved to the Docker section as this is something that will affect all versions not just docker which is why i posted in the generic section
