#2199 closed Bug (fixed)

DHT should not announce stopped torrents

Reported by: jch Owned by: charles
Priority: High Milestone: 1.72
Component: libtransmission Version: 1.71
Severity: Normal Keywords: dht


We're announcing stopped torrents to the DHT, which is stupid for at least two reasons:

  • it creates extra DHT traffic for people with a lot of stopped torrents;
  • we'll be contacted by random peers that we induced to believe that we're participating in our stopped torrents.

The attached patch fixes that.

By the way, it looks like there's some code duplication: starting torrents is done in both checkAndStartImpl and torrentStart. Since I don't understand the distinction between the two, the attached patch changes to trigger a DHT announce from both (it used to be done in the former only).
