各位大神们 来冒冒泡啊  随便吐点口水也好哇

我是在普通服务器测试的 等pi到了才知道pi上效果如何~~

Since Raspberry Pi, transmission always crashed on me with big files. That's why I'd suggest to compile and use libtorrent/rtorrent/xmlrpc instead. It takes time (10-15 times each for rtorrent/libtorrent), but it's damn worth it. Also rutorrent is a good webui.

Using bananian, apache + samba + rtorrent running, total ram consumed is 52MBs

Someone pls write how to install rtorrent and rutorrent

i made also bad experience with transmission, next i wanted to try deluge.

Fortunately transmission worked great for me on Banana Pi.
On Raspberry Pi I got disk disconnections, but hard drive is usb, not sata like in Banana Pi, which is much more estable.

For me I didn't remove anything but install transmission-daemon. As what you say the setting is a real pain butbecause iI have done on raspberry pi before so I just copy all the setting over.  So far the highest speed on a single file is more than 4mb/s, on raspberry pi will not reach 2mb/s. Tried before download more than 8gb single file with no issue, however advice to pause the file if u going shut down or reboot to avoid corruption.

Btw surprise to see there is upload, for me I set the upload to zero from what I remember but somehow it really stay at zero upload, it suppose to be unlimited
