Specific Configuration on NASes

  • transmission-daemon needs to be run with EVENT_NOEPOLL defined on the environment. This applies to all versions of libevent, up to the current (2.0.11-stable). Reason: epoll has bugs on the kernel shipped with these devices.
  • using very high values for "cache-size-mb" has been reported to cause the same apparent freezing, or maybe its just crashing.

Example

EVENT_NOEPOLL=1 transmission-daemon -f

incorporated into the start-up script (needs to be adapted to the specific script used):

...
   EVENT_NOEPOLL=1; export EVENT_NOEPOLL
   start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --chuid ${TR_USERNAME:-nobody} --exec transmission-daemon -- ${TR_OPTIONS[@]}
