#1340 closed Bug (wontfix)

Sort by Activity when all paused displays unnecessary looping

Reported by: jidanni Owned by: charles
Priority: Lowest Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.34
Severity: Trivial Keywords:


A clear case of Transmission spinning its wheels: Start "transmission -p". Now type ALT v a for Sort by Activity, or use the mouse to do it. Note how the torrents listed keep resorting themselves, even though no activity is occurring, as they are all paused.

Therefore a better algorithm should give the same order even though they all sort to zero... at least that would stop the dancing.

Indeed this reveals that even though we choose -p, transmission is probably wasting cycles resorting every second though nothing has changed... perhaps it should only resort if we are connected to something or have just clicked a fresh sort order. Also perhaps indicate what sort order we are currently using somewhere on the window instead of the user needing to click View to find out or remember.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I agree that this is correct, but IMO this is a very low priority and the effort-to-payoff ratio is very small.

If someone wants to submit a patch for this I'll be happy to accept it; otherwise, I'm going to leave this ticket closed for now.

If I knew where the sort functions are, I could attempt to write a patch.
