I am trying to setup rTorrent to seed some torrents for longer than the default, if these torrents are loaded from a watch directory. The problem is that rTorrent seems to be stopping these torrents as soon as the default seeding ratio is reached.
Extracts from my .rtorrent.rc
Default Seeding ratio
ratio.min.set=200 ratio.max.set=210 ratio.upload.set=20M
Setting up view/group for torrents loaded from watch directory
view.add = view_group_2 view.persistent = view_group_2 group.insert = group_2, view_group_2 group.group_2.ratio.enable= group.group_2.ratio.min.set=400 group.group_2.ratio.max.set=410 group.group_2.ratio.upload.set=20M method.set = group.group_2.ratio.command, d.close=
Watch directory configuration
schedule = watch_directory_3,10,10,"load.start_verbose=/home/avggeek/torrent_downloads/import/hipvt_tracker/movies/*.torrent, view.set_visible=view_group_2, d.custom1.set=/home/avggeek/torrent_downloads/completed/movies/"
I then added a torrent to the watch directory
But after the torrent exceeded the default minimum ratio, rTorrent "Closed" the torrent:
Thinking it to be a sequencing issue, I have the default seeding commands placed first, followed by the custom view commands and then the watch directory. However, this does not seem to make any difference. Any suggestions on what I should do?
I am running rTorrent 0.9.2/libtorrent 0.13.2 compiled from source (with Pyroscope's patches applied) on Debian/Squeeze.
