Settings for one download or one seed only
#1
I'm having troubles figuring out the best way of getting Vuze to behave as I want.  Can anyone suggest the best settings for Vuze to behave like this:
  • When there are queued downloads (unfinished torrents), only one of these should be active.  As it finishes, the next queued one is made active and so on.  All completed torrents (seeds) should be paused.
  • When there are no more queued downloads, only one of the completed torrents is seeded at a time.  The one to seed should be the one with the highest ratio.  It should seed until it reaches a share ratio of 1.0 and then stop (or go back to being queued) and then the next highest seed will start.
I am after this behaviour because I want my downloads to take precedence to any seeding, but when the downloads are finished I want to forget about seeding and just have all the completed torrents seed until they get to a ratio of 1.0.  When they get to 1.0 I can remove them from Vuze and transfer the files onto external storage, so it's best for the ones that are closest to 1.0 to be seeded first, since they will finish soonest and I can free up disk space soonest.

Is there any particular combination of settings to achieve this?  I have experimented quite a bit but I can't get it quite right - either I get multiple completed torrents seeding at the same time (making it take longer for either of them to reach 1.0) or the seeds take priority and my downloads get queued.

It's a bit difficult to experiment with different settings too because the JVM crashes about 25% of the time I change a setting or move between pages on the options tab, so it's a very laborious process to adjust settings.  (I have looked through the crash logs and it looks like a crash in the native code that interfaces with GTK or similar when controls are updated, so I don't think there's anything that the Vuze folks can do about that.)

Do you have a sensible upload-limit set? There is an opton under Tools->Options->Queue->Seeding that should prevent extra seeds from starting if you are seeding at capacity. Otherwise Vuze does like to start additional seeds to try and maximise your overall upload speed.

There is also a setting under Queue regarding counting seeds as (not) using slots when seeding at a slow rate that might help.

Sorry about the GTK crashes, as you say, there are issues with the GTK stuff. I think there's a new SWT build that we might look into releasing sometime soonish.

IF you haven't already, try this:

Go to:  Options > Queue
set "Max simultaneous downloads" to = 1
set "Max active torrents" to = 1
set "Min simultaneous downloads to = 0 (zero)
 
then go to: Options > Queue > Seeding > Auto Starting
set "Rank completed torrents for auto-starting based on:"  to = None
 

then go to: Options > Queue > Seeding > First Priority
set "First priority goes to torrents with  ANY  of the following:"  " A share ratio under" = 1:1
at "Ignore First Priority rules above for:"  Tick the box for "Torrents with 0 Peers"
 
then go to: Options > Queue > Seeding > Ignore Rules
Tick the box for "Ignore torrents with 0 Peers"
