#3735 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Enhancement: control Upload/Download as a ratio

Reported by: guben Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.11
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Currently Transmission offers a lot of control to cap the speed of download.

But often I want to end up with a particular ratio of upload:download regardless of speed, so that by the time I finish download I am also finished seeding at a 1:1 ratio.

Desired: a choice to set bandwidth limits based on a ratio of upload:download, such that the speed limit of either would fluctuate automatically over time in order to maintain the chosen ratio. Note that such a setting could be done in conjunction with the current speed limits (if desired), or it could override them.

I don't like this idea. Downloading as fast as possible initially is the best way to keep your ratio high -- you'll have more pieces available that peers may be interested in. Limiting download rate based on upload rate could quickly turn into a negative feedback loop.
