Solaris Specific Configuration

Solaris Issues

  • Solaris has a very low default for the 'max open files' ulimit (256). Transmission usually needs more open files then that. Increase with 'ulimit -n 4096' before starting transmission. This may need to be done as root before becoming the transmission user.
  • Libevent has troubles with evports (the default poll mechanism used on Solaris). Disable evports by exporting EVENT_NOEVPORT=1 before starting transmission. Failure to do this results in many peer connections being dropped after several minutes and the internal web server becoming unresponsive.
