#3937 closed Bug (fixed)

inactive webseeds are listed as active

Reported by: User294 Owned by: jordan
Priority: Low Milestone:
Component: Transmission Version: 2.13+
Severity: Minor Keywords:


To reproduce:

Try to use torrent with non-working web seeds. Example torrent attached.


GTK client lists torrent as active - "downloading from 3 of 3 connected peers". However, no any download happens but no any (web seed related) errors or statuses given either.


Either download progresses and then some data should be obtained, or there should be some indication that web seed does not works. It's not a good idea to show status like if there is success and download will work when there is some failure actually and it never completes. For example it could be good to mark non-working web seeds with red color and/or or so like this happens for trackers.

r11754 webseed.c:

#3937 "inactive webseeds are listed as active" -- fixed.

This is caused by libtransmission using tr_webseedIsActive() in two ways: (1) webseed.c uses it to know if there are any pending requests, and (2) tr_torrentStat() uses it to set tr_stat.webseedsSendingToUs.

Having a queued task isn't enough to be "active" in use (2) -- it needs to know if the webseed is actually sending data. These two uses should be split into separate functions.
