#3135 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Cancel all communication when both upload and download rates are set to 0

Description

I have a setup where it is beneficial to me to only access torrents at certain times of the day. Unluckily for me these are usually when I am asleep.

If I use the scheduler and set both upload and download rates to 0, there is still a lot (by local standards) traffic attributable to Transmission.

Can we add a feature to disconnect totally from the torrent network if upload and download rates are set to 0? Optionally this could be controlled by a checkbox.

How much is that?

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

This seems like only a handful of people would want, plus this would cause issues with the DHT if I'm not mistaken. I don't see this being implemented.

I would say average 3-5KB/s up and down, which multiplied by say 17 hours is a lot when your monthly Internet usage is capped at 3 GB :) If I really can't live with it I'll just fix it myself.

Imho the best way to "fix" this is to change such ISP to something better and in your place I would try really hard to do this.

If that's not an option, in your place I would rather use system scheduler to kill process and start it according to a desired schedule. This is simple, robust enough and will stop traffic and all other activity like HDD access, etc. Imho, that's a system automation task and virtually each modern OS provides tools on it's own to handle such tasks. So why there is need to reinvent the wheel and make client itself more bloated? For example I bet I can configure this in a just a few minutes under Linux by using cron scheduler and hardly would take much longer in any other OS.
