Sample rtorrent configuration

1 post in this topic


I took some time to figure out a nice rtorrent.rc file that I thought someone else may find useful. It's commented so it should be pretty easy to change whatever it is you may feel the need to change to suit your needs.

#Set a good number of peers
min_peers = 50
max_peers = 100

#These are the ports to use
port_range = 8700-8800
port_random = yes

#Upload and Download capping in KB/s
upload_rate = 250

#Sets default download directory
directory = ./downloads/

#Sets default directory to look for .torrents
# Checks every 5 seconds in the directory for a *.torrent
schedule = watch_directory,5,5,load_start=./torrents/*.torrent
#Ignores torrents of completed files
schedule = untied_directory,5,5,stop_untied=

#This handles if rtorrent has been left open by limiting total uploaded
# schedule = name,interval in seconds, when to start, action
# action: stop_on_ratio=percentage shared (so 2.0 ratio is 200%), min size of file, percentage to share
# for files smaller then min size
schedule = ratio,60,60,stop_on_ratio=200,200M,2000

The only tough part is the schedule bit. I hope I was clear on how that works, if not please let me know and I'll provide a few more examples.
